Dining

Breakfast
Breakfast is in Raglans Restaurant. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to the experts. You can enjoy yours in the tranquil ambience of Raglans. Choose between a large continental selection of freshly baked rolls, pastries, fruit, cereals and freshly squeezed juices or if you would prefer something more substantial, help yourself to our full Irish Breakfast buffet. Breakfast is served daily from 7am to 10:30am.
Bar
The Dubliner Pub Established in 1963, the Dubliner Pub has built a reputation for authentic Irish pub grub and craic that draws in many eclectic locals, so you'll be sure to experience first hand the warmth and vitality that is synonymous with any visit to our fair city. 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.
Barber Shop
In town for an important interview or just want to impress the ladies, then pop along to Gerrard's Barber Shop just inside the door of the Ballsbridge Hotel. Established in 1972 and gaining in reputation since, you can treat yourself to a shave or a new look from a European Barber Championship gold medal winner.

Poor Overall Service

Firstly the room was very clean and I was happy with the overall comfort of the room. Nothing special but it met my needs perfect. The hospitality on the other hand was dreadful. The staff were very unfriendly and unwelcoming. It did not feel like they valued the custom but saw me like another cash cow. Even after paying EUR140 a night for a standard room, they charge me an additional EUR10.50 per night for using the car park which the hotel owns! I travel to Dublin a lot for both Business and pleasure and often try different hotels for variety. I wish I hadn't chosen the Ballsbridge Hotel and I wont be frequenting there again. Loads of other top quality hotels in Dublin which do provide the great Irish hospitality that is expected.

Couple city break

Very nice hotel, the entrance and lobby is amazing. Really does have the wow factor! Room was a very good size and the bed was comfy too, our room was right near the lift and we heard no noise! There is a taxi rank just outside the hotel and it was only about 20-30 mins walk to town centre, staff are all so lovely! Would happily stay there again

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights Friday-Monday! We had a fab time and feel like we got a great deal on this hotel! The rooms were very spacious and clean and the beds were extremely comfy! It was also only a 5-10 journey into the centre of Dublin! Would definetely stay here again!

Business trips

I've stayed at the Ballsbridge Hotel once a week over the last couple of months, mainly due to the location and car parking (€10.50 per 24hrs). The rooms are standard, perhaps a little dated for some, but they are very clean and the staff are very friendly, offering a warm welcome back each cold Monday evening I have arrived.
