The Gibson Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

1) I got a GREAT deal on this booking from Orbitz 2) Location is great if you want to see a show at 3Arena or if you like the LUAS (tram) or if you like walking (I like walking) 3) Staff was very nice and accommodating 4) The hotel looks great outside and in 5) Rooms are spacious and comfortable - very much a US Holiday Inn Express model. 6) Beds are not the best and pillows pretty hard (standard economy hotel style) 7) Room service was good, cheapish, and fast 8) Staying here was awesome if you want a close to American hotel experience.

The hotel was nice and clean, room are bigger then expected for European hotel. 50 steps away from tram to city center. Parking was $14 per night. I would come back and stay at the same hotel. Good job Gibson Hotel.

Very nice hotel Clean, fun, quite rooms and great staff We would stay again as the location was ideal too

Nothing but positives for our stay. The hotel is located just outside city center but the public transit tram is located just outside the front door.

This was a great hotel, clean, modern, very comfortable and modern/elegant rooms. Right across a metro stop. Great service, full Irish breakfast buffet.

I had lived in Dublin before and wanted to be near the center of town but knew the areas of Temple Bar and O'Connell Street would be loud at night. I'm now too old for that! :) So I loved the fact that you could easily walk into town or take the Luas (tram) that stops immediately outside the door of the hotel. The modern rooms had everything you'd need and the front desk staff were so friendly and helpful. There is not much immediately around the hotel, as it was the area that was starting to be built up right before the recession, but again, that was a partial benefit to us.

Not much bad to say about this place. The room was clean and was ready early - the food in the restaurant was decent and the accommodations were new and modern. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dublin.

Clean, modern hotel not far from the center. Excellent base to explore Dublin and environs. Highly suggest trips to explore Ireland. What a beautiful country!

The location is a bit of a walk from city centre but I needed it with all the delicious food we were eating! Right next to the O2 and a tram is directly outside the hotel to take you to city centre! Definitely recommend eating at the oarsman for a great fish n chips, totally share worthy!

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.

A little far out from the city but very accessible.

The Gibson Hotel is a very trendy hotel situated at the point in Dublin. The room and bathroom was very modern and very well put together. Complementary Wi-Fi was available and multiple power outlets were present for electronic devices. If you were planning on seeing a show at the O2, the location is excellent. If you want to see temple bar expect a ~7 Euro (each way) taxi ride or ~4 Euro tram ride (round trip). The tram is located just outside the hotel entrance. Reception was very nice and was the bar staff. Food within the hotel is expensive, but this is to be expected. Parking in the public ramp below the hotel is very safe and secure however expensive. I believe it to be ~18 Euro a night, however parking is expensive throughout the city. All together, a very nice hotel with a good wait staff, a unique location, and excellent service.

This was a work trip and the hotel was very close to East Point Park. Cool room and terrific view of the Wicklow mountains and the O2 center.

In town for St.Paddy`s so the hotel was busy.The check in was quick and easy.Rooms and entire hotel very ultra modern.Under bed nights lights were neat.The Gibson is an easy 25 euro cab ride from the airport so you don`t need to take the shuttle,it`s quicker by cab.The hotel is 50ft from the O2 arena so on concert nights the hotel bar can be packed.For sightseeing and accessing Dublin the Luas is in front of the hotel.Take this everywhere,you can forget the cabs.The Luas has 2 lines and most of the city is a short walk from any of the stops.Service ran late because of St.Paddy`s but normally it runs until closing time in the pubs.The only negative I had about the hotel was that you can`t get anything from vending machines without a room key to activate them.Very expensive almost 3 euros for a can of coke.
