      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.

      ... only guard there was on his phone and didn't try to stop anyone walking past. We still aren't sure if we were supposed to have our passports stamped, or if it was okay to just leave like everyone else. We ended up waiting 45 minutes for our hotel shuttle. Remember, it was 64 in Dublin when we left, and 32 in Stockholm so we were COLD. We had no issues checking in to our hotel, and had some chips and salsa at the hotel and watched Swedish Idol, which was definitely entertaining.

      ... Revolution. In the courtyard, we were told about the importance of the courtyard in the Revolution, as it both started and ended there. It was a very interesting tour, and our tour guide gave us many extra tidbits that were helpful and interesting.

      We also made our way to the Temple Bar area, which is a very colorful and busy area. It is an area that has many pubs and restaurants that have live Irish music and traditional ...

      ... Jail and a Debtor's Prison. It was a model in its day. Later it was used as a political prison. Many of the Irish leaders fighting for independence were executed there. The tour guide was excellent and made the times come alive, The last prisoner to be held there was Eamon de Valera, who later became president of Ireland. The prison closed in 1924. It is an excellent exhibit of Victorian prison life. There were some interesting ...

      ... So even though it is not raining, I put on my rain pants just for the warm. The game is going well until there is just 1 minute 13 seconds left and UCF scores a touchdown to take the lead 24-23. NOOO! This isn’t happening. But then the Nittany Lions take it down the field and are within field goal range. With the clock running out, the 36 yard field goal attempt is good! Mayhem breaks out! Nittany Lions win! High fives and hugs ...

      ... first day was very relaxed because Erin and I were absolutely exhausted. We went to a burrito place with the girls and it felt like I was back at an East Lansing chipotle it was so good. In fact I could barely walk afterwards. After that we sat around in a park with a few beers and enjoyed personal stories and even made an irish friend. I realized at that point that Irish accents are not as easy to recreate as they seem. After sleeping for a ...
