      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.

      ... Ted, everyone has a favorite episode and can quote it, and I get em now, and I do impressions of Father Doogle and yell "GIRLS" and "DRINK" like Father Jack now, which always gets a laugh from the locals, and "go on, go on, go on" like Mrs. Doyle giving you tea, what a great show! So I guess I got some more Iriish education from watching this show, so that was grand :-) Thanks, Father Ted

      ... better. I bit the bullet and took some antibiotics after some indications that it might have been an infection. I've still got a very annoying nagging cough but my voice is back and I feel a lot better than I did after Christmas. I'm not entirely satisfied it's been treated properly by taking the antibiotics as the cough isn't going anywhere, but at least I no longer feel like I have the plague! This is definitely the noisiest hostel we've been in so far. Earplug time! Night ...

      ... is a series of rapids passing through a narrow gap, but the path passes through a small tunnel at the side. We could not agree whether the tunnel was an old river channel or was man made. The valley is just gorgeous, though the rocky path was very slippery underfoot. Further along was the Devil's Cauldron. This was the most spectacular part of the whole walk. Here the river is actively carving a path for itself through the rock in a very narrow canyon in a most spectacular ...

      ... or what. Finally everyone started getting ready to go out and invited me with them. I decided to work up the courage to say yes and ended up teaching them some American drinking games. It is pretty funny because no one in Europe plays games like Americans do. They all think it is ridiculous how good Americans always are at them. We all ended up going out together to a few pubs after some games and had a blast! The next day I woke up and realized I had the ...
