We visited the Wilder for two day at the start of a ten day trip to Ireland and Scotland. We were warmly welcomed and brought to the loveliest room upon arrival. We chose a shoebox room which was perfect. The decor, the bed, the finishes - everything was just perfect and carefully thought out. We had a tall window with a nice view of the neighbourhood from our room. The interior of the hotel is beautifully decorated - a perfect mix of modern along with honouring all the features of an historic property. They have a fantastic art collection you'll notice throughout. Staff at the little front desk were very helpful in recommending whatever we wanted. They provided advice and directions on how to get to the airport in the middle of the night when we had to catch a very early flight - they even made us a breakfast to take on the bus with us when they realized we were leaving earlier than expected. They went above and beyond and show they truly care about their guests. The location of the hotel is fabulous. Tucked into a cosy street so you feel like you're staying in a Dublin neighbourhood rather than right downtown. The great thing is that you're within walking distance to everything you'll need! We took the bus from the airport which was quite easy to get to. My favourite part of the Wilder experience was the lovely breakfast room and the most delicious breakfast we had our our trip. I had a vegetarian full irish breakfast along with several yummy pastries, breads, cheese and fruit from their breakfast table. DELICIOUS! I also want to compliment the team who provides the breakfast service - the young woman who served us was such a professional and made us feel special. In fact, all the staff that we met with during our stay were just as great. You obviously care about your employees and in return, they treat your guest like gold. I am a picky traveller and I will honestly say that The Wilder is in my top 3 hotels I've stayed in around the world. I wish I had occasion to go back soon. When I do visit Dublin again I will plan for a special stay at the Wilder. My only regret is that we didn't find the time to sit down and have a gin. Next time!

We stay in Dublin pretty often and this is absolutely my favourite hotel by far. The location is fantastic- close to everything but in a leafy area away from the crowds. The rooms are really thoughtfully decorated. We went for a suite, which was lovely. The only criticism I have is that the bathroom is very small. The staff were very nice and helpful. I loved that they provided access to complimentary scones in the afternoon. I can't comment on the breakfast as we always go to Brother Hubbards, also not far from this hotel, for a delicious breakfast when we are in Dublin.

We stayed in this charming hotel on our first ever Dublin visit. Our expectations were certainly exceeded, this hotel was better value than the surrounding choices. Spacious rooms which were very clean, Bar menu limited with food choices but the breakfast was outstanding, we were looked after by Leona(?) who was very cheerful and delighted to provide recommendations of Dublin. Would not hesitate in returning again. Thank you!

I was only able to stay at the Wilder for one night on my way out of town after biking for eight days in the west of Ireland. But I would certainly go back. Often in boutique hotels this chic, the staff is aloof and unfriendly. Not so here! They were efficient, warm, and welcoming. The breakfast is meticuously laid out, and very tasty. And the design is impeccable and unique. I am in the book trade and was so pleased to see a volume of Oscar Wilde's short stories left on my bed next to the mints at turn-down time. A lovely touch!

I travelled to Dublin for business and picked the Wilder based on location, but I'll definitely be back. I loved the amenities and decor, and the service was top notch. Clean and comfortable, they embraced the details such as nightly turn-down service with a book and candies left on the bed for me. Great property!

This is s truly beautiful place to stay. My room was both beautiful & comfortable. The service was outstanding!!! Breakfast was wonderful. And it’s close enough for you to simply walk into the main attractions. Worth god Euros spent.

Top notch terrific hotel. The entire staff was so friendly, helpful, professional and courteous. We had a suite and it was wonderful. Everything was sparkling clean. The decor is eclectic, fun and well done. We loved having breakfast in the garden room and a gin and tonic at the bar at the end of the day relaxing after touring around Dublin. So happy we booked our stay in Dublin here - loved it!

We are still staying in this wonderful Boutique Hotel nearly in the heart of Dublin . The staff is super friendly and we are enjoying every minute here. The breakfast is stunningly good with a fantastic coffee and the atmosphere in the breakfast room is warm and cosy . Tomorrow is my boyfriends 50th birthday. Let’s see if they congratulate. Than the hotel would earn 6 stars :-)) I am shire we will come back. Reinhard

I stayed three nights at the Wilder and was thrilled and appreciative with all aspects of my stay. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and worked hard to be sure I was comfortable. Everyone from housekeeping, front desk, bar and food, breakfast staff and the managers made my stay a memorable one. The full Irish breakfast was the best during my stay in Ireland. The rooms and lobby were so nicely decorated with great artwork, interesting reads and comfortable beds with lovely linens. I enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard and love this location for restaurants, museums and a walk along the canal. The Luas transit is a step away. Definitely a repeat for me!!

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here in the most magnificent boutique style hotel on the day of the All Ireland Hurling Final. We were greeted with the most genuine friendliest welcome from the gorgeous receptionist and staff. Everybody took great interest in ensuring our stay was perfect. The Wilder is the most beautiful Victorian style hotel. It is elegant with stunning red bricks on the exterior. It is so peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. A wonderful getaway for a romantic weekend. As you walk into the entrance you will notice the beautiful patio gardens which immediately grabs your attention and you sense that welcoming WOW. The most important element I noticed was the level of hospitality, professionalism and the attention to detail all staff members offered. As I was somewhat incapacitated the staff over exceeded their level of duty to offer me the excellent customer service. Our bedroom was the most beautifully decorated room I have ever stayed in. The Victorian style is so sophisticated. Simply put, we were offered 7 class service in The Wilder Townhouse. It exceeded my expectations and I for sure will be returning again. My complements to the manager and staff.
