“a little gem in the city”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

went to the city for a show. the pre show menu was lovely. everyone was very friendly. the room was small but it had everything I needed. breakfast was a treat and the service was silver, the breakfast room was very charming. The bar service was also excellent. The hotel's location is ideal,especially with the luas outside the door.

We drove to the hotel and were concerned about parking- we didn't need to be! They valet parked our car for free! The hotel already had a baby cot set up for us in our room, and the room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was also very nice in their charming historic dining room. The best part of all was the location- central Dublin! We were on the top (5th) floor, and noise was not a problem at all for us. I was very happy with the hotel and would gladly stay there again.

Room Tip: We were on the fifth floor (with elevator) and it was very quiet with views overlooking the rooftops...

Wynn's will never suit everyone, but I always stay there when possible during my business trips to Dublin. Its location is excellent, close to the Aercoach stop in O'Connell Street, within walking distance of Connolly station and with the LUAS stop right outside. The turnover of staff is extremely low for the hotel world, and they are universally helpful. The bar is always lively and one can either eat there or have a very reasonable meal (for Central Dublin) in the restaurant. The lift is slow (but immaculately polished), so is the service of cooked breakfast, but those are small sacrifices for everything else that the hotel offers. I'm just sorry that Wynn's was fully booked when I had to plan next week's trip to Dublin.

Booked this after having read some reviews on Trip Advisor, all of which were very positive. I concur. If you want a cookie-cutter, McDonald's (Holiday Inn?) style hotel experience, don't stay here. However, if you want a quaint, authentically Dublin stay, choose Wynn's. It is like a place out of time, showing its age and filled with an assortment of odd and memorable characters, both staff and guests. Historic as Dublin itself (established 1845). Great location in the center of town (just north of the River Liffy off O'Connell Street), a five minute walk from the AirLink shuttle to and from the airport. Good value too, and a really nice breakfast with a cross between self-service (cold things) and table service (hot breakfast). Sure, the elevator is slow and the carpets are thin, but when we needed a bulb changed in the room, it was done cheerfully and before we could even turn around. Maybe the best endorsement - it was completely sold out the three days we were there.

Room Tip: I read many recommendations that front rooms can be loud with street noises - we had one and it was...

We stayed at the Wynn's the first 2 nights of our recent trip to Ireland. The location really couldn't be better. The AirCoach from Dublin airport drops you right on O'Connel St. a block or 2 away from the hotel. Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived there at 1PM, but the front desk attendant was helpful and held onto our bags while we walked around the town for a while.

The hotel is very convenient to O'Connel St, Green HOHO bus, Temple Bar, Trinity College, and all of city center really. I didn't know that breakfast was included with our room, so that was a nice surprise. It was one of the best breakfasts that I had the whole trip, and the eggs benedict were great.

The hotel is a little bit dated, but charming. The room was on the small side, but there were window benches which provided room to lay out our bags. The bed was comfortable, but like others have said it can be a bit noisy if you are on the front side of the hotel. It wasn't a big issue for us though. Overall, I would definitely recommend the Wynn's Hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the hotel would be quieter.

Very olde worlde charme Hotel right in the centre of Dublin.

Excellent service and staff are so helpful.We had a room on the 5th floor at the front of the Hotel. It's on a busy road and very noisy ALL the time, as in 24 hours, garbage trucks, street cleaners and the tram which is right outside the front door. The noises didn't bother me, but if you were a light sleeper they might.

Breakfast was excellent. We never ate there for any other meals so cannot comment on those.

The tram line is right in front of the Hotel, so there is no drop off access in front of the Hotel, you have to cross the road, which is no problem.

I loved the Hotel, it has an old world charm which I liked. I am in my 50's and I think I was the youngest person at the front bar when we went down for a drink lol

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, the front of the hotel is not for you

The rooms are small no air con
But It's a nice hotel right in the heart of town. The breakfast is good and there is a good pub across the road.
The lifts are slow, we were at the back of the hotel so noise was not a problem. But you are next to the tram System so I don't know what the other rooms are like.
