Historical Traveller Reviews of Butlers Town House Hotel
Bfrom A TripAdvisor Member
All in all, don't expect a great hotel but an upmarket B&B.
Just Awful!from A TripAdvisor Member
Nice but not greatfrom wafwil
The good-the staff was very friendly, and the drawing room/lobby is wonderful. They have an honor bar system and 24 hour room service...so sitting in the lobby having snacks and a drink was very nice.
The location was fine....a quick DART trip to the center of town...but far enough away to avoid all of the traffic.
Small and personal!from TMLF
Simply the Best!from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a hotel that we will most definitely return to. Originally we had been booked in to a neighbouring hotel, which was horrific! Butlers saved the day, they went out of their way help us out of our unfortunate situation, the staff are a credit to the hotel.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering staying in the Ballsbridge area.
Beautiful Townhousefrom A TripAdvisor Member
I only gave this hotel 4/5 because of the distance from the center of town. Depending on where you're going, the walk is 20-45 minutes. It's also not to safe to walk back from town at night, but cabs were easy to find.
Historical and lovelyfrom aprille
Because it's such an old property, it didn't have that new-and-shiny, spic-and-span appearance of a more modern hotel, but it definitely felt well taken care of. I would definitely go back. The private car park was a definite plus.
Horrified!from A TripAdvisor Member
First, its location is further from the city center than I thought.
It's a very brisk 20+ minute walk to the sights you want to see downtown. This alone was just disappointing but of course tolerable.
Although we reserved a non-smoking room, when we were shown to our room I noted an ashtray on our desk and they had opened the windows to probably air it out. When I explained this to the hotel worker, she said "all rooms are basically non-smoking. The ashtray is there just in case people need it." Then, it wouldn't be a non-smoking room, would it? Also, it was very dusty. There was almost enough dust on the telephone and nightstand to draw your name in it. Plus, our view consisted of the garbage cans outside in the alley. We asked for another room. This next one looked clean at least and had no ashtray so we dropped our stuff off, and when we returned from sightseeing, took a 2 hour nap. I was pretty itchy and thought it was maybe the blanket, but getting up I noticed the bugs. Yes, Bugs! We were both crawling with little bugs and found them all over the headboard and under the sheets of our bed. I have never been so disgusted in my life. It was late enough (about 7pm) that the manager wasn't on site, but when my husband brought the ass't manager in to see the bugs, he said they've never had that problem in that room before. This begs the question: have they had this problem in other rooms? Luckily we found another place that could take us on short notice and of course we got out of there as fast as we could (after I showered the bugs off of course).
I'm still itchy thinking about it.
Best hotel ever!from A TripAdvisor Member
Beautifully decorated! Good location!from A TripAdvisor Member
It's located just blocks from the American Embassy, and within walking distance of Dublin attractions like St. Stephens Green and Trinity College. Great Irish pub just around the corner. We never had to hire a taxi, except to get to the airport. Whenever we get a chance to return to Dublin, we will certainly stay at Butler's again.
Top Local Tips for Dublin
Use the Air Coach Use the Air coach for your trip to and from the Airport, cheap, 7 euro's single trip they also do a return ticket, they go every 15 minutes very reliable, you can also book online. The coach is air conditioned, leather seats, lots of space and non-smoking.
Varirious good restaurants All food types available in all parts of the city. Breakfasts were the best. Good wines and a wide variety of beers.
tour buses these are brolliant and well worth the money.
