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.
