How to Get There
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 9 days just recently on vacation (love Dublin and Ireland). I am a Hilton Diamond member, so stay at way too many Hilton properties. This is one of the Hilton properties that is a pleasure to stay in and is highly recommended. The current decor is fresh, modern and comfortable. Check in was fast and pleasant and we were allowed to get into our king river view room early. The room was ample in size for European standards and was very clean and tidy. The bathroom was also spotless, well-stocked and relatively large. Our room was VERY quiet at night even though our window overlooked a busy street and the river. For those who have to have some fan noise and a cool room at night (like me), the air conditioning was effective and kept the room very comfortable - you could adjust the fan for very little or more noise as desired. The property is about as ideally located as you can find in Dublin - O'Connell Street is just a couple of blocks away, there is a shopping mall for travel needs a block away, and all the major city sights (museums, Temple Bar area, excellent restaurants) are an easy walk from this hotel. There are 3-4 bridges across the Liffey very close including one half a block away. I was very impressed with the service in the hotel - very pleasant, well-informed, and efficient. A special thumbs up to the bartending staff (one was a middle-aged Irish gentleman who was very funny and helpful - beard and mustache - he worked in the evenings while we were there - terrific). The breakfast was generally well-prepared with a buffet (or menu choices if you want something else). The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating and the manager (relatively tall blonde lady of, I think, eastern European background) was especially attentive and friendly. We did eat dinner in the hotel once and the food was very good and of high quality. I also had the Morrison Ice Cream Sunday (specialty there) at the urging of the bartender - really good. The concierge made every attempt to be helpful but was somewhat hard to understand at times (non-Irish - many of the staff are non-Irish - very international staff which is great). He made good restaurant and attraction recommendations and was very professional.Overall, this hotel is definitely at the high end of the Hilton properties and I would gladly stay there again without hesitation. Excellent.
This hotel has been totally revamped in recent years to now have all things cool. Neat painting on walls, slogans projected on walls, lots of charging stations in the rooms, the latest in plumbing fixtures, fun bar scene. Hotel rooms are quiet however. Great location across the Liffey from Temple Bar. Bar and restaurant on ground floor, which may be convenient, but we didn’t find it very appealing - too many other options nearby. If you are driving, they offer discounted parking in a garage 1 block away (although it can be full on busy periods and then ???). More expensive than other Dublin Hilton properties which I guess covers the cool stuff. Would stay here again for its convenience and great facilities.
Very good hotel. Nice rooms with excellent beds. Nice staff. Breakfast supervisor remembered next day how we drank our coffee. Little cold in public areas and specific part of breakfast room. Life music in the bar was too loud.. (or maybe we're just too old..). Purple interior design is not everyone's taste. Funny thing is that hotel has been refurbished not too long ago, but lots of previous dated interior parts had to stay (funny tables in breakfast room).
This was my second stay at the Morrison this year, and I was very satisfied. The staff is friendly, the hotel/rooms are nice and clean, and the location is EXCELLENT.
The beds are still quite firm, so keep that in mind.
Just on the north side of the River, it's 2 blocks from the Temple Bar district. Feel like a movie? The cineplex is about 4 blocks north. You can get to just about anything you would want, in under a 10 minute walk.
Overall, I was very please (again) with my stay at the Morrison and will continue to stay here for my work trips.
We had a very nice room with river view, but the room was very small.
Location of the hotel is excellent, 2 minutes away from the Temple bar area, but not noisy.
Good attentive front desc.
