      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.

      We had lunch at a restaurant called the church. It’s literally an old church with memorials and an organ and crosses with tables that are served for lunch and dinner. I had spinach ravioli with arugula lettuce. It was really good but sooo much food so I shared with my professor and everyone else at our table. There were five us at the table and having Dr. Dahl at our table was really cool because we just got to talk to him about ...

They kept the steel beams/girders and added glass and steel railings. It was just a very cool space to be in. One of the best museums: video displays instead of plaques to read, huge water fall in the middle of the building to emphasize the importance of the ...

After dropping Bertha off at the hotel, I took a taxi the Grafton st for some shopping. After some essential purchases, I decided a Guinness was in order. This first Guinness started a cascade of alternating shopping and drinking. Eventually, I just turned it into a one man pub ...

      ... our week in Ireland. We decided to stop at Castle Coombe, the prettiest village in England. Lucky for us it was a miserable day as there was no one there and we managed to get a car park in the village, otherwise it would have been a very long walk in the misty rain. We visited the church circa 1250, with the village following in 1450 ish. Dr Doolittle, and Warhorse were filmed here, to name 2 that I know! Apparently a good place to do this as there are ...

      We eventually got to our hotel and found that the guy at reception was extremely rude, abrupt and arrogant. We had asked a simple question about the rooms location and if it is nice and quiet (as the ones in London and Reykjavik had been quite noisy) and as we ...
