    Great location


    We had a great stay at the Morrison. The rooms were modern and comfortable, the staff was helpful and the location was fantastic. It was close enough to the Temple Bar area to make it a quick journey, but far enough that the noise didn't carry that far.

Tips for urban hipsters

by tvdm about Some ultra-trendy haunts for style slaves

Some venues that are very in with the Irish young and wealthy are Viva, Spy and the Morrison Hotel.

You will have to dress to impress, especially for Spy Bar (which also charges a hefty cover charge). Nonetheless, these places are good fun and if you make it inside you can be assured that you belong to a select group of happy party-goers. Of course, all of this is highly unnecessary for the 99.9% of other -and more sensible - people who pay and pose less in practically any other venue!

Best hotel during or visit

Throughout our 9 day trip to Ireland, we stayed at guest houses, small hotels and one historic estate. For the money and service, the Morrison Hotel is a fabulous find. The service was incredible. Although the hotel is designed at the height of contemporary, the rooms are functional and quiet. Most attractions can be walked to. The waiting areas were comfortable with newspapers. The staff makes up for any tiny problems the hotel might have such as no parking (park at the mall down the street) and just a little bit of age showing on some of the floors and no internet service (cafe down the street). I loved this hotel. Skip quaint and uncomfortable. Get a good night sleep and great service for your Euros here. Dublin is a noisy international city but coming home to the Morrison was just the thing after a long day.

Good for over hyped Dublin

by TripAdvisor Member SimonLancaster

A good choice but make sure you dont pay rack rate!!! get a deal and you will be happy. Service is ok the lower nightclub fine (if a bit deserted) maybe Westlife (the supposed main staple of this joint) were doing something else the night I was there. Yes food & drink are expensive but no more so than the rest of the city (sorry town). So I think the hotel would get 5 stars for the D F S / Argos generation mybe 3 1/2 for seasoned travellers who can see past a chocolate brown leather sofa and purple silk scatter cushion... a lillte like Dublin itself

Friendly, Perfect Location

by TripAdvisor Member HampshireReviewer

From when we first walked through the door and had our luggage whisked off us, the staff were exceptionally friendly and helplful in a genuine way and not because they were after a tip.
We were lucky to have a view of the river and Millenium Bridge from our room which was immediately above the busy bar but even on a Friday night there was no noise.
Go for a room rate that includes breakfast - excellent choice but expensive if not inclusive. Good-sized, comfortable room, good shower, excellent location.
Can't think of a criticism.

This was my first time in Dublin and we stayed at the Morrison on the recomendation of a friend. The hotel is beautiful, a lovely place to laze about during the day and have a drink at night. The rooms are modern and spacious and the bathrooms are bigger than required. The best thing about this hotel has to be the staff who bent over backwards for us. Everything was done in double quick time and they even gave us free pastries.
I can't fault this hotel and believe me I am very fussy!


by A TripAdvisor Member

we were very impressed with this hotel in every way! the staff were very nice. THE ROOMS WERE
VERY NICE INDEED! our room was not overlooking
the river liffey im glad actually because the traffic
was quite loud on the main road first thing in the morning. The pictures of the rooms is what you get, the website is not misleading in any way, they were very clean. The minibar was well stocked and very reasonable for a 4 star hotel.
The room service was good we had our breakfast
in our room and we were very shocked the presentation and taste and QUANTITY was 100%
we had a meal in the restaurant one night just to try
it as the restaurant looked stunning and i can tell you the meal was stunning too, very small though but posh (there was free wine with meal)
In the bar we had a ordered a cocktail which was
15 euros dont recommend the cocktails as they came in just a champagne flute was dissapointed.
The hotel was in a very good location literally 3 minutes walk from temple bar.
taxi from airport to hotel cost 31 euros (as it was a airport taxi). return journey in taxi cost 25 euros.

Great Hotel, nice staff.......

by A TripAdvisor Member

Very nice hotel and very professional friendly staff. Very stylish and clean just a couple of gripes other wise I would have given 5 'blobs'

1 - Our room wasn't ready at check in time (2pm)

2- I was allocated a room overlooking the current ongoing building works despite emailing in advance specifically asking the hotel to site me away from these (I'd read about the works on Trip Advisor.

Both these issues were quickly and courteously resolved.

A really great location just 2-3 mins from the 'hubbub' of Temple Bar and 10 to 15 mins from Grafton St. shops.

Very handy for the new tram system aswell.

Only ate breakfast here as there are so many great places to eat in Dublin but breakfasts are excellent.

We booked thru' Sterling breaks and got a great 'all in' deal including a great room and breakfast. Worked out much cheaper than the std. rate.

All in all recommended and we would stay again.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

I booked this hotel at the last minute as a surprise weekend away for my boyfriend and we were absolutely delighted with it! Stunning hotel, fantastic location and its true that the staff were lovely. Breakfast was delicious and very generous and our room was fabulous (particularly loved the walk in shower!).

The bars and nightclub are funky and much of our relaxation time was spent in the Halo cafe bar having tea and reading the papers! We will definitely stay here again, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

The Morrison rocks! Most comfy bed ever and best breakfast

by TripAdvisor Member slambiase

This hotel is worth every star of its 5 star rating. This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Forget the "Heavenly Bed" - this is a nest you will not want to get out of. The ambience is great with cool artwork and style everywhere. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. The location is perfect - right on the Liffey. The staff was great and always had wonderful restaurant and tourist recommendations. Lovely bathroom and products (soap, towels, etc). I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is winner. I found the best rate on their site, so be sure to check there first. Love it!

pub/grub recommendations

by rcsparty

My wife and I are visiting Dublin for a weekend away from the kids in mid-May and I was looking for some recommendations on pubs with traditional music and good grub (not necessarily the same pub). Trying to wade through the 100's of tips was a little overwhelming. We are staying at the Morrison Hotel and would prefer to keep within walking distance. Thanks for your help.

RE: pub/grub recommendations

by orlikins

O'Neills on Suffolk st is a good place to start, the food is good.

You really don't get any trad music in the city centre, except in the tourist crapholes in Temple Bar.

RE: pub/grub recommendations

by AGreg

The Morrison is a right in the city centre, you'll be in walking distance of everything. For some great food in the evening head to Bang Cafe on Baggot st (other side of the Liffey)There are some really good trad pubs around camden st, just of Stephens Green.

by pobblepop

i second O'Neills the food is YUM! they really know how to pile up the plate there! pretty cheepist too..its great especially their turky dinner!

RE: pub/grub recommendations

One of the best pubs in Dublin and one which has trad music 7 nights a weeks is O'Donoghues on Merrion Row (just off St. Stephen's Green). Doesn't have the most varied food menu (soup, sandwiches etc) but there's plenty of good restaurants beside it. Definitely worth a visit.

Another pub (but not as 'authentic') is the Porterhouse in Temple Bar - if you walk across the bridge directly outside the front of the Morrisson Hotel it will take you straight in to the the heart of Temple Bar (on the cnr of Parliment St & Essex St - take a right after you cross the bridge and get into temple bar). They have trad sessions on a Sunday evening and at least one other night during the week with other live bands in between, good food there too.

Thanks for all your recommendations. We are really looking forward to our visit.

RE: pub/grub recommendations

Hi, I hope that you enjoy your weekend. A great pub to visit for food and trad is the Brazen Head. It is on the quays on the oppisite side of the four courts and on your way to the Guinness Brewary which is well worth a visit. The best day to go to the Brazen Head is on Sunday afternoon. Trad Session begins at 1.30pm and finishes at 4pm. There's a great atmosphere but you need to be there early to ensure a seat.

Hope you have a lovely weekend,

RE: RE: pub/grub recommendations

Thanks to all for the recommendations. We had a great time and hit most of the recommendations. O'Donoghues and Brazen Head were a great time and O'Neills was some good food, although I needed to be rolled out of there. We did break down and go to St.John Gogarty's with the rest of the tourists, but timed our arrival with the departure of the tour group, so had great seats.
