      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.

      ... t synch to the terminal's Wi-Fi so I positioned myself at an airline Kiosk terminal looking for a flight out of Germany on Nov. 25, the day after I had told the car rental agency, Europcar FYI, that I would turn the car in. It was a wildly ballpark date since I didn't have a clue and frankly didn't care when I would turn in the car. And if you want to extend or shorten a car rental, just do it, the rental company doesn't care. As to the return ...

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.

Barb slipped on her sweater when she jumped up to grab one of the dancer's bum. No it wasn't one of those type of places but he was shaking his butt in her face. A great night!!!

      ... to just purchase and try a couple drams instead. After that, we meandered along the river to the Guinness brewery. We did the tour, and I think I noticed a few more details this time, but the best part was still the gravity bar at the top floor, where you get to see the most perfect pint of Guinness poured for you, then get to sip it as you overlook the city. I have never had Guinness anywhere that tasted better than at that bar.

      ... Kay was a little tired after the long trip but was delighted when she was greeted so warmly by Anna and very quickly said that the long trip was worth it. Over the next few days Kay was very keen to keep up with us – "I might miss something" was the usual comment when we suggested that she stay home and have a rest!

      After a couple of days we headed west to Galway to see Paddy, Noel and their three delightful children. Their property 15 ...
