In residential Ballsbridge, a local neighborhood with restaurants, pubs, and cafes
The Mespil Hotel overlooks the southern bank of the Grand Canal, within an easy walk of numerous restaurants and a 15-minute stroll from the city center. This area is part of Ballsbridge, an upscale residential neighborhood home to hotels, restaurants, and embassies. Several major sights are within 15 minutes of the hotel. For longer distances, the neighborhood is well served by several bus lines.
The Mespil Hotel offers a fantastic location overlooking the Grand Canal in the upscale Ballsbridge neighborhood. Big, contemporary rooms have comfortable beds with crisp white linens, color accent walls, large windows, and updated amenities such as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Hotel features include an all-day bistro, casual bar, free self-parking (though space is limited), and hearty breakfast. While there's no fitness center, there are many paths along the canal for a jog. Some rooms can feel a little dated, but this hotel offers great value and service in a safe, quiet neighborhood.
