Gibson is new in Dublin, but do not let that put you off, these guys are putting a new look on customer service. From the moment we entered this hotel, we had a welcome handover to reception by the porter, a full explanation of the hotel facilities from the receptionist standing with us on our side of the counter, a cool bedroom and bathroom (rain showers wow!) with a balcony and automated blinds, complimentary tea and coffee all day, a bar/restaurant with views that you'd forget you are in Dublin looking over Dublin port, and furniture that is different and funky. My wife and I are not fans of the ultra modern hotels, but this has positioned itself cosily between the modern and traditional style hotel.
Yes the staff have still to fine comb the nitty gritty of a new hotel, such as clearing tables, bar counters, maybe adhering a little quicker to customer tables but I promise you, the overall experience of the hotel suppresses these momentarily issues, that you will just love this hotel.
The car can be parked directly under the hotel at 14 euro per day (Hotel Rate), you are the same grounds as the O2 concert venue, city centre is sought from the luas directly outside the door for 1.60 euro, and in 7 mins you are in abbey street, the heart of Dublin city centre. We walked it twice and it was a lovely 15min flat walk. For GAA fans, Croke part is no more than 20 mins walk away (Check google map for the two locations). We had the joy of a fabulous food, knick knacks and clothes market in front of the O2 concert hall on Saturday and Sunday.
It's great, trust me. Location is perfect, away from hussle and bustle of Dublin, yet near enough to be there in 7 mins. Enjoy

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.

Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal.
