Lansdowne Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at the Lansdowne recently for two nights, the second time I have stayed in the past five years. While not super luxurious, the Lansdowne is adequate for a couple good nights sleep. Its location is set back from the street, and provides silence at night. You are close enough to pubs and restaurants in the Ballsbridge neighborhood, and only a 15-20 minute walk from Grafton Street and the City Centre. What I like are the reasonable prices. I stayed at beginning of my two week trip, and wanted to economize so I could splurge at the end. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the pub in the basement has a nice selection of tap and cask beers, as well as Irish whiskies (thanks Brandon for turning me on to Green Spot and Yellow Spot!). I would definitely return to this establishment.

Just arrived for an overnight stay. Reception were not friendly , very matter of fact with information re parking etc. he was speaking in a loud voice almost like shouting at us during the check in process. Room clean bathroom very small. Tea and coffee facilities but no biscuits.... very small tv !!! The cost was a bit over the going rate but this could be due to weekend being Easter.

The information quoted for car parking is misleading- car parking is NOT free as advertised - we were charged 12 Euro for one overnight between 7 pm and 10 am the next day... False advertising and would put me off going back

I made a booking based on their information that they have on-site parking. They than rang me to tell me that it was not actually the case. So I cancelled. As I have a car with me, this is kind of relevant.

We love this place, have visited many times over many years and if you can’t get a ticket for the Rugby, watch it here. The Guinness flows, the Hot Whiskies warm you up and there’s always food available, but this is first and foremost a Rugby Pub, enjoy it

We booked a twin room for comfort and it certainly was. A very basic, comfortable room with a clean spacious ensuite and located in the rear of the hotel, giving us a quiet night. It would be different if it were the night of a rugby match as this tends to be a gathering place for exuberant fans to watch and cheer. Just cross check the date when you're booking a room if this concerns you. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and the cooked breakfast is quite good, served with a smile and top-ups of tea/coffee and toast etc. All in all I'd recommend this hotel as comfortable and convenient to Dublin city.

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.
