      Historical Traveler Reviews Ripley Court Hotel Dublin

      Excellent Stay

      from

      First time in Dublin had a great time. The hotel although not in the most eye catching environment was excellent. The staff were very courteous and helpfull in every way. Rooms were spacious and clean. Leaving for the early flight and before the official breakfast time was not a problem without hesatation the night staff prepared something for us. Well worth staying at.

      Well worth every penny

      from

      Having spent a recent second break in Dublin staying at The Ripley Court I am happy to report that it's still as good as I remember the last time. Spotlessly clean, friendly, and great value for money. Dublin, much as I enjoy the time there, is an expensive city and good value for money is hard to find. The Ripley is a gem of a hotel with excellent facilities and a very central location. I highly recommend it and look forward to returning in the summer.

      More than adequate for a stay to see Mamma Mia

      from

      Was only in Dublin for the one night as we were attending the first night of Mamma Mia(4th September 2004) We had difficulty getting any accommodation close to the Point but eventually were able to book the hotel. Professional and efficient welcome at reception. Booked the restaurant for 6.00p.m. and had a dinner reasonablely priced at 20 euros. Hotel had booked us a taxi for 7.30p.m. at our request. An adequate breakfast the next morning rounded off a very pleasant trip.The breakfast manager was very welcoming and nothing was a problem to him.Our room was large, very tidy and clean. though air conditioning would have been welcomed due to the day and night being very warm for Irish standards. We were able to park the car in the underground car park, which was locked, until residents asked Security to open it. This hotel proved more than adequate for our requirements for a one night stay. The staff were predominately not Irish with very good command of the English language. We heard no train noises. We definitely will be back.

      Great Stay

      from

      I've just come back from a 4 night stay at the Ripley Court and have really enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is beautiful and I was really surprised at how good it was considering the great deal that I got for my stay there. Brilliant value for money for a city centre location!

      The rooms are excellent, really cosy equiped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. My room was quite close to the front actually so I don't know what all the fuss about the trains is. They didn't bother me and I wouldn't say that I was a particularly heavy sleeper.

      The staff are really friendly and helpful - the receptionists cant give enough advice on where to go and what sights to see. They really know the city.

      I highly reccommend this hotel and will definitely go back soon.

      Terrible experience!

      from

      This hotel has no central heating! The small and completely inadequate heaters do not work between 11:00 pm and 7:00 am. My room (203) had an added feature: a hole in the wall(!) so I could hear the trains passing within 10m from my bed even louder. Soundproofing is poor: Between passing trains I could hear the conversations in the next room.

      First impression not good

      from

      As our wonderful friendly taxi driver pulled up outside the Ripley Court Hotel to unload us and our luggage, we were waved away by a staff member responsible for the security of the hotel's car park but it only needed a few words of explanation that the taxi was blocking the entrance. Good food and helpful otherwise - would be good to see some brown sugar as well as white in the restaurant.

      Great Place to stay while in Dublin!

      from

      I just returned from a five day stay at the Ripley Court. This hotel is great place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Dublin. The lobby is beautiful and the guest rooms are spacious and clean. I would recommend requesting a room in the back of the hotel as the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) train is near the front of the hotel.

      Also, the hotel staff will allow you to check in early if you call them in advance and your room is available. This is a rare with most Dublin hotels, however, a nice amenity when you are flying into Dublin on an overnight flight from the USA. Another plus is the hotel is located in the City Centre - allowing you not to have to spend a lot of money on expensive Dublin taxis. I would definitely recommend the Ripley Court!

      Breakfast difficult to get.......

      from

      Unless you get a room at the back of the hotel I would not recommend staying here as the train runs right across the front of the hotel. We had some problem with breakfast on the second day as the breakfast room/restaurant is not big enough to cope with the demand when the hotel is busy. All in all we waited 20 minutes in the smoky reception area and still did not get seated. We ended up eating elsewhere and still having to pay full price for the booking of room and breakfast.

      We were not impressed at all with how we were dealt with by the manager. However the bar next door was very good, and the staff in the bar very friendly.

      Watch room location

      from

      Stayed here September 2003. Had checked this site so was prepared for the neighborhood. It wasn't that bad. There were several boarded up buildings, but they were in the process of renovation. It's only a couple of blocks from O'Connell Street and the River Liffey, and a few minute walk to Temple Bar. When checking in ask for a room at the back of hotel. Front rooms have the elevated train running right outside.

      Sounded like they were coming through the room. They run late in the night and early morning. Breakfast was good and staff helpful. There is also a parking garage next door in case you have a car.

      Paradise Found

      from

      I found a little piece of heaven on earth at the Ripley Court Hotel. Ok, so the location may be a little on the seedy side but walk for 2 minutes and I was right at the centre of the city on O'Connell Street. The Hotel itself was really lovely. Built in 1999, it has a really modern feel yet at the same time has a really classical look. The rooms were really nice and had everything that you would expect to find in a 3 star hotel. The restaurant was wonderful, with a great choice of dishes at a very reasonable price. I ate there each night of my 4 day stay and was never disapointed! I spent some great times in the hotel bar too where there was live traditional music each night and the "craic" was non stop! One of the hotel's best assets would have to be the wonderful folk who work there. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys and they were a great help to me planning my tour of their beautiful city. All in all, the Ripley court offered me great value for money and the biggest of Irish Welcomes!I'll be back...

      ... We had just enough time for lunch before our Dublin trip came to a close. We passed a place called The Hedigan and stopped in for a GREAT Sunday roast. I finally had banger and mash and I was not disappointed at all. I washed it down with a Sweedish cider called Kopparberg that Rob picked out for me. SO GOOD EVERYTHING. I was upset when I scraped the last bit of mash from my plate but we didn't have any time to delay if we wanted to make our ferry back to the UK! ...

      ... quick (extremely overpriced) airport dinner we passed the time before we boarded the flight by playing cards. A lot us us had serious cases of flight anxiety so a distraction was much needed. Once on the plane and in the air, I was ecstatic that I was lucky enough to have a window seat and be able to watch movies also, helping to pass the long flight. Sleep was not attainable, however, which resulted in a severe case of jet ...

      ... could be late as we had a very tight schedule to keep. So it was finally nice to see the ODWs wandering back to the bus with about 5 minutes to spare. Maybe they'd learnt! Or maybe it was complete ********, because come departure time, they were nowhere to be seen, again! A full 10 minutes later and they finally came wandering back. Apparently they went to the end of the street to take photos! Of what exactly? It's a frikking rest stop, not a tourist one! We finally ...

      ... when we were drinking. I think this brought more attention to us….3 young people sitting on the stairs drinking from large paper bags at 3.30 in the afternoon! We had a giggle about it though. 3 rounds later, we headed back to the hostel to have a few drinks in the common room and chill out. The hostel offered nightly pub crawls which we were keen to do. Discussing it in the common room, a local overhead us and offered some intel. He told us that the pub crawls are ...

      Last Full Day in Ireland

      Our last full day in Ireland! It's hard to believe today was our last full day in Ireland already. We have really been enjoying our stay so far and it will be sad for it to come to an end. But before that happens, we had another day of seeing some of the beautiful scenery and the Irish countryside.

      Waking up at the Ballinalacken Castle Country House was great, with views of the Cliffs of Moher right from the room. The morning was quiet and peaceful and with breakfast ...
