Historical Traveler Reviews Wynn's Hotel Dublin
Wynn is a winner!
Having been to Dublin many times, I've stayed in a variety of different hotels from the Brewery hostel to a 5* near Grafton. Wynn's is that perfect little hotel right in the middle. It's a fantastic 3* that benefits from a perfect location. The hotel is right in the heart of Dublin with Temple Bar a short walk away and the shopping centre of Grafton Street just over the bridge. It's also pretty close to the main Stadium if you are there for a concert (as I was).
The service is fantastic and the accomodation is above a 3*. Though the room was on the smaller side, it had all the modern conveniences and a modern bathroom as well! Very hard to find sometimes!
My only complaint is the breakfast. Though a full Irish breakfast was available and usually the norm in Dublin, I found the quality to be poor. The food had very little taste and it was just reheated and dished out cafeteria style. If they improve this I would say this is a very very nice place. Having said that, I would still stay here again because of the other advantages and simply get breakfast on my way to Grafton Street! Enjoy!
In the middle of everything
Took a city-break with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. There are some appalling places to stay in Dublin (and I've stayed in a few!) so we did a lot of research before going.
Wynns is situated in a fantastic spot just off O'Connell Street with a Luas (tram) stop outside and just a short walk from the DART at Tara Street. All the main tourist areas in the centre of Dublin and much further afield are easy to get to. There are also scores of bars and restaurants nearby - particularly good was the Town Bar & Grill on Kildare Street (great food worth the awful service), and Fitzers in Temple Bar.
Our hotel room was spacious and clean with a huge sleigh bed and two window seats overlooking Abbey Street. If you are a light sleeper it may not be the right place as the noise at the weekend from the street can last all night. Breakfast could be embellished by some fresh fruit and pastries!
Wynns is the best
Just had to let someone know what a pleasure it was to stay at Wynns Hotel-seems like they are a hidden little treasure-so glad I found them. The staff are excellent-so attentive & helpful about anything & eveything. The hotel is old-fashioned(and I mean this in a good way) & charming. Beautiful sleigh beds,deep window seats, but a plasma tv & extremely clean,modern bathroom. They give you your messages from a slip of paper in the mail box & the room key is actually a key-some may consider that a drawback but we found it delightful. The location is wonderful as well-right off of O'Connell street-a quieter location than some hotels & yet very easy access to buses & the Luas is right outside the door. the Flowing Tide pub & Sherie's restaurant -two terrific local,non-touristy establishments are just a few steps away too. I just can't say enough about what a pleasing experience we had at this hotel. I will go back there as often as I can. Our whole trip to Dublin was a treasured experience & our hotel stay was a big part of that.Dublin is a city with a lovely mix of old & new and Wynns Hotel
is a perfect example of that as well.
Red 8 at Wynn, good food and very good service!
During my recent visit in Las Vegas, June 7-16 2005, I visited Red 8 at Wynn.
32 (including tip and tax)
Good food and very good service!
just returned on 29th Jan. Its a nice, grand, quaint hotel, centrally located hotel BUT they are getting the kitchen extended and there are pneumatic drills which go on from 8:15 until 18:00. They did not warn us about this when we booked even though I asked if I could have a quiet room!
There was also a disco on Friday (but we did not hear it on the 5th floor).
Ok but a bit disappointing.
I recently stayed at Wynn's for one night only and was impressed enough to log on here and write a review. Located directly beside a Tram stop (which serves the train station) on Lower Abbey Street, Wynn's is a stone's throw from O'Connell Bridge without being right in the centre of the sometimes mayhem of Temple Bar.
The hotel itself is of the old school and could probably do with a bit of an overhaul, however I couldn't fault it really. My room was comfortable and warm, best of all I was at the back of the hotel so it was very quiet. I had requested a bath (some rooms have showers only) and to my delight my bathroom, which was lovely, had a large jacuzzi bath which was perfect after a long day walking around Dublin.
The staff were also pleasant, especially the porter who was very helpful.
Breakfast was good, traditional Irish fare, but I do think they could update their menu with some muffins or croissants.
All in all it was a pleasure to stay there and I will return.
Just returned from a two-night break in Dublin with six people. The hotel couldn't be more centrally located. It is easy walking distance to shops, pubs, restaurants and tourist attractions.
The hotel was quite noisy, especially as they had a wedding reception on the Friday night and a party on the Saturday night. Also, there was quite a lot of noise from the street below from people returning home after they'd had what seemed to be a very enjoyable night! However, there is very little traffic noise as the street is mainly used by trams rather than cars and buses.
The rooms were a bit on the small side but very clean and pleasantly decorated. Tea and coffee facilities are available on request from reception rather than being automatically in your room. Breakfast was generous but not always very hot.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again for the location and the price was reasonable but take ear plugs if you are a light-sleeper!
The Wynns was a great hotel to stay in. The location is perfect. It's right off of O'Connell street in the city center. The room was very nice, no complaints. They were putting in tracks for the new Louis train that is suppose to be up and running this month. Don't know if that will add to the noise or not. Although the construction noise wasn't a problem for me, so I imagine not. The staff was great and very helpful. I stayed in three different hotels in Dublin and this was by far the best.
Wynn's- A good place to stay in town
I stayed at Wynn's in 2003, and rather liked it. The location is great - right in the center of the city. The rooms were serviceable, but certainly not elegant. I recall that the staff was extremely helpful, though. We had a flat on our rental car(with a bent wheel rim), and the garage man took care of getting the tire and wheel fixed for us while we were out sightseeing. The desk attendat was also extremely pleasant.
Although the hotel is a litle noisy, I would definitely stay there again, based on the wonderfully helpful service provided by the employees, the convenient location, and the charming old world atmosphere of the public rooms.
Dublin Sept. 2003
I recently stayed at the Wynn's Hotel in Dublin. The hotel rooms are very comfortable and the staff helpful. However, I would have liked to have seen tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
It is worth checking if there are any parties booked into the function room as rooms above it suffer greatly from noise. There are also major roadworks and upheavals in the centre of Dublin adding to the noise and inaccessibility by car.
The price rose for the period of my stay because of the Hurling Final that weekend, without prior warning.
The good point is that the hotel is very central.

... stuffed and couldn't fit in another mouthful despite dessert consisting of three different amazing little desserts. After dinner was the speeches and the boys all spoke really well with more than a few old funny stories getting a mention. The dancing kicked off not long after the speeches and carried on well into the night. It was great having a room just upstairs to the reception because it meant a short easy walk when the legs were a little weary. It was a fantastic night ...

The last stop for the evening was O'Donahue's Pub for some traditional Irish music! This pub was recommended to us by a cab driver earlier in the day and it turned out to be a great recommendation! We arrived around 9 p.m. and the music was ...
... found seven years ago. Since the bodies are preserved so well, with hair and leather items, archaeologists are able to tell what they wore, what tools they used, what they typically ate in their lives and what their last meal was, how they wore their hair (which had implications on their social status), how they most likely died, how old they were, the list goes on and on. Because of all this information from the bodies, we can also gather information about the society ...
We had difficulty keeping the names and dates straight but it was clear there had been decades-long amateur struggle against England. The Irish did not have a “Benjamin Franklin” who lobbied with the French for military support and the Dutch for financial backing. Even today there is a suppression of historical facts and demolition of historic places. In the US these things would be considered ...

Sneaking under the giants causeway, in the giants house, through the rainbow to end up finally at the pot of gold, just before the enchanted forest. Throughout the tour we learned lots about Irish folklore.
Last night in Dublin, we got ready to leave for Cork early the next morning.
