    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.

    ... thinking for hard earned $$ longer than most religions. (I watch for lightning even when I am visiting churches!) This church is/was heavily supported by the Guinness (beer) family who were rewarded by a number of private pews so they don't have to rub elbows with the masses right up at the front of the congregation. You know, that place you have to sit if you show up too late for any service. ...

We talked to some nice people from Canada who were in Dublin a few days before catching a Crystal cruise all around Ireland. We told them about our cruise last summer and exclaimed how we both loved Crystal cruise line. After the show we had enough time for another ...

    So far, no icebergs.

    Cobh was great. It was a little bit like the ABC show, Doc Martin. A small fishing village with one main road with lots of small cafes, restaurants & pubs. The town went all out to welcome the ship. Australian flags everywhere and all the shop windows featured Australian themed settings and were all judged by the local Business Chamber. This is despite Cobh hosting 54 cruise ships this season. For some reason they just love the Australian ...

    This morning, I left my bag with the staff, found a hostel (literally around the corner) and checked in, for more than I wanted to pay, but worth it.  It's funny how priorities change instantly. Last week when I was looking for a hostel, I wanted the cheapest bed in the cheapest hostel. My priority was money.  Today I wanted a not overcrowded room in a safe and secure hostel. My priority is security. And ...

    ... was over, we hopped back on the coach and were taken to Trinity College where Calum introduced everyone to the Dublin City Quest. While everyone was off on their quest, I found myself at the local Starbucks (free wifi) and then I wandered around Trinity College. I am regretting not forking out the 10 Euro admission fee to see the Book of Kells. I originally thought I would not have had enough time to see it, but looking ...
