Stayed in this Hotel at the end of November for five days, Good Hotel, spacious & clean rooms. We arrived about 10.30 and our room was ready. The breakfast is a buffy, continental or full cooked with Juices, tea & coffee, this restaurant is not small as a previous review said, as is has two other rooms off the buffy area. Didn't try the Luch or Dinner menus. Would recommend this hotel it is really close to most locations.
On the down side nothing to do with the hotel, I was deeply disappointed with Dublin, if you like to shop it's great, if you want to view old buildings great. Other than that not much to see, thank goodness for Temple Bar, it's a great area you can get good food a drink & live music. Thank goodness the hotel room was nice, saw a lot of it.

I would come back to this hotel & would recommend to anyone. As for the weather it was lovely as stayed August bank hol weekend for us Britts, 2005

After entering the attractive and clean lobby we were treated well by the desk staff who had a message waiting for us from a friend who planned on visiting. The room afforded a pleasant view of the street, had nice furniture (the bed was very comfortable as well) and included a good-sized bathroom. Outdoor noise never became an issue. Although we had wanted to be slightly closer to the 'centre' of town, The Stephens Green Hotel was well situated both within Dublin and with what we ended up doing during our visit. I would not hesitate to stay there again on a future visit.

We loved this hotel in the heart of Dublin. Great location across from the park and we were able to walk all over Dublin, visiting shops during the day and pubs at night. The staff was great!

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Stephens Green Hotel

Excellent position

from Joanna44
My husband and I have just returned from a last minute visit to Dublin and to this very good hotel. It is well located within easy access to everything by foot. The hotel is right on a busy junction, but it honestly didn't spoil the stay as the traffic noise wasn't a problem. Our room was spacious and very clean. The shower was superb, especially as I had a headache when we arrived and wanted to freshen up. Nothing was too much trouble and fabrizio on the desk ran up to the pharmacy for me and delivered paracetamol to the door! Excellent service and very friendly staff. The breakfasts were good and ample and the bar was also very nice. I would thoroughly recommend staying there.

Quality Hotel

My girlfriend and I stayed in this hotel in July and got a really good room only deal. The hotel facilities are top class and the staff friendly and helpful. The room was large, well equiped and comfortable. The location is great, conveniently close to Grafton Street but on the quiet side of St Stephens Green. Which means you can get a good nights slepp (should you want it).

Brilliant hotel for a weekend break in Dublin

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've just come back from a weekend in Dublin where we stayed in this hotel. We chose it for its location (very central) and were not disappointed: it is just 1 minute walk from the shopping centre and Grafton street, 10 minutes to Trinity, the Dublin city buses stop just round the corner. All in all a perfect location for a central Dublin hotel.
THe staff was very friendly, the room was spotless and comfortable. The only minor issue was the road traffic but that was not too bad when the windows were closed.
We made a point of using the gym and it was good, nothing fancy but the main equipment was there!
The breakfast was lovely too !

Would defnitely stay there again ! Highly recommended

Excellent Location, Good Bar, V Good Bed

from MarkCMP
We stayed at the Stephen's Green with some friends, and had come over for a gig at Whelans on Wexford St; from that point of view, and from an exploring Dublin point of view, the hotel is in a superb location- in the centre of things, but set away from the noise and clubs etc of Grafton St and Temple Bar.

So- the room (a junior suite @ E250 incl service, tax and breakfast) was comfortable, had spot-on air-con, a biig, comfy bed, two TVs and a couple of decent sofas.

The ads for the porn channels on the TVs were startlingly big, which makes me wonder exactly what audience they are courting- no problem with them supplying the material, just suprised at the emphasis...!

The water pressure on the shower was impressive, and is just the kind of thing you need after walking the city streets.
No mini-bar, however, only an alledged fridge that wasn't cold.

The bar was large and airy, with a good selection of gin, whisky and wine, but the staff there were grumpy and not especially helpful.
The reception staff were similar, although Ciara was pretty decent and Carlos was superb.

Breakfast was awful- v poor quality ingredients, food that had been around for a good while. Don't take a room rate with breakfast- go to any one of the excellent cafes within spitting distance of the hotel.
We found "CYO" on Wexford St particularly good- especially the breakfast smoothies..!

Very nice hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was in Dublin last weekend with my husband. I finished the business end of the trip early, so we arrived in Dublin a day earlier than expected. I called the hotel to see if we could have an additional night, but they were booked. The manager on duty took my cell phone number and called other hotels in Dublin until she found us a room. She then called me back and gave me the name and number of a hotel manager that had a room for us.

We ended up at the Brooks Hotel for the night, which was a lovely place and centrally located. We switched to St. Stephen's the next night as planned and were very happy we did. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was nicely decorated and spacious. The bathrooms were clean and large. They had high-speed internet access and even had an outlet in the wall for American plugs.

The staff was very helpful and friendly throughout our stay and the location was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this hotel when traveling to Dublin.

Great hotel if you get the right room.

My wife and I stayed at the Steven's Green Hotel on a combination business/pleasure trip In April 2005. This was the second time we have stayed there and I have to say that the room you get makes all the difference in the world! On our previous visit we were in a King room (1316) which was nice but it is located across from the housekeeping office so in the morning noise was an issue. This time we stayed in a terrific room (1500) which had its own deck (accessed via double French doors) overlooking St. Steven's Green Park. Being located at the end of the hallway far from the elevator the room was perfectly quiet. The bathroom was nice and had a deep soaking tub as well as a separate shower. Although the room wasn’t huge we found that there was enough space to relax and we never felt cramped. Having North American style electrical sockets was handy and high speed internet made emailing home a breeze. We also liked having a mini fridge, personal safe, iron and ironing board in the room. The breakfast was ok but we usually went elsewhere to eat all our meals. The Magic Glasses Bar has a great atmosphere but is more along the lines of an American hotel bar than an Irish pub. In spite of that, the Guinness was still terrific!! Located only a short walk from the many restaurants and stores on Grafton Street I think it would be difficult to beat the location. If our travels lead us back to Dublin some day I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Would Stay Again!

from SJWO98
I've recently returned from the St Stephens Green hotel after a short city break in Dublin with my wife, and I have to say, was very impressed with the venue.

Our room, a twin, was tastefully decorated with all the amenities you'd expect from a modern 4 star hotel. Our room didn’t have a ‘view’ as such, but this didn’t in any way detract from the quality of the accommodation. I was able to see a junior suite during my stay and would definitely recommend an upgrade if you're looking to make your visit truly special for what appeared to be a reasonable rate per night at the check-in desk.

The adjoining Magic Glasses hotel bar had a very welcoming ambience about it and was the perfect place for a nightcap or a gentle start to the evening’s proceedings. The gymnasium in the basement is small but functional and served as a great way to work off the excesses of the night before. We also found the staff to be accommodating and courteous throughout our stay.

The hotel itself is ideally located in a nice area of the City, within a very short walk of the Grafton Street shops, Trinity College and on the edge of the beautiful St Stephens Green. It's also very accessible via the (rather plush!) Air Coach from Dublin Airport which saves the hassle of arranging a taxi when you arrive.

One of its biggest advantages was its quiet locale - being far enough removed from the all-night hustle and bustle of the Temple Bar revelers but still close enough to walk over and join them of an evening! (For traditional ‘diddly dee’ style Irish music, the massive Arlington Hotel/Bar just off O'Connell Street is an absolute must see!)

In terms of food, we found the self-service breakfast to be above average and a welcome start to the day.

We only ate in the Pie Dish Restaurant on one occasion and I must confess, it was the only disappointment in an otherwise excellent stay - the food being of an extremely high quality but the restaurant service, while always polite, was unfathomably slow (30 minutes to receive our starters after ordering and 1 hour 40 minutes to reach dessert which we then vetoed out of frustration). Had the service not been so surprisingly poor, I would probably have been less sensitive to the ‘quality-over-quantity’ fare being served - those with hearty appetites, take note: this restaurant my not be for you.

That said, without wishing to labour the point (it could very well have just been a ‘bad day at the office’), I still feel that this solitary bad experience aside, overall this hotel was a very good base point for a short break. I can't offer it a better compliment than to say my wife and I will happily stay there again if we return to Dublin.

I stayed in Dublin over a long weekend in early February 2005. I met up with many people during this trip, and I travelled extensively throughout the Dublin area, even up to Belfast on one day. I booked my hotel through a website called AirMiles, and the hotel was recommended to me personally by one of their agents.

This hotel is one of an excellent group of hotels (The O'Callaghan Group) comprising a few 4* and 5* hotels in Dublin - I had high expectations. Generally the hotel was pretty decent. Clean and functional. Modern rooms and good house-keeping. It is in a good location across from the lovely St Stephen's Green and a short walk to Grafton Street, Temple Bar and other sites. It is located on a fairly busy street which is a bit noisy at night but not more than any other in a Dublin central location I suppose. Apart from slight traffic noise the room was quiet, warm and comfortable.

However, on two successive mornings my room service breakfast was delivered late - one morning more than 30 minutes late and the other more than 10 minutes late. And when you are in town on a schedule, as I was, this was not acceptable - especially when you expect to have a leisurely breakfast but instead have to gulp it down in 2 minutes in order to make it to an appointment in time. No explanation was given to me - the staff were distinctly unwilling to help.

The staff at the hotel were very grim, not very friendly. No turn-down service was delivered despite being stated in the brochures in the hotel rooms. There was no minibar in the room and no dvd player. The hotel bar did not have much atmosphere.

For the price that one pays to stay at a hotel of this calibre I found these small discrepancies to be disconcerting and they have not left a good overall impression of my stay at the Stephen's Green Hotel.

Excellent hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for 4 nights and found it execellent. Our room was ready by 12.30, even though the stated time was 2pm, which got us off to a good start. The service throughout was outstanding. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Didn't use the restaurant but the Magic Glasses Bar we used every evening to finish off our day with a nightcap, and was very welcoming. The location must be one of the best in the city, overlooking the Green and so convenient for all the major attractions. If I ever return to Dublin I would stay here.

We took the Aircoach from (and to) the airport , which proved to be a very efficient service and saved us a lot versus a taxi.

Recommend Cafe Java (Anne St South) which has a great breakfast menu and food is excellent. Kylemore Cafe on the first floor of the St Stephens Green Shopping Centre also did good omelettes.

Good restaurants were Gallagher's Boxty House (Temple Bar) for great traditional Irish food and good atmosphere, Captain America's Cookhouse & Bar (Grafton St) for brilliant rock and roll memorabilia with good food and excellent service, and Fitzsimons Restaurant (Essex Street/Temple Bar) for excellent food and service (this one doesn't seem to get a mention in any of the guides, don't understand why). The pub downstairs can get noisy/busy but the restaurant is peaceful and sophisticated (but not expensive).

Dawson's Lounge (smallest pub in Dublin), and Brazen Head (oldest pub) are well worth a visit. Also Ely Wine bar for good wine and food (though not cheap). Finally visit the Knightsbridge Bar in the Arlington Hotel for a free night of Live Irish Music and Dancing.

Top Local Tips for Dublin

You may skip Dublinia. I went to Dublinia because I wanted to take a glimpse at life in the medieval times in Dublin. However, the whole attraction seemed cheap to me, an absolute tourist trap. Maybe kids will enjoy it, but for a couple in our thirties it was wasting our time and money.

Taxis Fare Just a Warning - Taxis fare from the Airport cost 30 Euro's and when we asked the hotel to book a taxis back to the airport it Cost 38 Euro's.

Don't go to Temple Bar Area Instead, go to the Grafton Street area
