Historical Traveler Reviews Conrad Dublin
Refurbishments are Complete!
And the hotel is looking amazing.
The service is fantastic, and it is located just a 5 minute walk from Grafton Street, and a 10 minute walk from Temple Bar.
We were able to walk to excellent restaurants on South William Street and Kildare street.
The concierge was very helpful, we were treated as you would expect in a 5* hotel.
Breakfast is a bit steep at over 25 Euro, however you get enough food to still be eating at lunchtime!
Have a drink in Alfie Byre's before hitting the town, it a nice, clean taditional Irish bar.
For business people really
The hotel itself is lovely but I found just a little something missing. Atmosphere maybe? Its really a hotel for business people and I think we were the only guests there for a holiday.
We went on 15th Jan 2005 for two nights. Found a cheap deal through Expedia. Not sure why another reviewer suggested going through the Hilton website - I was informed you cant book through them. The Hilton in Dublin is a different hotel.
Its a great hotel for business people with all the usual facilities eg internet point etc.
The Airbus (about 11 or 12 Euros - I forget - but get a return its much cheaper) from the airport stops on the next street.
There is some refurbishment going on in the lobby at the moment which made the breakfast area quite noisy (bedrooms unaffected) and there was a business meeting going on at the next table with people answering mobile phones which was very off putting. Having had breakfast in our room the previous day, I would suggest paying the extra 5 euros if you want a bit of peace. Breakfast is a bit dear at over 20 euros extra each so do bear this in mind when considering an alternative hotel if you can get a B&B deal.
The rooms are a nice size and stylish but a bit clinical really. It doesnt have the glamour of The Shelbourne which I found myself longlingly looking at whenever we walked past and which is also nearer to town.
I have to say though that the pillows are the best!!! They have four different kinds for you to choose from!!!
As much as I liked it though, I will stay at the Shelbourne next time.
If you are going for a holiday, do go on the Dublin bus - the drivers are hilarious!!
My fourth stay at this fine hotel and as per usual I was not disappointed. This hotel is costly but if you are willing to pay for class then you will not be disappointed. The rooms are well appointed and extremely well set up for business people, not to mention the very comfortable beds. You will find the staff extremely accommodating. If there is a downside to this hotel, then it would be its location. If you wish to hang out in Temple bar then you are looking at least a 20 minute walk. Overall this is a very impressive hotel.
I quite like the hotel's character - not too flashy (I find some 5* Dubln hotels a bit "bling"!), central and good service. Extras not cheap, but for the location and a bit of conservative style, worth the money. I have stayed there 5 times on business and am going back there on pleasure for one night soon (sad, I know...)
Fantastic, this hotel is gorgeous. The rooms are big and the bed is very comfy. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Room service was a bit slow but I could live with that. Would most definately stay here again. Added that extra touch to our romantic weekend.
I have stayed in many of Dublins 5* hotels and this is my favourite. The beds are extremely comfortable and there are lovely feather duvets & pillows, the bedlinen is Egyptian cotton. The bathrooms are large and the toiletries are great too. The food is also fab and there is an early bird menu if you don't want to pay full restaurant prices. You can get great deals on the Hilton website so check it out. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dublin for it's luxury and fantastic central location which is great for shopping in Grafton Street and the famous Dublin nightlife.
Not interested in honeymooners!
We stayed at the Conrad just for a few days after our wedding in April 2004. We did tell the receptionist that we were honeymooners but this didn't make any difference at all. Not sure what we were after, just maybe a bit more pampering!! Not gonna get it here though! It is a lovely hotel though, very clean and the bedding is wonderful (crisp white sheets). It just felt a little....cold, compared to the warmth that the Irish always generate in their welcome
Good if a little pretentious
A good hotel just south of St Stephen's Green, near many of the ministries of the Irish Government but some distance from the main business and commercial areas of Dublin. Five-star pretensions means that rooms lack tea/coffee making facilities. A coach service to & from Dublin Airport stops a block behind the hotel.
Had a very nice stay
We stayed here in November of 2003 using our accumulated hilton points for a free six nights. not staying in upscale hotels very much, we were suprised by the great service at this hotel. the doorman was always friendly and helpful along with all the other staff. the rooms are nicely appointed even though the builing is kinda modern ugly on the exterior (sticks out in the nieghborhood). The location is ok but I agree with the previous review that some walking will be necessary. Did not eat at the hotel due to the high prices but it looked nice enough. The gym is functional and very clean/private. Overall, this was one of the nicest hotels this budget traveler has ever stayed at and I highly recommend it (especially if you can stay for free!!)
Get your walking shoes on
A very plush hotel, the rooms are excellent with a nightly turn down service, we are Hilton Diamond members and received a bottle champagne & a box of chocolates on arrival.
No swimming pool unfortuantely and the gym in very small, although who comes ot Dublin to get fit anyway.
The hotel is quite a walk from the top of st. Stephens Green and the centre of Dublin, although there is a bus service that stops outside the hotel.
One criticism - no tea & coffee facilities in the room & we had to pay 15 Euros for a pot of tea to the room which I though was a bit steep

We had a lot of places to see and still turn in the hire car by 4 p.m. so we were up for breakfast in the Vanilla Pod Restaurant early.
We mapped out a day to visit ancient sites between Kells and Dublin stopping first at the Hill of Tara, a pagan sanctuary and one of the seats of the Gaelic kings, then moved on to Monasterboice, site of …
Today, we planned four stops, but only got to three of them. We started with a tour of Kilmainham Gaol which is listed as the top tourist attraction in Dublin on tripadvisor.com. We enjoyed the tour, and had a knowledgeable guide show us around, but wouldn't give it such high ratings as some others have. It was on the hop-on, hop-off line and free …
Breakfast in the hotel is a bit more formal than other places we have been, with guests expected to wait to be seated and checked off the room list. There were plenty of choices including cooked-to-order eggs along with the buffet.
We walked through St. Stephen's Green to Trinity College first for the tour of the Old Library and viewing of …
... the tea and then a 3 tiered tray of finger sandwiches, cakes, scones with cream and jam. Amazing and delicious! Check out the obligatory food shots.
Well, back to our room for a rest and then off tonight to the Temple Bar district for some pub action. Okay so we had our night on the town. (Hey kid's are you getting scared yet?) We went to the Temple Bar district of Dublin, which is pub central down by the Liffy (the river that runs through Dublin). They have plenty ...
... to was an exhibit on what the soldiers wore in a certain time period. There was also outfits that we were allowed to try on! I personally think I looked really cool.
We then went to the next exhibit and saw a ton of other cool things. I am really glad we didn't just leave right after the one exhibit.
So when we left we started to feel some raindrops. But there wasn't any heavy rain or anything. As we were making our way to the 3rd ...
