Was Good

I found it a pleasant experience. Our room was nice, noise level's were a bit high due to the fact that there was a rugby game on and some of the followers were staying there but it did not go on all night!! We didn't have a problem with them though. Rooms near reception can be very noisy I would expect!
The bar was very nice and relaxed. We did have breakfast delivered to the room and found it satisfactory but we did not have an evening meal.
We would defiantly stay here again.

A good commercial hotel

I have visited this hotel on three separate occasions. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the food is quite reasonable. In my experience, breakfast time is always better that the evenings when the house menu tends to be a bit lacking in imagination with some items appearing again and again! The hotel is well located, being some 2 or 3 miles from the city centre, near to the local DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) station and near to the rugby ground (Lansdowne Road).

Historical Traveller Reviews of Mount Herbert Hotel

Great hotel

from coop-dog
Couple us headed down to Dublin in february for a mates birthday, before doing so i checked out few hotels on tripadvisor and eventually found this great hotel. We where looking for a cheap nights stay but also a comfortable one and this fitted the bill. The hotel was not far away from the Temple Bar area and next to Landsdowne Road..the hotel staff were helpful although i had made a booking in advance they had not recorded my stay so it was lucky enough i brought my record from my e-mail! All in all we enjoyed are short stay and would recommend The Mount Herbert Hotel to anyone..

t stay there.

from Ness2006
When we arrived, we were after check-in time but were kept waiting for nearly 2 hours for our room. Although the main part of the hotel is modern and quite nicely decorated, the rooms didn't look like they had been touched since 1988! dark, dingy furnishings, broken tv remote, lovely view of a brick wall.
the walls are paper thin, and you can hear every other guest in your vicinity. On our second morning, before 7am an emergency door was opened and the ensuing alarm went on for at least ten minutes until I called reception. eventually someone came to turn it off. Around ten minutes later a member of staff walked into our hotel room and walked out again with no explanation. When we complained about our stay when checking out they didn't want to know.
Sandymount is a beautiful area of Dublin, but take my advice and stay somewhere else in the vicinity. I'll certainly never go back to the Mount Herbert!

Wonderful Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have just returned from a weekend in Dublin with 5 girlfriends. We booked through Book Now Limited two triple rooms. We all thoroughly recommend the hotel - both for its facilities and its location.

The dart railway station is literally 5 minutes walk away and the fare into town is just over a euro each! We used the Aircoach service from the airport and that was only 7 euros each (be sure to ask for the Ballsbridge route). The Air coach service is 24 hours so even though our flight was at 6.30 we had no problem getting there.

The hotel itself is set in a lovely wide street - leafy suburbs. It has lovely gardens and grounds with some unusual trees and shrubs.

The bar is excellent and the bar food was good. The decoration of the bar and other communal rooms was very smart and stylish. The hotel offers internet access so we were able to check-in on line for our flight home.

The rooms themselves were spacious, well decorated and lovely and clean. There was always plenty of hot water and tea making facilities which were very welcome!!

All in all - an excellent choice if you want a nice quiet location but within easy reach of the bustle of the wonderful City Centre!

Peaceful location

from CouplefromBrighton
This is a good, basic, well-run hotel with friendly staff, great food and well-stocked bar. The bar and restaurant are bright and modern and overlook lovely gardens. Staff are consistently cheerful and obliging, though they had a bit of trouble coping with large numbers at breakfast when the hotel was full. The wonderful breakfast more than makes up for the search for milk, teaspoons, whatever! The room we had was spacious and spotlessly clean but in need of an update, as are the corridors leading to the rooms. If you are not too put off by the drab magnolia walls and putrid colours of the bed covers you will get a comfortable night's sleep, undisturbed by noise of any kind. The tea making facilities are welcome but if you are fussy about your morning cuppa, take your own tea bags as the ones provided taste, shall we say, a bit cheap! Some bath oil would be nice too. The hotel is in a quiet, mainly residential area but only minutes away from the city centre by Dart train (Lansdowne Road station five minutes walk). Worth noting that if you come back on the Dart in the evening after the gate to the street is shut, the only way out is via the underpass which, when we were there, was flooded because of recent heavy rain. Another point to watch - if someone tells you there is a shortcut to the nearest pubs and shops, be prepared for a long walk! This so-called shortcut takes you along the canal bank and a short walk it is not, though shorter than going through the streets and you do get to see some wildlife on the way! Again, there is a tunnel to walk under, also flooded if there has been the merest drop of rain. All in all, if you don't want to go to the expense of a top class hotel, the Mount Herbert is an excellent choice and well placed for exploring Dublin.

Excellent

from fatbarrell
We stayed in this Hotel whilst in Dublin for a big rugby match recently. I have no hesitation in recommending it especially those attending a match as you are literally 500 yards from the turnstile.
On arrival our booking could not be found and I had no reference number. The receptionist could not have been nicer and we were given a room which was clean , tidy, roomy and overlooking the garden. Breakfast was lovely and staff were polite. We had a drink in the garden before the match which was nice. Our booking was sorted out, Munster won the match ..................

IThis Hotel is exceptionaly busy with supporters but it does not get roudy as the bar and restaurant are very big.

Not impressed.

from A TripAdvisor Member
I'll keep this breif.

Room we had was noisy (judging from the heard of eliphants staying in the room above and corridor noise). Large number of the staff seemed to come from Eastern Europe, I had difficulty in making myself understood on many occasions. On night #2 of our stay we were woken 4 times by an ultra loud fire alarm (located in our room), we later found out that this was due to some drunken football fans larking about (a situation that took 4 hours to resolve !!)in another part of the hotel. We called reception to compain and were told 'Don't worry about it' and that was it, no appology or other reassurance. Breakfast was OK but on one morning the hot buffet had been left to stand and had dried up. Location wise, it is in a quite neighbourhood but don't stay here if you want somewhere convienient to the City, the train journey can be tiedious.

What a bargain!

from DonegalDoll
Friday night in dublin at 2 day's notice within walking distance of the city, free parking and a great breakfast - for only €39! Unheard of. Comfortable, clean, stylish front of house, nice bar/brasserie. The only drawback was no residents bar. Mind you, that probably wasn't a bad thing...

Excellent choice!!

from Seanstrvln
This hotel is located approximately 10 minutes by foot from the Jury's Ballsbridge AirCoach drop off, and literally steps away from the DART Lansdowne Road station. The staff...very friendly, the rooms...very nice and the price...even better! The daily rate includes a HOT Irish breakfast buffet..and if you are not into hot food early in the morning..no worries as they have an extensive continental breakfast as well. The rooms are quite large and that is a plus for those who have spent any time in other Dublin or London hotels! The grounds are beautiful and the area is really nice. I would return in a heartbeat! The hotel has an excellent pub/bar and the prices are equal (if not less than) in the city itself! An even better plus! You will like this place!

Suprising upgrade

from TourGuide
Travelled to hotel in 1994 and was very impressed by the changes made on my recent trip.
The front of house has has a total refit and now rates very highly.
Hotel bar is the highlight of this with very cheap drinks compared to the city centre prices.
Rooms are clean and staff are always happy to help.
Breakfast in included with the room rate and is a nice way to start a morning after the night before!!
Overall I would reccomend the Mount Herbert to anyone travelling to this fine city.

Basic but try it

from fairytail
This hotel is in a great location one metro stop outside the city. Very upscale residential area, 3 blocks from the Dart and bus stop. Safe Area.

The hotel is clean but old. Not run down but kept up. Not renovated either. It's big so it's lively. Family atmosphere, seniors and tourists. A mix. Nothing rowdy. The staff is attentive but all business. Very efficient except for the wake up call. Don't rely on it. Bathrooms are clean and kept up. Beds are so so. Linens are clean and fresh. Watch your step. The configuration of the hallways have many ups and downs, twists and turns on un leveled flooring. The upstairs bar and cafe is great and lively at nite. Very welcoming and comfortable. The prices were very reasonable.

The free breakfast is terrible but some rave about it. Fake scrambeld eggs or real fried eggs, ham, sausgage, baked beans, tomatoes, juice, cereal, yogart, toast,fruit. The presentation and buffet area is not appetizing. The serving staff, foreign youth, maybe students. No ambience but you can live with it. Ignore the smell form the wet rag used to clean around the area of the fake eggs and then used to clean the tables. You know, that egg smell.

They pour the unused milk from the containers on each table back into the milk jug used for the cereal. That's a no no in my book.

Top Local Tips for Dublin

Hostels Only stay at a Hostel if you want to be up all night and have to share unisex bathrooms. There are nice hotels for only a little more than a hostel.

DART There is a DART station 5 minutes walk from the hotel which drops you off in the centre of town

DART I would reccommend using the DART. It is very easy to use & it is alot cheaper than getting a taxi around
