Good value , good location

Great location, easy access to airport coach, DART train and bus. No need to rent a car. Good restaurant and bar. Comfortable room and beds. New flat screen TVs since last visit. Lighting could be better in rooms but they are all on the save energy drive. Would be great if they had a gym , but when the weather cooperates you can have a nice run along the sea front overlooking Dublin Bay.

Close to almost nothing

A really nice hotel in a safe area, but not convenient to really anything. The AirCoach no longer stops by it. A bus does run just outside the main gates, but is only reliable after 9am and before 10pm, costs 2.15 euro one way, and takes about 15 minutes to get to downtown Dublin. If you have a car of your own, then I would absolutely recommend this hotel as it is very clean, comfortable, with friendly staff.

A great base for exploring Dublin

The hotel is located in a nice upper class area of town, only one block from the US embassy. The room was comfortable and quiet and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The city bus was at the door and for 1.15 Euros you were in town center in 15 Min. The bus from the airport doesn't stop here any more, drag your suitcases for 25 min to get to the hotel. Taxi is 24 Euros compared to the bus at 18 Euros for two from the airport, we took it back and also saved 20 min. The food at the restaurant was OK but frozen french fries with a so so main course seasoned with salt and no veg or green salad for 25 E was not worth it. Eat elsewhere for a nice dinner at a reasonable price and something more interesting. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again on our next trip to Dublin.

Nice hotel in beautiful Ballsbridge

Nice hotel in beautiful Ballsbridge neighborhood...good value for money, although anything else is an extra cost, local phone calls, internet on single computer by hotel desk, etc....which may irk some travelers....however, i'd stay again b/c the area is totally safe, plan on using transit as the hotel is a bit from the city center, probably not a good bet if you are intent on nightlife in dublin, best for families....

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.
