With traditional music at the weekends and big screens for all the big games, the Dubliner is the place to enjoy the craic and lively banter into the early hours of the morning.

Reasonable value

We stayed at the ball bridge hotel for over night visit to Dublin . It was what we considered good value but the room was very warm and it was also on the road side of hotel so was very noisy. We are a family with a young daughter so a good might sleep is required but sadly due to noise and heat this was not possible. Not sure I would stay again

Not the best hotel

Nice setting, but too far from the city centre. The hotel website claims it's a 15-20 minute walk. It's actually about a 2 mile walk into the heart of the city centre so it takes 30-40 minutes to get there. Door for the bathroom wouldn't shut properly. Shower gel bottle which was attached to the wall was empty. TV remote didn't work properly so you had to get really close to the TV just to turn it on/change channels/volume. Not the best hotel, wouldn't stay there again.

1 night stay over

They had us booked in as a double when I had asked for a twin, but receptionist was extremely helpful and found us the last one on the 8th floor (top floor). Would stay there again, very convenient for Dublin shopping

Makes Dublin hotels look bad and that's really saying something!

I travel from the west coast of America to Dublin for business about every three weeks. Being a road warrior, I know full well the limitations of Dublin hotels. But this one is bad even by Dublin standards. I stayed 7 nights. The fire alarm only went off once during the night so that was a plus. Shampoo and soap was only provided once time during my stay, the telephone in the room did not work at all despite telling the front desk and the staff "changing" the phone, the kettle was broken when I checked in, there is only one garbage can in the room (bathroom), which isn't a big deal, but is actually annoying. Internet is complicated and may only be used on one device - you must decide between your mobile or your computer. There are no areas in the hotel that have free internet. I could go on and on. But the real kicker was that after I had stayed 7 nights during a slow period and had spent money at the pub/restaurant, they threatened to charge me 30 euros if I checked out an hour late. Pure Klass. My last time there. You've been warned.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The dubliner is a nice little bar. It is virtually all Americans. Irish stay away in the evenings. They have a hard time charging drinks and food to your room, but once they get the hang of it, it's pretty decent.

Rugby weekend

Superb hotel, friendly staff and the room excellent. Ideally situated for the Aviva stadium, The only downside is the food and drink overpriced but to be expected in a Dublin hotel. Would we stay again YES

Great weekend

We stayed at this hotel for two nights & after reading a few not so good reviews I was slightly concerned. When we arrived first impressions were very good. The lady on reception was very welcoming & helpful. Our room was very clean, spacious & well presented!! We eat in the hotel restaurant on ventines night. The food was lovely although the staff didn't really seem to know what they were doing, but it didn't spoil the evening. Overall location is good about 10 mins from dublin in a taxi which costs €9-12. Would defiantly stay here again.

Winning rugby location

Public areas of the hotel are a much higher standard than the bedrooms. Our disabled accessible room was so far from the lobby the receptionist had to draw a map to show us how to get there! This was far from ideal. The room was shabby but clean. It was freezing althought staff helpfully provided a heater. Regarding location it was very handy for the Aviva.

Johnnys Stay

First nights stay was a nightmare. There was a private party held within one of the hotels banqueting rooms. Music was playing load until 3.30am, not good when you have work the next day. I was offered another room but I decided to change as there would have been too much hassle for me to move from ground floor to the 6th floor. Bit of a silly set up with charging food and drink to your room, staff insist that your card details be taken at reception rather than the bar or restaurants till points. Location is excellent if you are visiting the RDS. Price is very good too if you book early.
