Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean, comfortable option near the IFSC on the north side of Dublin
  • Generous rooms with electric kettles
  • Georgian wing offers huge suites with high ceilings and elegant decor
  • Hotel offers different sleeping configurations for groups and families
  • Welcoming lobby with plenty of cozy seating and a working fireplace
  • Italian restaurant, Il Vignardo with vaulted ceilings, and Le Monde Cafe Bar
  • Convenient location near the main bus station and the Abbey Theatre

Cons

  • Some bathrooms are snug
  • Decor is on the plain side
  • Some noise complaints from nearby bus station and LUAS trams

Bottom Line

The Beresford Hotel IFSC (formerly called Hotel Isaacs) is a mid-sized option located near the Custom House on the north side of the River Liffey. Rooms are a generous size but furniture and decor is basic. The Georgian wing of the hotel is home to huge, bright suites with high ceilings and nicer decor. Some rooms have tube TVs while others have small flat-screens. All rooms have electric kettles and clean bathrooms. The lobby is a comfortable place to relax by the working fireplace and an Italian restaurant, Il Vignardo, has interesting vaulted ceilings. The hotel is also home to a casual bar, Le Monde Cafe Bar. While the location is very convenient for the IFSC, the main bus station, and the Abbey Theatre, some guests complain about noise from the LUAS trams and the frequent buses.

 Location

Near Custom House Quay on the north side of the River Liffey

The Beresford Hotel IFSC (formerly called Hotel Isaacs) is located near the beautiful Custom House on the north bank of the River Liffey. The main bus station (with connecting service to other parts of Ireland) is nearby. It is a short walk away from the IFSC business area, the Abbey Theatre, and O'Connell Street. A longer walk (or short cab ride) will connect guests to Trinity College, Grafton Street, and St. Stephen's Green. This is also a convenient area for utilizing the Dublin Bus system.

Dublin has changed dramatically in the last 15 years. First there was the boom of the Celtic Tiger that brought great development and growth to the city. As a result of this wave of wealth, the city now has a cosmopolitan feel that it never had before. Since the economic bust, restaurants and hotels have generally retained the same quality, but the is less expensive. Dublin has beautiful gardens, museums, and theaters, but it is the everyday things in the Irish capital -- like sitting in a local pub and having a pint -- that are a high point for many visitors.
