Bottom Line

The Gresham Hotel is centrally located on the north side of the River Liffey in Dublin's city center. Dating back to 1817, the property has some refurbished areas, while others could use an update. The hotel is classic and warm with decent-size rooms featuring minibars, electronic safes, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. While standard rooms could use refreshing, superior rooms and suites feature big bathrooms with separate walk-in showers and soaking tubs; the Elizabeth Taylor suite has a balcony. Hotel amenities include two restaurants, a casual bar and brasserie serving afternoon tea, and a lounge with street views. However, the fitness center is small and there's a fee for self-parking.

Map of The Gresham Hotel Dublin

The Gresham has a central location on historic O’Connell Street, a short walk from major attractions on the south side of the River Liffey such as Temple Bar and Trinity College. The street is lined with handsome old buildings, such as the 19th-century General Post Office. Many bus lines run along this wide avenue, so access to other parts of the city is easy and fast, including the airport, to which guests can take the bus that stops right outside the hotel.

Once the main stage of Ireland’s political struggles, O’Connell Street is now Dublin’s main thoroughfare, home to hotels, a decent shopping scene, and casual restaurants. The main appeal of this area is the number of fantastic theaters in the neighborhood, including the Abbey Theatre and the Gate Theatre.
