In the heart of Dublin!

After a raucous stay in the Temple Bar area, my husband and I chose the Brooks for our last two nights in Dublin. What a place. Location is wonderful, staff is knowledgeable and the rooms are so comfortable! We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Dublin.

Convenient location

Brooks hotel was within walking distance of the main attractions in Dublin's City Center. The rooms were clean, but nothing special. The price seemed high for the quality of the rooms.

Lovely hotel in the middle of everything

We had a lovely time at the Brooks Hotel, just a few blocks south of the Liffey in the middle of everything. Everyone on the staff couldn't be nicer, from the folks at the desk, to the waiters, to the bartender who provided advice in our selection of Irish whiskeys. The location is a quiet street, but only a couple blocks from the Temple Bar rowdiness. The food was also excellent, both at the hotel restaurant and the sumptuous breakfasts each morning.

Great Experience except Hot Water not always available

We slept late on two occasions (past 9 AM) and found that the hot water was all gone. When I complained, the staff responded immediately and said that one of the boilers had gone down overnight and that I would have hot water soon. Two hours later around 11:00 it was warm but not hot. The staff advised me that I was the only customer who had complained about the water. It is worthy to note that whenever I got up at 2:00 AM there was so much hot water available that it was not possible to get cool water from the tap! Other than the problem with hot water, our stay was excellent. The staff were most attentive, friendly, helpful and courteous. Unless I am assured that the water temperature can be better regulated, I would not return to this hotel. I would not recommend it to anyone without the caveat about hot water.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Most attractions are a short walk away. All of our meals were of good quality. We took two one-day excursions via Paddywagon tours and thoroughly enjoyed them. The drivers on our tours were well equipped to expain the Irish culture and local attractions.

A Great Experience

We stayed at the Brooks Hotel for 9 nights in June. All our expectations were exceeded. The staff was extraordinarily helpful in meeting our every need. Numerous restaurant choices are within 5 minutes walk. Buses for daytrips leave from the Dublin visitor center that is only 2 blocks away. We never tired of the wide number of breakfast offerings (for only 10 Euros per person!). Our room was large and clean. If you only want all the basics done right, the Brooks is a great choice.

Don't miss the "mezze" offering at the Cedar Tree, a Lebanese restaurant about 3 blocks away. You get 14 tapas-sized items for $19 per person. Fantastic!

First trip to Ireland

We stayed at the Brook's Hotel twice during an 8 day visit to Ireland. This is a lovely hotel, very homey, centerally located, wonderful breakfast, and the staff bent over backwards for us. Whether it was calling a cab, handling our luggage, mapping out various " must sees" in Dublin, and even helping us with a medical problem all without extra cost or expectation of it. It was our favorite Hotel in Dublin and we will, for sure, be back.

Brooks Hotel

Great location! Close to everything of importance yet not too loud at night. I was on the sixth floor and had a view of Dublin Castle. Excellent staff. The concierge, was of great help. He obtained medical help for an ill travelling companion. The only draw back was that the room was small. I would stay here again.

Perfect Location

You couldn't ask for a better location. Close enough to Temple Bar area to stumble back after a night of partying yet far enough to escape the noise and get a good nights sleep. Service at the hotel was great. The staff knew us by name by the second day and were very helpful in setting up tours and activities. Restaurants and bars around the hotel were excellent as well.
