4 Star Hotel with a budget price

Bewleys Ballsbridge is a GEM. Nestled in the same neighborhood as Embassy Residences, a walk in any direction will provide gorgeous examples of Estate Living. Hotel staff readily changed our room when the noise from Thomas Pryor Hall evening events left us sleepless two nights in a row. Food was excellent, menu varied, portions very adequate, and if necessary, you could carry a tray to your room (room service not provided). Wished there had been live Irish music in the hotel bar.

Great hotel in a great location.

The hotel was great from check-in to departure with plenty of on-site parking. Located about 1.5 miles from Dublin city center with city buses running every 10 minutes. Close to US Embassy, Trinity College (see the Book of Kell's), Jamison distillery as well as Guiness and hundreds of pubs, restaurants, etc. Room was very comfortable, with comfortable beds and pillows. The only thing missing from the room were bath cloths, shampoo and conditioner !!! Hotel restaurant and bar were larger than expected. Food was very good and compared to Dublin prices, was priced right. Definitely would stay here again.

Good, quiet hotel in Dublin, Ireland

The Bewleys hotel has an excellent location, unless you want to be in the middle of the Temple Bar district. The bus from the airport stops directly in front of it. It is a 5 minute walk to the DART train station which goes into the city center of Dublin. The train ride is about a 10 minutes. From the Tara Street station we walked all around the city center. From the Connolly station we caught the light rail to the Guinness storehouse. The hotel is next to the British embassy and a block away from the US embassy, so it is in a very good neighborhood. My daughter and I ran two different routes- one to the Dublin Bay and the other around the Herbert Park. You can walk to St Stevens Park, but that will take at least 30 minutes. The hotel staff was very helpful with providing directions and other information about getting around.

Bewley's Hotel Ballsbridge Ireland

The accomodations were just great. The room was clean and well kept, as was the entire establishment. The hotel pub was a great place to watch a football match or just sit back and relax a little. (I did both and enjoyed both.) As far as location, I couldn't imagine a more prime spot t ostay. I wasn't more than 15 minutes away from anything. The only complaint that I had (and it might sound ridiculous) is that the cleaning staff was overzealous. Despite my "Do Not Disturb" door hanger and my repeated requests for privacy, the cleaning staff refused to be ignored. One day a staff member walked into my room, even as I was calling out for him to stop, to find me just out of the shower and not exactly ready for guests. It bothered me quite a bit. Other than that, an outstanding place. One other thing, the hotel is right across the street from the football stadium, so check to make sure there are no matches. Imagine being next door to Staples Center on a Laker's game night.

out of the way but clean

out of the way for sightseeing in Dublin but right on the bus line for aircoach which goes to the airport. absolutely request a quiet room away from the glass recycling which was right outside our room at 2 AM! (other reviewers had written this and we forgot)

Great location, nice rooms, fair price

The outside of the hotel was gorgeous and was only a few blocks from the Sandymount DART station, which was really convenient. The room themselves were good, not great, but good. Overall, I was pleased with the hotel for the price we paid.

Great time in Dublin

Bewley's did a great job hosting us during our 4 day stay in Dublin. Great clean rooms, and excellent access to downtown via the busses and DART. Handy, excellent home away from home.

The DART day trip ticket of apx. 6 euros ea. was a great deal. We visited seaside towns north and south of Dublin for a whole day, from the local station. Great unsung amenity.
