Gleeson's bills itself as a restaurant with rooms. As such it is obvious where the emphasis will be. I have a theory that very few small family run establishments can run what are essentially two different businesses (accommodation & dining). This would appear to be the exception that proves the rule.

Using the hotel professionally I was impressed by the authentic decor that befits a Victorian-style townhouse. The main restaurant is finished in vibrant deep reds with more reproduction period furniture (I presume anyway) than you could shake a stick at. The polished wooden floor and subtle lighting meant that it presented a total package. The patio area between the street and the house had a certain charm although the place lacks a rear garden and rear facing rooms would thus lack a view.

I only walked through the restaurant, but everyone seemed to be tucking in heartily. The menu is downloadable from the website (always a bonus). It couldn't really be described as 'cutting edge' with an emphasis on the traditional favourites such as Irish stew, fish and chips and roasts. Despite that there is clearly some innovation going on with some thoughtfully put together dishes, usually featuring lamb. The chef appears to be really taking the place to a new level.

Didn't set eyes on the rooms but 'traditional and well appointed' would seem to the gist of most reviews. it would be certainly in keeping with the rest of the place.
