    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.

    Leaving Dublin - harder than we thought

    ... away, to find that it was a very long street and we had no idea which way we were supposed to go. So helpful. By this point our plane was due to leave in a little over an hour, so we decided to give up and catch a taxi. Unfortunately we had no euros left, so we had to pay in pounds, which the taxi driver was pleased about, us, not so much. Luckily Dublin airport is not far from the city at all, and it only took about 15 minutes by taxi. We made our flight by the skin of our teeth!

    ... the other side I grabbed my things and again began to sprint. I put on one shoe and then the next as I ran. I had reassembled my outfit and was sprinting again. My gate was almost all the way at the end and I had 7 minutes left of boarding. At every chance I hopped onto those moving floor walkway’s weaving in and out of people. How many different romantic comedies has this scene been in I thought to myself. At one point I jumped onto the back of a moving golf cart ...

They sleep on a just a blanket; half an inch of foam is an absolute luxury beyond their wildest dreams. Stiff from such a bed, she unfurls and then stretches, contemplating and bracing herself for the first encounter of the day- the long drop, that dreaded ritual that perforates an ...

    Guilberth arrives, like a professional camerero, except for his shirtless top half. His meagre twelve years are not so obvious, he works harder than most men I know, and for what? A game of cards, a few English words to use on the ladies, a chance at a better life. He will succeed, you can see it in his eyes. For all the mischief there is a hunger, a hunger for ...

    ... enjoy a normal lunch to kill some time. Of course the concept of a restaurant does not seem to exist in Paris airports. Had to resort to simple sandwiches again...grrr. Uncle Philp was at the Dublin airport to meet us as was the Irish wind and rain. Customs went very smoothly as he saw our names Sullivan and Flaherty. He asked where we were staying - after hearing Baldoyle he threw up his arms and said you are pretty much ...
