Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Quiet location in the safe, leafy Ballsbridge neighborhood
  • A brick 19th-century building set on attractive grounds
  • Spacious, bright rooms with electric kettles
  • Modern, big lobby with plenty of cozy lounge seating
  • Large on-site restaurant and bar with seasonal outdoor patio
  • Located near the DART train for easy access to central Dublin
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Not within walking distance of the city center
  • No fitness center or spa
  • Rooms have generic decor and some old tube TVs

Bottom Line

The Bewley's Hotel is housed in a striking, 19th-century building that was once a school and is surrounded by attractive grounds. It is beautiful and grand from the outside, and makes a great first impression with a big, modern lobby full of cozy seating. However, rooms aren't quite as modern. While they are clean and spacious, decor is generic and some have old tube TVs. All rooms have electric kettles, and suites offer contemporary decor and updated bathrooms. Hotel amenities include a large restaurant and bar with a sunny patio for the summer months. Bewley's is a good value pick located in the safe, upscale neighborhood of Ballsbridge, a 10-minute drive from the city center. The DART train is close by for easy transportation to centrally located sights.
