“A very pleasant stay, but”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We arrived at the Morgan an hour before we were expected. The Morgan is easily accessable by public transport, we took the Dublin airport bus which dropped us off a few hundred meters from the hotel. We got a very friendly and warm welcome, and they apologised for not having our room ready, even though it wasn't their fault as we were early. They asked us to take a walk and get our first impressions of Dublin, while they would ready our room and look after our luggage.

Upon return one hour later, our room was not only ready, but due to us letting the Morgan know it was our second attempt on having a honeymoon, they upgraded us! We went from a queen room to a king room, and while I don't really felt the need for a bigger room, it came with a balcony which totally made my stay! Our luggage was already in the room as well. The room was clean, but the chairs in the room had spots, and the seat fabric didn't cover the chairs fully. It seemed like they had been unsuccessfully washed, shrunk, and still put back on the chairs. The carpet also had some spots, and the minibar wasn't fully stocked, yet one of those were you can't put your own stuff in. We like to have chilled drinks in our room, so we made use of it anyway, but be aware if you trigger the sensors in there, they might charge you. It worked out fine for us.

Clean bathroom, but seemed half finished, as the finishing around the room just wasn't there, like the missing star tops on top of the screws on the mirror, and the poor plastering job done both in the bathroom and the room itself didn't convince us that The Morgan is a five star property. It did nothing to dampen our stay, but it is those small things that make a place really shine and The Morgan really didn't cut it here. What were five star worthy was the fantastic staff, I cannot stress this enough so I'll repeat it: FANTASTIC STAFF! The bed was super comfy and the breakfast was full english/irish breakfast, so we were very happy. The cold cuts and other breakfast offers were not on the huge side, but sufficient. They also have a cute backyard, which is a bit confused designwise, but it kind off works.

Then it was the balcony... The balcony was upon first eyesight great, but upon closer inspection you could easily see the wear and tear on the building. There were also a very dead plant out there. During our stay we had both rain and sunshine, which made mould grow on the chairs out there.... I have to apologize that I didn't tell the staff about it, as it really didn't bother us (the weather wasn't warm enough to really enjoy a balcony anyway) and I also felt that since the cleaning people did remove the mould when washing also should be the ones to report it to the management.

The location of our room was towards the back, so we didn't experience any noise, but truly, if noise bothers you, don't choose a hotel in Temple bar. And that's what I'll say on that subject. That the hotel provided ear plugs amongst the amenities in the bathroom was also a nice touch. It wasn't particularly warm in Dublin when we stayed there, so the lack of aircon didn't bother us except for one night were I had to open a window. So get a room with aircon if that's a must for you. The hotel lighting is quite dark at nighttime, and the elevator has a weird funky blue light and nothing else, which makes it really hard finding the right button to press, but quite charming in its own way.

All in all we had a fantastic stay, and would definitely return if ever in Dublin again without kids. But can't give it a five star review as it needs to work on the smaller details to fully make it a fantastic hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back seems more quiet, but again, if quiet is a must, don't choose a hotel in T...

Just stayed in the penthouse suite for 1 night as a suprise from my boyfriend who decided to propose on the terrace after making a surprise trip to Dublin! The hotel staff went above and beyond to help him arrange the surprise and did whatever possible to make it an incredible stay for us, would highly recommend!

Hi and Hello, Cheals Wow!! Thank you so much for the amazing feedback. Its great to know that we made your stay really memorable and you enjoyed your visit to The Morgan.

To be honest we only helped on the little things and it was your Fiancee that did all the hard work. We have witnessed a fair few proposals here at the Morgan but I can't remember one that more work was put into and every detail was checked and double checked.
I truly hope that you both have an incredible life together and if his efforts on this night are anything to go by... then you have a good one there!!!

Continued happines to both of you.

This is a modern hotel in a great location. The location in the Temple Bar can be noisy on weekends as it is a great drinking locale with many fine pubs. Our room did not have AC, it was also small but very stylish. The staff was great and there was plenty to do just feet from the front door.

Stayed here on Valentine's Day this year. I love the funky vibe in this hotel! Decor throughout the hotel is so cool and unique, unlike any other hotel in Dublin. You will find really quirky pieces of furniture all over the hotel.

Our room was fabulous and again, very modern and funky.

The staff are really friendly and helpful.

Location is perfect for exploring Dublin as this hotel is right in the middle of temple bar and within walking distance to all areas of Dublin city.

I really enjoyed the entertainment in the bar too. It was live saxophone/bongos players with house music. I think this is on a lot of Friday nights, definitely worth a visit. Only downside was the price of the drinks! Soooo expensive but it's like that in a lot of places in temple bar. Quality of cocktails was not great either.

But overall, a really cool hotel that will particularly appeal to younger clientele who want to party or chill in a really unique environment.

We got the opportunity to stay in the Morgan for a second time. We checked in on Friday 25th July for two nights. Check in was stress free as normal and the hotel agreed to allocate us a room with air conditioning upon request with no issues. Our stay was fantastic. Breakfast was top class and plenty of everything, with a great fruit selection! We ordered room service and this was fast, but did disappoint a little as all we wanted was sandwiches but they were unable to assist. Apart from this I would definitely rate this hotel. It's that good we have already booked again for October :)

We will be trying out several new ideas and menu options in the coming weeks like our delicious belgian waffles with maple syrup and fresh fruit, so do keep an eye out for them in October when you come back to visit. Ask for me at the desk and I'll treat you to one of our signature cocktails made specially for you.
Until then, have a great summer and be well.

Yes Temple Bar is a tourist district with expensive prices...
but the morgan was well appointed and a great value for our three night stay.
Room was huge. bed comfy
Location was quiet, we faced the back alley which could be noisy as we had the windows open, but keep in mind you are in the middle of a major city.
You can walk to all major attractions from hear just about.
Staff were amazing. - helpful and always cheerful
our room looked a bit worn - everything worked, but it will need freshening up in a year or so, but this did not detract from the experience
wifi was great.
there is a tesco express across the road, which we used to grab some snacks and drinks from

We stayed at The Morgan on July 3-5 on the last leg of our Ireland vacation. We asked for 2 adjoining rooms, but there were none available so we were upgraded to the Penthouse Suite. The location was great, right in the middle of Temple Bar and walking distance to Trinity College. There were a lot of activities on the street, but the noise never made it up to our room. The staff was extremely helpful, and they even comped the parking charge for the garage across the street.

My only recommendation would be don't try to check in between 4:00 - 7:00 on weekdays unless you know the City well. Rush hour traffic is horrendous, and several of the streets required to get to Temple Bar are restricted to busses only. I drove around in circles for 45 minutes until the roads reopened.

You got to love that second floor, roof top garden. You so right about all the attractions and that's what's so great about staying in a city centre hotel... everything is at your finger tips.
I know you had an opportunity to have a Pints or even a couple of cocktails on your visit, the weather was perfect fo it.
