Lansdowne Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is a great economical option in Dublin. It is walking distance from many pubs, restaurants, and meeting points for day trips. It is outside of the typical touristy areas which offers some quiet and a glimpse into every day life. The rooms are up many flights of stairs so be prepared! Our room was small, but it had everything we needed. The staff is friendly and the hotel offers free WiFi. There is a breakfast each morning that is quite good, but it isn't included with your stay. The pub downstairs does a daily meal at a discounted price which was always very tasty and wallet friendly. The hotel hosts a show called Irish House Party which is a fun way to learn about and enjoy some traditional Irish music and dance. We had a great time at this hotel.

My room was a last minute deal so it was good value for money if a little basic. It was on the ground floor at the back of the hotel and so there was no street noise, however it was adjacent to the stairs so there was a little noise from people going up and down to their rooms. The barfood is excellent and the Guinness isn't bad either. The staff are very friendly without being overbearing. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.

Stayed here while working nearby. Staff very helpful and seem to really enjoy where they work. They tried their best to help when I was suffering from food poisoning. Very warm hotel. Great quality traditional Irish music on display / showcase (paid event) most evenings. I didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on that. Ballsbridge / Pembroke Road / Baggot Street is a nice and safe area and there are lots of really good restaurants within walking and driving distance. The rooms are a little dated but they are clean and comfortable and the hotel is quite old style with different corridors and staircases (it's a little bit of a maze!) I would definitely stay here again mostly because the staff were so welcoming and helpful.

Stayed here 2 nights close to Aviva Stadium. Car park closes on matches where they have an open air pub. Very comfortable but we were on the third floor, no lift so had to carry suitcases up, although it did say you can ask for help. Old style hotel but very clean double room was fine for us and big enough. Fair walk into Dublin centre but there is transport. Friendly staff who will give information on nearby places to eat or drink bar is closed on Sunday.

We were in Dublin for the first time and called in to the Lansdowne for breakfast.The two Annes welcomed us with open arms and made us feel very much at home.We were served a great meal and given lots of good information about the city.We felt so comfortable we decided to call back after attending the Rugby.Again we were greeted warmly,enjoyed a beer and burger and left vowing that the next time we visit we will be staying at the Lansdowne.

Foremost the atmosphere is really good. Staff is friendly and the hotel is cosy. Breakfast is good. Location is fine specially if you want to visit the Aviva Stadium. It's a 30min to templebar area. If I go back to Dublin, I will stay in this hotel.

Stayed here for one night with my wife for the Ireland v Denmark match. Great location to the Aviva. We got a phone call a few nights before we arrived to say car-park closes on match days so had to pay for on street parking so just be aware of that!! Room was clean ,breakfast was great and its not to far to Grafton St. Would definitely stay here again.

Me and my Mum came here for our first trip to Dublin and it is a really nice hotel. Very affluent area, no trouble and quiet at night. Convenience store is a 5 minute walk, as are the restaurants and village centre.

We stayed at this hotel for one night when there was a big storm in Ireland. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival by the lady on reception. The advice from the government re the weather was that people should stay indoors on the basis of this we had decided to eat at the hotel but unfortunately neither the bar nor the restaurant were open because of the weather staff not available, this meant we had to take the risk and go out to find somewhere to eat , the options were limited because so many places were closed.This was an unusual situation for the hotel but perhaps some sort of simple fare should have been available. Our room was large clean and comfortable with a double and single bed.It was quiet and we had a great nights sleep For breakfast we had the cold buffet which was adequate and the staff were friendly and helpful

Stayed here as a group of guys celebrating a birthday. The hotel is situated close to the stadium and a few shops and bars. We arrived at 11am in time to watch the football game which started at 12.30. We were told that the bar downstairs didn't show football only rugby ! I assume if they show the rugby that they have sky sports And could have out it on for us. We were then told we should head into the city centre. Now there were 8 of us looking food and drink. Maybe they don't need the money. We walked about 500 yards to the ballsbridge hotel who couldn't have been more accommodating. On returning to the hotel at tea time some of us had something to eat downstairs in The Den something I wouldn't recommend. Not many chips in " the basket of chips" disgraceful and the gentleman who served really had no idea about hospitality. The rooms were adequate but a little dated howevever they were clean. Went down for breakfast which wasn't included in our booking and this is where we found genuine friendliness. The lady who was looking after breakfast was excellent. Friendly, chatty and quick and the only reason any of us would return to this hotel.
