“Nice base camp, rooms a little tired”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

This hotel is in a very convenient location - airport shuttle stops right around the corner, and Luas station is right outside. Staff was very friendly, but the rooms were a little more dated than what I was expecting. Our bathroom was clearly recently renovated, which actually made the rest of the room feel a little drab. Staff was very friendly. It was more of a value play for us -- convenient location in the heart of Dublin that wasn't too expensive or in the middle of Temple Bar.

A group of us stayed at Wynn's while attending a conference. We had rooms on various floors and of various sizes, and everyone seemed content. The street is less busy than many, being away from the main night-life locations. There is a comfortable hotel bar, with both draft beer and Guinness available. I had a double room which was fine as a single but would have been cramped with two occupants. The thick duvet and heavy coverlet were much too hot for June - a folded sheet was enough. The bathroom was small but well fitted, with an excellent shower. Room 246 faces on to the main stairwell, so there is little natural light and the air conditioning machines outside the window work all night. However, after the first night I was too tired with the amount of walking we'd done to notice the noise. The hotel advises arriving early for breakfast to avoid later crowding and delays. We ate at 7.30 and had excellent swift service. There is plenty of choice, both hot and cold dishes, of a good standard. The staff were very helpful in getting us taxis to the airport and storing our luggage on the last day before our evening departure. The room charge was quite high, but compares favourably with other Dublin hotels. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Check whether rooms face the street or inside. Note other comments about air-conditioning units.

The hotel is located close to major sites, and bus station / train station. The hotel itself is old fashioned, rooms a little dated, but fine for just 1 or 2 nights, can be noisy so take earplugs, breakfast was lovely, chohce of full Irish breakfast, or things like grilled goats cheese on toast, plus all the usual cereals.

The hotel is an imposing building conveniently located just off O’Connell Street and that is its highlight.
You need to park illegally to be able to unload your car in a loading bay to enable to check in the hotel after running across the tram lines. In fairness the bell hop is quickly out of the hotel and parks your car somewhere secure. The receptionist who dealt with my checking -in had a poor command of the spoken English language and her manner was offhand. I ended up in room 382 which is a dark and dingy box room with a double bed that meant you couldn’t walk round the room but had to sidle round. There was a single wardrobe and a desk with a chair with not enough room to use, additionally no extra cupboard space to put clothes. The bathroom was reasonably well appointed so was OK. The really big problem with the assigned room other than lack of space was it’s lack of natural light due to a large adjacent building 3 or 4M away from the bedroom wall that shaded the majority of natural light which necessitated having the electric light on in the room all hours. There was also a large and noisy extraction fan below the window running continuously that pumped up air extracted from a kitchen so the room smelt of extraneous cooking smells even with the window shut. It's continuous droning noise was also unacceptable.
After complaining the under manager / duty manager he kindly assigned me another room that was better but still slightly affected by the extraction fan noise and food smells but it wasn't worth another complaint. The bathroom had just been recently re-decorated since there was masking tape still on the joint between tiles and painted surfaces. It also had an unusual colour mix of porcelain and the fittings were a mix of chrome, gold tint and worn gold tint. The shower performance is best left unsaid.
For an evening meal the restaurant managed to stew my meal vegetables to a tasteless mess and one cooked breakfast was hot and the next day it was lukewarm. It was good that there were restaurants close by that knew how to cook and serve quality food.
With the exception of a couple of staff members service in general was sub-standard.
All in all, the place is abysmal and needs complete renovation and re-staffing with people who understand customer service..
Dublin itself has plenty to occupy a tourist from historical buildings, parks, museums, castle (currently shut), Guinness storehouse, Jamesons ‘distillery etc so there is plenty to do over a couple of days if you like walking around so you cannot get bored. A couple of good bars for some nightlife are around even for old folks like me.
About 40 km from Dublin is a quaint and pretty town called Trim with its star attraction a lovely castle and walks close by so it is worth a visit. If you like walking then the evocative Hills of Tara are close by that is part of Ireland’s
folk law and history

Room Tip: Avoid Room No 382 like the plague

I hiked portions of the Kerry Way and then visited Dublin. The tour company, Go Visit Ireland, booked Wynn's for me, so I really don't know whether my room was good value or not. But the hotel staff were very pleasant, the dining room breakfasts quite posh, the bar full of elderly folks (like me) and fun to watch, the Guinness very good, and the location, well, perfect. You're just steps from O'Connell Street, close to the Liffey, and the Luas red line stops right in front of the hotel. I chatted with one guest whose room faced the street, and she barely got a minute of sleep because of the noise. I had a small but perfectly fine room (number 496) that opened to an interior light shaft, and I only heard gulls and an occasional siren. If this says anything, I'd stay at Wynn's again.

We got an excellent price for this hotel by booking online and paying in advance. Not only that, the quality of the room was excellent. Spacious bathroom with spa, fluffy huge towells and full bathroom toileteries. We were in the James Joyce room. Most of this historic hotel has been refurbished and the grand dining room is something to behold. There is also a comfortable bar serving food.
We had to leave early the next day, but a continental breakfast was ready for us at the time we requested. The hotel is well located north of the Liffey, close to where we dropped our hire car off and a convenient taxi drive to/from the ferry. You can walk to most attractions in the centre of Dublin. Would definitely stay there again. Great location and value.

Room Tip: We were towards the back and had a very quiet night

This hotel is excellent. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and modern, and the location is perfect. Within walking distance to most Dublin attractions. I booked the bed and breakfast option and was glad I did. The irish breakfast was EXCELLENT!!! My room was adequate for 2 people sizewise, and the bed was great!! I will stay there again when I go to Dublin.

Room Tip: The south rooms are better as far as street noise goes.
