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.

A great hotel- highly recommended!

This was the second time we have stayed here and again it did not disappoint. The rooms are lovely and look like they should be in a much more expensive hotel, as do the other amenities. It's great to have a pub onsite but there are also plenty of other options nearby (within 5-10 mins walk), most of which are much cheaper . This hotel benefits from being close enough to the city centre to allow you to go out and about easily and safely throughout the day and night (either by the local DART train service or by 20 mins walk with many drinks stops en-route!) But far enough away to be in quiter surroundings. We also found ithe location perfect for attending events at the RDS or Aviva Stadium, as both are very close-by. All in all, we love this hotel, the only downside being the price of breakfast, and know that we will back very soon!

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.

Nice and Comfortable

The staff are pleasant, helpful and informative. Location - not far from city, the bus fare is only 2.15euro. The hotel provides a lot of car parks but unfortunately guests have to pay for it (not complimentary for guests). Overall our stay was magnificent and we definitely will stay here again if we come to Dublin.

Fabulous city break

Having booked the hotel and flight via the internet and paid very cheap price we weren't expecting the hotel to be so grand! The entrance is luxurious, the reception staff very helpful and the rooms very comfortable. Everything was kept very clean, and the maid service was very good. We booked breakfast one morning and it was very good value. The on site bar was very well used and had a great atmosphere. We took the bus into town every day from just outside the hotel. After a day walking around Dublin, we usually took a taxi back and every taxi driver told us that we were in the posh part of town! The neighbourhood had beautiful buildings and one evening we walked to a local pub, which was excellent and had jazz music playing on Sunday tea time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, whether couples, or families!

Fantastic price for good location

I booked this hotel for the location. It is close to the city centre also, costing less than €10 in a taxi. The aircoach stop is right outside the hotel. There is a shop also located in the hotel which was unexpected but great. The only confusing point is that the Ballsbridge Inn and Ballsbridge Towers are actually the one building!!!

Great hotel just down the road from Aviva stadium. Massive bar area and lots of screens if you don't have a ticket. Clean lobby area and secure access to rooms. Only stayed the one night but just what was needed.
