stayed here for 2 nights just left today...apart from our mix up with rooms on our late arrival it was a good error was sorted in a jiffy....rooms ok but our cold tap was the hot and hot was the cold....this was the family room....just beware for kettle in the rooms you get your coffee and so on downstairs 24h....also no lift so stairs to climb.....staff on arrival really nice...and breakfast great. continental or loads of choice....hotel is not too far from the centre and is within an easy walk about 20mins or less....reception is 24h...all in all its a great place with all you need

We arrived on the Thursday afternoon and were shown to our room up 4 flights of stairs .no lifts. We complained to reception about the room . Bottom quality room with top quality price and the room was freezing with no hearing on. It's only December after all. The owner came up to the room and simply said, if you don't like it you can always leave. It's real easy just to get another hotel !!!! He then calmed down a bit and offered us 50 euro off the 330 total Bill, a small gesture. He told us the heating came on between 17.00 and 10.00 the next morning. The radiators were off by 09.00. The shower and toilet were so small that if you carried a few extra pounds you wouldn't be able to use them. You had to open the shower door to wash you feet. The electric sockets did not totally cover the wiring. The carpets didn't fit. All of the wardrobes didn't open. They didn't even ask if we enjoyed our stay when we left. No kettle in room Location ok

Dated room and no elevator. I am old so it was a bit of a climb. I want to stress that the staff was very nice and helpful. It was not a long way to the new tram. The shower was small and low water pressure.

Ideal location at O'Connell Street, next to the transport links for airport buses, and within walking distance to everything in Dublin. The staff was nice and very informative to all our questions. Would definitely use again.

More than happy to remain rational about peoples comments and experiences and booked Barrys hotel with an open mind and benefit of doubt... It has to be said they have managed effortlessly to demonstrate how not to run a Hotel, thoroughly indifferent to their customer expectation. When providing services to the public it has to be accepted that they will have an opinion, Barrys is delusional if it regards its VERY expensive services as a decent standard... small cold room in need of attention, with a badly modernised bathroom but im not getting into that blah blah!!.... It is often said you get what you pay for at Barrys you dont get anywhere near what you pay for , simply if you can avoid it there are some lovely stays in Dublin at cheaper cost.... But hey I paid so whos the mug!... thanks for an atrocious stay... I will, in future, book my luxury accommodation hahahhahhhaaaahhh!! more carefully in the future, good luck you need it.(as well as a full refurb)

When you enter the lobby the hotel is filled with charm and feels beautiful, warm, and welcoming. Staff are lovely. But it ends there. The rooms are old and dingy with terrible dirty green carpets. Lighting is very bad. The TV is tiny. The bathroom is tiny. There is no space to work if you're there in business. Bed is a lovely old brass bed, but bedding and mattress are horrid and uncomfortable. You can feel every spring. Everything is dinged-up and old looking. No amenities in the room that you'd normally find even in budget hotels (tea kettle, hair drier, etc.) Shower faucet is on backward so hot is actually cold. Nearly scalded my hands off. Very good hot water and water pressure, however. Looks like a new toilet which is a plus. It looks like someone started renovations, but gave up. Or they did it themselves. Breakfast was very good and free coffee/tea in the lobby was a plus. But, I'd say do yourself a favor and spend the extra €20 to stay somewhere else.

Had to visit Dublin at short notice and ended up booking Barry’s hotel for two nights. Dingy place, and not at all suitable for a business trip (no trouser press or iron in the room, no tea making facilities either). No aircon, WiFi not working properly and even when it did it was too slow to be of any use. No lift. Shower didn’t work properly, carpet badly stained,tiny dingy room and minuscule bathroom. It was £90 a night which was extortionate.

Sign outside states a luxury hotel, not in the least. Dirty, musty smell from nothing in the building being updated ever, with stains all over the carpets. All furniture looks like it was acquired through used donations. The wifi constantly goes in and out minute to minute, very frustrating. The front desk staff is quite unpleasant and not the least helpful. However, the housekeeping staff is very nice and professional.

Sign outside says luxury!!! No way is it luxury. Old dirty smelly and unsafe. Window locks broken dirty carpet. Rooms are small and they smell. Safe are nice but seriously outrageous prices. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw our room. Paid $230 (AUD) per night. Not happy

Bad in every way dont stay. Over priced out of date not acceptable in this day and age and expensive for what it is. I was booked in here for 4 nights with my daughter for a course she was doing. The night watchman was unhelpful the room was small and smelled stale. We got up early went across the road for breakfast as there was no way Id eat anything in Barrys. We booked in across the road 5 times nicer rooms and surroundings lovely staff and much less money too. So just go across the road if you need to be near this place
