    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.

    ... advantage of that and had a lovely relaxing soak in the tub. I read a bit more of my book club book, which I haven't had the chance to read, because if I have my head down on the coach, I feel sick. Then it was time to go out again for dinner. This time, we went to a pub called Nancy Hands. The food was great and the company awesome. I couldn't think of a better way to spend our last night in Dublin.

    ... kiss the stone of eloquence - definitely an invention of some complicated Victorian tourism plan! Consensus among the group was that not everyone would kiss the stone, and maybe some of the more loquacious members might want to abstain for the harmony of the group. After descending the narrowest, twistiest stairs we've seen thus far what had been a light sprinkle turned quickly into a bit of a ...

Off the other side of the main room, with a fireplace between the main and it, was the parlor which was a bit larger. Up the stairs was the parent's room. Eamonn, our driver, said that the cottage is exactly the same as the one in which he and his four brothers and two sisters were raised, and the children were ...

    ... fun.

    Now that I am back in my room at UCD, I can't believe how much I have done these past few days (and how little sleep I have had). I have three days of classes this week, and then I am done until finals. THREE days, that it. It is crazy because I feel like I have barely had class all semester and now its already done. We are planning out our next few weeks to make sure that we can fit everything in, and I have faith we can.

    ... to the old Jameson Factory for a tour and tasting. It was lucky I had purchased tickets to this tour in advance because they were well and truly sold out! The tour was interesting, unfortunately that brewery is purely for tourist purposes now, so there are now only replicas of the machinery in it, but it was still interesting to see how they make Jameson and the difference the distilling and storing techniques make on the end product. We got to taste Jameson, Johnny ...
