    Historical Traveler Reviews Leeson Inn Downtown Dublin

    Very Bad


    Don,t go to this hotel. The breakfast is not good, the maid service is really terrible,i.e room wasn,t vacuumed for a week, no toilet roll (had to ask). no tea bags or milk, (had to ask) altogether no a nice hotel. The only plus point was the Romanzo italian resturant about 100 yards from the hotel - service and food was excellent.

    What a waste


    What a waste of a great location. Its walking distance to all the sights and sounds of Dublin, great links to the airport....but what a dump.Believe the reviews, the breakfast is the worst I've ever tried.

    The irish tourist board should ban them from calling it "Irish". The rooms are tiny, blood on the curtains, bed was made up but with the same sheets ?My advice pay a bit extra of pick a more traditional B&B further out and spend the money you save on a bus pass. Won't be going back.

    Secon Time Lucky


    It was recommended by a friend and must say I was very pleased I stayed in the Inn

    Not bad


    This hotel is alright, the breakfast is satisfactory, the rooms are pretty cramped however. I stayed in a double and there was just barely enough room to walk around the beds (two twin beds shoved together) to the bathroom.

    It's not dirty and it's not clean. The staff are pretty nice most of the time, but you do have to take into account that Lower Leeson is part of the red light district in Dublin.

    I didn't know that when I was there, but a friend who stayed in Dublin for 6 months afterwards was walking home along Lower Leeson and was asked if she and her friend were "ladies of the night." Some investigation on their part led to the discovery that Lower Leeson Street is where you can find yourself a lady of low morals.

    But you are really close to St. Stephen's Green.

    Below Expectations


    Room was very basic and not properly cleaned. Service in Hotel was rather poor as was the breakfast (no fried-eggs!). Will try somewhere else next time.

    Lovely rooms


    Great hotel and well worth the money! The rooms are clean and very tastefully decorated. The location is good for access to all parts of Dublin. The only downfall is the breakfast which is pretty dire but apart from that a very good all round place to stay!

    Great weekend


    I came to Ireland on a touring holiday and stayed at the Leeson Inn. There were lots of interesting places to go. the staff were very helpful.



    I meet the girl of my dreams at the Inn and we aare now engaged.

Upon arriving in Dublin, we learned that Turkish police forces attacked participants in Istanbul's annual Pride parade at Taksim Square.

    ... had time for it before catching the bus to the airport. Dublin Castle was originally a viking fortress from when they first settled in Dubh Linn. Much of it has been burnt down or blown up from wars so not a lot of the original structures remain, but many of the gates and walls are still standing. It was also crucial during the Easter uprising, and was taken by rebels. James Connolly, one of the key rebels was held in the state apartments for a little while before he was sent ...

I went to the library for the first time this week and even got locked in it! Crazy everything closes so early at this school.

    Aside from doing homework, I have actually started working out again. I have gone on a bunch ...

    ... games, win or lose, each athlete folds up their jersey and hands it back to the managers. They don't consider the jerseys their individual jersey. They consider the jerseys the country's jersey and they want to give the country the respect of playing the game, which is why each player folds up their own jersey and hands it back. After Croke Park, we had lunch and did a walking tour of Dublin where we learned about many historical places. ...
