I was thrilled when my husband surprised me with a four night stay at the Gresham Hotel for our honeymoon in Dublin. It is an impressive building with the opulence and charm of a bygone age, steeped in history. The receptionists and concierges were welcoming, helpful and efficient. Our bedroom and bathroom (both overlooking O'Connell Street!) were spacious and comfortable, with an excellent standard of housekeeping maintained throughout our stay. The hotel is in a perfect location as it is on the airport and open top bus routes and within easy walking distance of the delights of Dublin...It is a pity, however, that such a traditional hotel doesn't offer dinner in a more formal dining room, as the bistro-style dining area seems at odds with the general ambiance of the place. The 'tired' soft furnishings in the bar and lounge areas are in desperate need of some tlc to do the grand rooms that they occupy justice... to end on a positive, I can highly recommend the champagne afternoon tea!
