Glaze Bistro
To start the day off correctly why not enjoy a full Irish breakfast or healthy continental breakfast in the Glaze Bistro.If you require something lighter enjoy a freshly made sandwich or wrap made to order from the Sandwich Bar in the Glaze Bistro. For dinner you can relax and dine with imaginative dishes by evening glimmer and gaze through the 'Glaze' at the passing canal waters from the Glaze Bistro.
Terrace Bar
Morning coffee is served in the Terrace Bar. If you are looking for variety at lunchtime, enjoy the great selection from the Carvery Lunch Menu in the Terrace Bar.

Great value and convenience

The Dublin Mespil, while not central to the Dublin Dart, is within a 10 minute wal which gets you to all the locations you will want to visit while in Dublin. The hotel offers a very good restaurant and pub, and the breakfast buffet is well worth the investment. The hotel is clean and efficient - although I do wish it has some sort of gym facility. The hotel staff could not be nicer. Since the Mespil is in a business district, there are a number of dining options near by - pubs, Italian, sit-down, take away, etc. Located right on the Grand Canal, the Mespil offers a good spot to relax and visit Dublin without all of the noise and congestion of being in the center of action.

Mespil is a 10 minute walk from the Grand Canal Dart line. This will give you access to all Dublin shopping, dining, and tourist locations.

Awesome

I had an awesome time in Dublin and the Mespil was a great location for me. Everywhere I wanted to go, in Dublin, was only a short walk from the hotel. I would stay there again.

Awesome Quality, Tremendous Value

Fantastic modern Hotel on the south end of the city. The neighborhood is safe and very clean, there is a Starbucks right next door and a fantastic Italian restaurant around the corner. A 10 to 15 minute walk to the center of Dublin and most tourist areas. The Mespil is located close to major highways if driving around Ireland is on your agenda. My wife and I went to see a concert at RDS Arena which was about a 10 minute walk through a great neighborhood - The Mespil is very clean, staff is very friendly and helpful, I would stay here again. Free parking if you can get into the lot, otherwise there is easy to find street parking nearby.

Stunning hotel

A few of us girl stayed here over the weekend as we was celebrating a birthday! The hotel was lovely, all the staff were very attentive and the rooms were spotless! We really wasn't expecting this as we got a really good deal so thought it would be a standard hotel, it was far from standard. Very chilled out atmosphere and never had problem with noise.

great place to stay

It is a great hotel and is very clean and tidy. The room was spacious and has tv, drink facilities, fridge which we filled with milk, booze and some snacks. Not a place to go for a bar atmosphere though on site.not noisy and a nice stay

Visit to Dublin

This is my third stay at this hotel in less than two years. I stay there when visiting Dublin. I find the location excellent for accessing Dublin City Centre. The staff are courteous and friendly without being intrusive. It meets my expectations any time I stay there and I would recommend this hotel to other visitors.

Nice place in a convenient location. walking distance to many points of interest. The hotel buffet is a little bland and spendy, but plenty of affordable options nearby.

A step off the beaten path

Away from the madding crowds this hotel was very pleasant. Front desk was very supportive through the "Volcano Ash Crisis".

STAY HERE

We loved this hotel, from check in to check out, everything was great. We arrived early (5am) on a cold, rainy Dublin morning and the staff was super friendly about giving us our room. (Granted it was the off season, but still nice) The hotel itself is very well kept and the rooms are nice sized and very clean. We liked the fact that we could walk to Temple bar area or Stephens green but then return to our quieter area at night. Not that the area is dead. There are some great pubs and coffee spots within a block. i only wish we could go back in the summer to take a stroll along the canal right in front of the hotel. If you need a budget friendly hotel in Dublin, you can't beat this spot.

Don't buy a Map of Dublin! The hotel gives you a great tourist map that shows you where everything you need is located.
