Historical Traveller Reviews of Mount Herbert Hotel
Great hotelfrom coop-dog
t stay there.from Ness2006
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 Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 locationfrom CouplefromBrighton
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
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
Excellent choice!!from Seanstrvln

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 itfrom fairytail
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
