Flying visit to Dublin for just one night and plumped for the Gresham due to it's central location. A beautiful hotel that has retained an ambience of a long history notwithstanding an extensive revamp with a spacious lobby and great front office welcome. The writers lounge is a joy - comfortable with an air of sophistication from another, gentler era. I was in a rear room so cannot comment on whether street noise from the busy thoroughfare of Upper O'Connell Street may be an issue - however, handy for grabbing a taxi. You must do Guiness (storehouse) and Kilmainham Gaol as a minimum. The full Irish breakfast cannot be faulted. The rooms are smart, beds extremely comfortable and have all the usual comforts - wifi, tea/coffee making (it's kept in the bottom drawer of the large desk for the person who missed it!). I shall book the Gresham again on my next visit to the fine city of Dublin.
