Dining

Breakfast
Breakfast is in Raglans Restaurant. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to the experts. You can enjoy yours in the tranquil ambience of Raglans. Choose between a large continental selection of freshly baked rolls, pastries, fruit, cereals and freshly squeezed juices or if you would prefer something more substantial, help yourself to our full Irish Breakfast buffet. Breakfast is served daily from 7am to 10:30am.
Bar
The Dubliner Pub Established in 1963, the Dubliner Pub has built a reputation for authentic Irish pub grub and craic that draws in many eclectic locals, so you'll be sure to experience first hand the warmth and vitality that is synonymous with any visit to our fair city. With traditional music at the weekends and big screens for all the big games, the Dubliner is the place to enjoy the craic and lively banter into the early hours of the morning.
Barber Shop
In town for an important interview or just want to impress the ladies, then pop along to Gerrard's Barber Shop just inside the door of the Ballsbridge Hotel. Established in 1972 and gaining in reputation since, you can treat yourself to a shave or a new look from a European Barber Championship gold medal winner.

One of the worst experiences ever

This hotel was awful. The staff was too busy to help and was condescending when asked a question. I had to change rooms because the first one was just disgusting. The second one was worse. Mold on the bathroom ceiling, peeling wallpaper, dirty carpets, running toilets, cigarette burns in the curtains, old & chipped furniture, antique televisions. Worst experience ever. Part of the hotel in under renovation, but not my rooms.

IM BOOKING AGAIN!!!

I absolutely LOVED The Ballsbridge Hotel. Not only was it conveniently located to everything I wanted, but the Hotel staff were very accomodating! My room was absolutely huge! The bed was absolutely comfortable! It's in a very safe area so I didnt mind coming back to the Hotel at late hours. You are in walking distance to alot of eateries and shops, if you want to walk up to Grafton Street. It's right across from the Bank and most of the Embassies. They also have a pay computers if you forgot any of your electronics, like I did. Everything was clean, and they never came in your room when you had the "No Attention Needed" sign hanging. The Bathroom was an absolute delite, with a deep tub perfect for a nice relaxing bath.

Hotel Closed!!!

My reservation for D4 Ballsbridge Inn Hotel was made a couple weeks in advance. My friend made her reservation more than a month in advance and when we arrived, we were met at the door and advised the hotel was "closed for remodeling" and our reservations had been switched to D4 Berkeley--"just go around the back of this hotel, across the parking lot, through a wrought iron fence...." I truly thought the man was joking! When I found the front desk of the Berkeley, they insisted that it was "the same hotel" and therefore didn't feel the need to notify guests of the switch. They also mentioned that the Berkeley is a 5Star hotel and the D4 Inn was a 4Star--I assume they thought we should be grateful for the 'upgrade'....The Berkeley may have been a 5Star hotel a few years ago, but it needs some serious renovations to qualify for that now! Not only was the D4 Inn closed, but its restaurant was closed, its pub was closed and the D4 Store was closed leaving the Berkeley with one restaurant. The Air Coach stop and the city bus stop is right outside the door of the D4 Inn and the RDS, (where we were attending the needlework show), is a short walk or a quick bus ride down the street. The Berkeley was just that much further to everything and we were disappointed with the switch and the fact that we were not notified of the switch. The Berkeley breakfast was great and the hotel staff was wonderful, but everyone had been instructed to say "this is the same hotel" (i.e. D4) and the "other building was closed for remodeling" turns out, the other hotel, pub, D4 Store had been FLOODED with the recent storm that had raged through Dublin a few weeks earlier! now why couldn't they have said that and why couldn't they have notified their guests?? I would have been perfectly happy with the switch if I had known about it in advance, but to find out after an eight-hour flight, on top of jet lag, it was more than a little aggravating!! and they charged for WiFi, which was very inconvenient :)
