Historical Traveler Reviews Lynam's Hotel Dublin
i stayed in the hotel on the 21st of december and i tought the place was excellent. the room was warm clean tiday although i did have some concerns as to what the pipe in no.36 was sticking out of the ground for. i had a great nights sleep and i found the people at the front dest very welcoming
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while I was on a tour of Ireland.
The rooms were a little small..but you can't always have huge rooms, right? I didn't notice any noise really, and in the middle of the city you can expect noise. The location of this hotel is perfect, its on the busiest street in Dublin, right in the middle of everything. You're walking distance from the castles and cathedrals, plus Grafton street.
I would definitely stay there again.
Overcharged and ripped off
Me and my friends were charged 133 Euros extra for having a broken extra bed with no pillow in the double room for three nights. And even if we could prove that according their own rules, an extra rollaway-bed in the room is NO CHARGE, they refused to refund the money. As a travel agent, I now know where not to send my clients.
Stayed at Lynams on the 14th Nov 2003 for two nights the hotel was safe comfortable and friendly. The staff were very helpful and i would definitely stay there again
I feel I had to write this review of the Hotel. We have just come back from a weekend in Dublin staying at your hotel,and after reading the reviews before we went ,we were a little apprehensive of what the hotel would be like. I am happy to say that we had a wonderfull weekend,and have no complaints about the hotel whatsoever,the rooms were lovely,the breakfast we had was cooked nicely,the staff were friendly and very helpfull,and I would especially like to thank your night porter Jamie for all the help and friendliness he showed to us,nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to stay in your hotel again. from a happy welsh lady.
The room we stayed in was very hot and we were cramped for space. The worst part of it all was that we had an early flight to catch the next morning and so requested a wake up call, which never came. Thankfully, we woke on our own but when trying to rush around and get ready to leave, discovered that there was no hot water in the shower. Not a pleasant experience.
For a hotel based in the city centre, you can expect noise to a certain degree. But I have never paid so much money to stay somewhere, and I couldn't sleep. Value for money ! I think not. The noise from the fans on one side and the music on the other. The room was very small and extremely warm. I would expect heat like that on a sun holiday. I was very disappointed with my stay, and you can be re-assured that I will be paying over the nose for a "decent" hotel on my next visit. Bitterly disappointed.
We were kept awake all night with music coming from next door all night Spar shop.
Otherwise hotel and breakfast were average.
No sleep ...
stayed in this hotel middle of august 2003 for 3 nights. i guess the purpose of a hotel is to offer a bed and a good nights sleep in the first place - well that's something we didn't get... we had a twin room at the back, it was very hot, and during the night, we woke up because of the noise of rats and other animals looking for food of next door mc donalds.... the girls at the reception desk confirmed they had had complaints but couldn't do anything about it... the irish breakfast was dripping in fat, toasts were black... now the decoration is nice; the room big enough, the shower very small, and the location excellent...

... We didn't have a plan of what we wanted to do really but we chose to go on the on again off again bus and didn't get off until the Guinness factory - was a good way to see the town quickly as we didn't have a lot of time. Scott was basically in heaven in the Guinness factory. It was really interesting to see the place thou and they had done it really well. It was very interactive and wound its way up to the top level which was a bar where we got a Guinness and 360 degree ...
So today we took the ferry back to Galway. In the morning in Inis Mor we had a traditional Irish breakfast. This included cornflakes, then bread came out with marmalade, coffee, then came the main course of a fried egg, toast, sausage, bacon, white pork pudding, blood pudding.. you heard me.. blood pudding, and yes I (Amanda) tried it; sure didn't finish it though! I even convinced Landon to try ...

... cold outside and there was a chilly wind, when a small car pulled up in front of us and honked, it turns out it was Theresa, offering us a ride because she was on her way into town. We had decided we would hire a bike the following day so asked her where we could hire one from and she took us there. The bike shop didn't officially hire out bikes but said we could borrow them for 10 euro each. W then asked for directions for the cinema where none of the films were showing ...
