    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.

    ... I walked 1.5 hour to the poolbeg lighthouse, and I got to explore the natural history museum art gallery and archaeological gallery. I went to the art gallery by accident when I was trying to find the archaeology museum. But it still counts. I can't believe I didn't know this before, but the Dublin archaeology museum is where the bog bodies of Old Croghan Man and Clonycavan Man are kept. It's obvious, or course, but it didn't occur to me that they'd be there. They were ...

    Goodbye, Frankfurt. Hello Dublin

    Goodbye to Frankfurt, and hello Dublin.

    We were reminded, when we boarded our plane, that irritating as it is, the reason they generally load a plane by seat rows is to speed things up. This was a smaller plan for a 1.30 hour-ish flight - no entertainment - and we just piled on when we wanted to - chaos.

    ... ancient religious relics such as the Ardagh Chalice, Tara brooch and Shrine of St Patrick’s Bell. The Ardagh Chalice of beaten silver decorated with gold filigree was found under a stone in1868 by a boy pulling up potatoes, and the Tara brooch was found on a beach.

    After a busy sight-seeing day and preparing for an early ferry crossing back to England in the morning, we opted for a quick evening meal at an Italian restaurant nearby.
