Awful experience

I booked this hotel last minute for friends as their father is extremely ill in a hospital nearby. I am disgusted at the staff and their attitude towards my friends. They were ignorant and unhelpful. They need to have training on how to deal with customers.

Regency Hotel Dublin.

Great location, easy commute to the city centre (10 mins on a bus) and airport (20 mins on a bus). Great value for money, will definitely use again.

budget room

I stayed in a budget room it was fine for €49 considering what most hotels in Dublin charge. The decor and furniture was old and could certainly do with an upgrade. The food was not great either and it does get quite busy in the evening, I waited 50mins for dinner to be served in the bar? On the plus side the pool is lovely and the bus service is excellent!

An old hotel with some upgrades.

We picked this hotel not knowing anyting about it except that it was an old building in a good location for what we wanted. The rooms were clean but the windows were in need of repair or replacing. The service to the rooms and responds to our needs was very prompt and done with curtesy. I do not see taking children there, there is nothing for them.

Price is right!

Found the staff very welcoming and allowed me to check in early after a transatlantic flight. I noticed my room had new carpeting was bright and surprisingly bigger than I expected. The location is great ten minute bus ride from Dublin Airport and the town centre, Also there are many varied restaurants and pubs you can walk to locally which is a huge plus!! I had lunch at the hotel restaurant very pricey skip it and the pub is dated could do with a makeover.

If you want a good breakfast head to the Gallery steps in front of the Regency save yourself some money great variety of food and tea and coffee.You can get a full Irish Breakfast for 8.95 euro including Toast Tea and Coffee! Also turn left on Swords Rd 6 minute walk to the Ivy House Pub early bird menu dinner and a pint for under 12 Euro you cant go wrong they have the best Bangers and Mash in Dublin!

Charming & Inexpensive

We spent one night only (airport layover). The room was lovely. Only problem was the hotel restaurant - the food was good, but some items we ordered weren't available, but the waiter didn't tell us until after he had served the rest of our party. We ended up having to share meals.

Not what you think!

Looked a lot more upscale than it was. Hot water didn't work, blow dryer didn't work, restaurant was closed for a tour group making the bar area packed with 2 servers. Food was very average at best. Credit card machine didn't work so we charged to the room. [...] We stayed in hostels the entire trip except that night and I have to say the hostels were much nicer and better equipped than this hotel. I travel quit a bit and have never been so disappointed.
