Historical Traveler Reviews Leeson Inn Downtown Dublin
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.

It was recommended by a friend and must say I was very pleased I stayed in the Inn
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.
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.
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!
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.

Dublin Castle was not the most impressive Castle I have ever seen. (the most impressive one was in the Czech Republic. Castle Charles. Now that was a Castle.) In fact I don't even know if I would call this a "true Castle". If anything, it was more less just a really impressive old compound. For seven centuries Dublin Castle was the seat of English rule, even since the ...
... the best option as it was over a 4 hour drive. We arrived and eventually found Norm's old home and then searched & searched until we found the cemetery where Norm's parents & siblings were buried, a bit of an emotional journey for Justin but one that was well worth doing, It's nice to put pieces of the puzzles of life into place.
We enjoyed both Scotland & Ireland, but are looking forward to some downtime & sun!! Beannacht Ireland

We hopped off first at the oldest university in Ireland, Trinity College to view it's famous library and the crown jewel of its collection, the Book of Kells. The Book of Kells is a latin book of 4 new testament gospels written/illustrated circa 800AD. Both the book and the library ...
First stop Kilkenny, where there is a castle, of course! Gorgeous rose garden, the blooms are huge and dense, with a rich scent. They will be spectacular in a couple of weeks when the rest of the thousands of buds come out. There is a also a secret garden behind the Design Centre, with a pond, roses espaliered on the brick walls, paths bordered with hedges, lovely. A local guide Aiden ...
... it was kinda gutsy of me to walk in, not really knowing the reels and jigs they were playing, though I have a great ear for chords and could quickly figure it out, but I think being American didnt help, so I respectflly said thats thats ok! and sat with Shane and Marguerite who kept apologizing and expressing their disappointment and they told me of a place their cousin plays a session on sundays, and they friended me on FB and theyre going to come out and see me ...
