Historical Traveller Reviews of Bewleys Hotel Ballsbridge
Great hotel near RDSfrom Sheila24
We managed to get tickets for the Leinster v Bath rugby game at the RDS arena which was just behind the hotel.
Several excellent bars and restaurants within walking distance of hotel which we used rather than having to rely on public transport or taxis to go into the city centre at night which is too far to really walk.
Great value, comfortable and clean hotelfrom eurofrog
As for the few criticisms made by other reviewers: true, parking is not for free. However, the hotel does not make a secret of this. On the contrary, anyone who read their website before booking (which is always a good idea!) would have been aware of the fact (and let's face it, €6.50 per day is not that expensive for a hotel car park - on one occasion, I've been asked to pay £18 per day in London.)
True, the Bewley's does not have little baskets with complementary shower gel and single-use shower caps. There is some soap attached to the wall next to the sink, though. If you don't want to bring your own shower gel, or if you feel you have to nick the little bottles of hotel shampoo, then go and find a different hotel that will probably charge you at least twice as much as the Bewley's for a night. However, buying your own shower gel at Boot's would be cheaper...
All in all, for the rate of €99 a night per room, this is a great hotel, much better than many more expensive ones I stayed at. Go for it. The only slight drawback is the location: although surrounded by lots of trees and located in an upmarket part of the city, you either need the energy to walk for about 20-30 minutes until you reach the centre, or you have to rely on the (not-so-frequent) DART train service or the local buses. However, it seemed that the main purpose of the latter having a time table was for the passengers to know that (and by how much) the bus was late. Nonetheless, it is not difficult to get into the centre. Alternatively, there are always taxis, which was a good option for returning after a night out. There is a night bus going to the hotel which costs €4 per person, but we only paid €7.40 for a taxi from Merrion Square in the middle of the night - and there were two of us.
s Delightfrom Jaytraveller
Excellent vallue in ideal locationfrom Johnnymach
The hotel is situated in beautiful grounds in the best location in Dublin.
The staff were most helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and very clean.
The restaurant/ bar O'Connells, is excellent, good food, though the bar could not be described as lively, it is ideal for a couple of drinks in comfort before retiring.
I would recommend Bewleys to anyone with family visiting Dublin.
Liked it alotfrom dpschmidt
one small drawback is the fact breakfast is not included...;-)
Great Value in a beautiful buildingfrom nobodys-child
There was plenty of parking and although you have to pay for it, €6.35 for 24 hours is very reasonable.
One of the earlier reviews claimed there was no soap or shampoo, this isn't true. They are provided from dispensers on the wall, so while you don't get to take them home with you, you don't go dirty either.
The food in the restaurant was uninspiring but at less than 28 euro for four courses, it was good value.
Disappointed by Bewleys, sort out the parking!from A TripAdvisor Member
Always My First Choice!from A TripAdvisor Member
the beds were the most comfortable i think i've ever stayed in with pillows and a duvet to die for
the bathroom was spotless as was the whole hotel
just outside is a bus stop with regular services into the city centre and the aircoach also stops here
the ballsbridge area is lovely
we ate in the restaurant on our last night and had the most fantastic meal with really efficient and friendly service
it cost 27.50 euros each for 3 courses and coffee which is very reasonable for the area
the bar area is very nicely laid out and we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly
will definately be going back
excellent location for landsdowne road rugby ground

Top Local Tips for Dublin
Boxty magic If you brave the touristy scrum in Temple Bar try and eat at Gallaghers boxty House. It is a bit of a cliche but the Irish themed food and friendly Irish staff are lovely.
Literary pub crawl The Literary Pub Crawl provides fun for anyone, even those who don't drink or aren't readers.
Gruel it's not rather than go to the very expensie mermaid cafe on dame st, go next door to its sister cafe - charmingly ramshakle, with origial art on te walls and a fireplace adorned with Worhol soup cans, it serves hearty but sophisticated food all prepared freshly.
