Beautiful couple trip

The building is very beautiful, it looks like a castle. The rooms are clean and they provide a kettle if you would like to make some tea or coffee. Near the hotel there are some beautiful pubs to have a drink without going to the city center. The cost of a ride on cab to the city center is about 10€.

BEWLEYS BALLSBRIDGE INN

Rooms were nice, but beds only had a quilt/coverlet with NO top sheet or other blankets. I think the staff could have been more informative about finding where things were that we needed to purchase, like an adaptor.

Get a pass for the Hop On, Hop Off bus for 3 days. You can do most of your sightseeing of Dublin with that pass. Admission to attractions are extra.

Bewleys Hotel Ballsbridge, Dublin, IE

This was our first trip to Ireland. The hotel is grand, has a restaurant and a bar with live sports on TV downstairs. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel and the routes runs directly into town. We also walked into town from here, a 30 minute walk. The hotel has Wi-Fi everywhere. The breakfast was good, but expensive at 13 Euro; you can also opt for the Continental breakfast if you like eating lightly. The rooms were quiet, roomy, and well serviced by the staff. No refrigerator. We would stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Go to the bus office on (59) O'Connell Street and ask for a route map and advice on area attractions. They will give you a map; you can also buy the multi-day bus pass here which is a deal if you plan on getting on and off the bus at least three times.

Beautiful facility

Spent most of our days in Dublin, so the location close to the DART Sandymount station was very useful. Food in the Brassiere was fantastic and moderately priced. Service was very good. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Six of us arrived early , very cold, wet, and tired. We were graciously given early access to our rooms.

Bewleys Hotel Ballsbridge

Bewleys Ballsbridge was perfectly located for what we needed to do. The restaurant was excellent and the wait staff extremely nice. The front dest personnel were great. Our flight home was cancelled after we had checked out but they got us the same room and we were in it by 8:00. They gave us a great rate, also.
