The Feel of the Irish

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 4, 2009

And we are back in 2011 for times No 4 and 5.

This is the fifth time we have stayed in this beautiful hotel which is one of the oldest Georgian hotels in Dublin. Do not worry if there is no ramp and some stairs as you will find Paddy or Clive waiting at the door to help you. And the staff are all friendly and helpfull. Is being proved in 2009 as our booking in Killarney was all wrong and we had to change dates at Buswells. Oh me!oh my! What a drama and they were so nice about it all.

Trumans Restaurant serves beautiful meals 4 days a week but there is always food from the bar and room service. Breakfast is buffet or cooked option.

Just keep in mind what you miss out on when compared to more modern "faceless" hotels is made up in the joy of being in the wonderful surrounds. A "morning room"...just fancy sitting there sipping your morning tea and reading the paper.

Oh if you do not have a computer you will find one of the "euro gobbling" monsters waiting for you. Other hotels have the same ones so head for the internet cafe in Grafton Street. Free wifi is available now in most rooms (2011)

Unique Quality: Well our first room did not have a view but it is beautifully appointed and has a BATH...a must for me to soak in when travelling. On our return we had a smaller double with a view of the street.

The next time our first room had a safe as well and was quite large. I think all rooms are priced as standard but some are a bit small with only a shower. There is a brochure with "rack rates" but you can usually do better than that. There are some rooms for 3 apparently and a premium suite but I have not seen the latter.
They will allocate the best they can especially if you are staying a while.

I really want a bath, wifi, and a safe but this does not always happen.

Sometimes it takes a while for the hot water to flow owing to the layout of the old hotel.

But what I loved the first time we arrived was the sight of guests sitting in the foyer and lounge areas sipping tea and eating scones. You could see in from outside just how nice it was to be in there by the warm fire.

Directions: Near Trinity College and the Passport Office. You can walk in to Grafton Street and shops no problem.
It is close to the DART.. Dublin Pearse Station

Relax in Style at The Buswells

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

This was a great hotel and I would stay here again without hesitation.

The room was clean and comfortable and there was a good choice on offer for breakfast.

The ambience was this hotels best feature. From the moment we walked in we just felt 'at home'.

The hotel bar was used by non residents which added to the atmosphere.

It is a stones throw away from Dawson Street which is well worth a visit for a few drinks. Dawson street has some very big and busy bars away from the Temple bar area.

It is also only a stroll away from Grafton street. So, ladies, do your best with the shopping and when you have too many bags to carry - take them back to the hotel and then set off again!

Directions: Get off the aircoach on Kildare Street and Buswells is literally opposite.

A short walk from Grafton Street

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 8, 2006

This was a very charming hotel in a quiet Georgian area of Dublin. They say it's one of the oldest Dublin city centre hotels, comprises of five Georgian townhouses.

It's in the very convenient location close to Grafton Street, National Museum, National Gallery, St. Stephen's Green, etc.

Check the site for booking specials.

Unique Quality: The breakfast (came with a room booking) was a buffet style, but good. : )
