Great hotel apart from the bar/restaurant

Hotel itself and the rooms are great but avoid the bar/restaurant which is poor and eat in Dublin

Modern vibe, old fashioned welcome.

Really enjoyed two nights in The Gibson at start of February. Check in slick. Bar food was good and service exemplary. Room very comfortable with air con, usual tea and coffee available, iron, ironing board and a massive shower cubicle. A nice touch was the opportunity to make your own posey of floating flowers to take to your room. LUAS tram terminus at the front door is a bonus to get into city centre.

The Gibson

New hotel just outside the O2 in Dublin. Easily reached by Luas tram - Luas stops directly outside hotel at The Point stop on the red line making it a really handy short trip from city centre. Nice hotel, very helpful staff, spotless rooms. Great bar area with balcony. Relaxation area not yet open so couldn't make use of this facility. Breakfast charged at €15 for Full Irish and €10 for Continental. One slight downside was that the hotel was quiet - not many people staying there, so lacked a bit of atmosphere but this is probably because it has only been open for one month. Other than that - top marks. Fab location if you are attending a concert at the O2 and because it is so handy to city centre on the Luas line, I will definitely be staying here again.

Good introductory offer

Great hotel, got a twin room when booked a double but let it be as they seemed busy. Shower in room was fantastic! Paid €87 for the room as an introductory offer for the first month they were open, wouldn't pay anymore to stay though. Overnight parking is €14!! Barman was quite unfriendly left us waiting at the bar only to serve people who clearly arrived at the bar after us and there was no staff on the residents bar. Overall good hotel very comfortable beds.

Ideal venue for concerts

I really liked the hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, liked the decor modern but warm feeling. Hotel provided free shuttle bus to the concert at Croke Park which was really good. Overall I would love to go back to the Gibson for a weekend or midweek break

Use the Luas ( tram) which is right beside the hotel entrance. This can take you right up to the city centre to all the shops and bus tours

Convenient, well run, "Green" hotel

Spent 11 nights at The Gibson while visiting our daughter during her summer internship in Dublin. If this hotel is typical of new hotel construction in Europe, then they are ahead of the USA in environmentally sustainable hotel building practices. Perfect location at The Point Depot for taking the affordable light rail tram (Luas) into the center of Dublin and first-stop round trip bus transportation from Dublin Airport (via AirCoach--purchase online in advance). The standard room is a good size, with excellent foam top mattress, nice clean duvet with covering that is changed for each new guest, and an amazing shower. The frosted glass window between the bedroom and shower is to allow natural light into an otherwise windowless bathroom. We were there a day before we discovered a second built-in closet (next to the hall door) for additional hanging clothes that also contained a digital safe for valuables. Ask for a room price plan that includes the full Irish breakfast buffet. More items than one could want at a 15 Euro cost per person--if not included in the plan.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Dublin's weather is cool and wet most of the year so pack accordingly. Women in particular tend to dress-up at night, but often carry a bag with practical shoes for walking on wet cobblestone streets. Enjoy a pint at The Temple Bar, hit Dicey's Garden on Tuesday nights for 2-euro drinks and food, shop for a hand-loomed tweed jacket on Nassau Street. Keep a smile on your face and explore one of the coolest cities on the planet.

Pretty good, would stay again.

I got a very good flight and hotel deal. I chose the Gibson because of favourable reviews higher, first stop on airport express buses and Luas tram terminal outside the hotel taking you fast to and form city centre till well after midnight. Hotel met all expectations. It is very stylish but this is not (as in some other hotels) at the expense of practicality. Room was spacious and comfortable and very quiet, with good blackout curtains - we slept well. It opened on to a 3rd floor open courtyard. Plenty of storage space, good lighting. Free wifi worked well. Toiletries nice, basic tea and coffee provided (no biscuits or snacks). There were a few minor points that could improve and as a result I can't quite give a 5 though it would get at least 4.5: - In the bedroom the information booklets are in a sunken 'drawer' with a glass lid to access. The glass lid is heavy and painful when it falls on your hand, as I discovered. The lid in our room did not stay open even when lifted fully. - The information booklet is full of items for which they invite you to call 'guest relations'. We never saw anyone on the 'guest relations desk and the extension was answered, after a very long time, by a busy receptionist. The information she gave us was actually wrong in several ways. For example 'Catch the Luas to O'Connell Street' - there is no stop called O'Connell Street, you need to alight at the Abbey Street stop to get to O'Connell Street. Visitors might not know that. - There was a frosted glass panel between the bedroom and bathroom. This means that if the bathroom light is put on (essential to use a windowless room), the light will shine into the bedroom and may disturb anyone trying to sleep. - The tap water really didn't taste that good. A complimentary bottle in the room marked 'sparkling' (or 'carbonated') turned out to be filled with tap water - why bother?

Walk along the tram lines and you will come to some small shops and about 10 minutes away a nice looking cafe where you could have a cheaper or lighter breakfast than the Gibson's, I think it is at the start of Mayor Street
