Having spent a night in the gibson hotel, I just have to recommend it.
The staff were very friendly, the room was beautifully appointed and the cleanliness in the room and throughout the hotel was superb. The food was lovely. We had a drink in the bar and the service and atmosphere were great.

This hotel is a hidden gem in Dublin, just 20 mins from the airport through the tunnel and then the luas at the door, so easy to wander up to the city centre.

I had the best sleep I have had in a long time, the bed was so comfortable.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone coming to Dublin.

During our recent holiday in Ireland we stayed twice at the gibson hotel, three nights at the beginning and two nights at the end. This hotel is fantastic in every respect, be it the trendy location in the Docklands with the tram stop and the airport coach right in front, be the friendliness an efficiency of the staff. The rooms are spacious and clean, the breakfast is superb.

Special thanks to Mr Evans Felix Sarpong who arranged the prolongation of our second stay and surprised us with some very tasty welcome sweets.

We will definitely chose the gibson hotel again.

Very modern hotel right opposite the O2. A bit outside the Centre but the tram - luas - is right in front of the hotel and takes you to the Centre within 10 minutes, very convienent. Parking is easy in the parking below the hotel.
We had a spacious executive room on the 6th Floor. WiFi works very well in the room, bathroom is spacious as well with a very good shower. Only negative point is that the bed is small and short - no kingsize - and we did not find it very comfortable.
Bar is very modern as well and offers nice meals. Reception was very efficient on check in and check out.
Apart from the low quality of the bed, this hotel is really excellent.

Dear Donkie,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us.

I was so glad to read that you enjoyed so many elements of your stay. Should we have the chance to welcome you back to the gibson, please do not hesitate to request a room with a king size bed- not all our rooms have these, however some of our bedrooms do and we will strive to accommodate your request.

Kind regards,

Modern, spacious, clean and welcoming! We think this is Dublin's best hotel despite not being in the city centre it has the Luas outside the front door and is also only a 20 minute walk to the centre. The rooms are fabulous, large with super king beds and well designed bathrooms, the bar and restaurant is great, with superb balcony overlooking Dublin docklands. We will definitely be coming back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat. Music lovers, art junkies, food fanatics - whatever your passion it's right on our doorstep. We do sleeping, meeting, dining, gigging, touring, wedding and relaxing really really well. We mix all these things with a fresh, energetic, slightly off centre approach and we know it works. Exhibitions, supporting local artists, urban weddings and the odd celebrity are elements of what makes us different to the normal Dublin Hotel. You will find our staff friendly, responsive and happy - there is a secret to this that we can't possibly share. The gibson hotel is the ideal location to explore the city and planning your stay is easy. The M1 and M50 are 8 minutes away via the Port Tunnel and we have ample covered parking for our guests. With the luas stop right outside our front door Connolly train station is only 8 minutes away and Heuston train station is a short 20 minutes from the hotel. The Luas will take you to the City centre in 10 minutes or if you prefer to take in the views of the River Liffey a brisk 15 minute walk along the quays will bring you to O'Connell street, the heart of Dublin city. Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal. The gibson hotel is modern yet comfortable, it's different and it's better, it's large, it's friendly and it's a building that is alive with great people from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. ... more   less
