Dining

Breakfast
Breakfast is in Raglans Restaurant. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to the experts. You can enjoy yours in the tranquil ambience of Raglans. Choose between a large continental selection of freshly baked rolls, pastries, fruit, cereals and freshly squeezed juices or if you would prefer something more substantial, help yourself to our full Irish Breakfast buffet. Breakfast is served daily from 7am to 10:30am.
Bar
The Dubliner Pub Established in 1963, the Dubliner Pub has built a reputation for authentic Irish pub grub and craic that draws in many eclectic locals, so you'll be sure to experience first hand the warmth and vitality that is synonymous with any visit to our fair city. With traditional music at the weekends and big screens for all the big games, the Dubliner is the place to enjoy the craic and lively banter into the early hours of the morning.
Barber Shop
In town for an important interview or just want to impress the ladies, then pop along to Gerrard's Barber Shop just inside the door of the Ballsbridge Hotel. Established in 1972 and gaining in reputation since, you can treat yourself to a shave or a new look from a European Barber Championship gold medal winner.

A hotel in receivership

My stay in The Ballsbridge Hotel was the last in my month long trip thru Europe which began and ended in Dublin. All were in hotels in the 3 star to 4 star range. This hotel rated badly compared to the other hotels for the following reasons: No free Wifi (in an age when you can get this anywhere!) Shower and Bathroom amenities are from a squeege bottle which is fastened to the wall. Shampoo and Shower get combined into one (I dont think so, I bought my own). No box of tissues. I stayed for 8 nights. on two occasions I returned late at night to find my room had not been cleaned! The second time I complained and it was cleaned immediately. I checked in alone and was allocated a room with 3 beds, a double and two singles. This is a hotel which is managed by the National Asset Management Agency which means it is receivership. It is being run on a shoe string and it shows. The rubbish bin in the room even had the former name of the hotel from many years ago ' Doyle Jury's Hotel'. I would not stay here again

Family break in Dublin

While we found the hotel good value we havea few issues concerning our stay 1. No hotel information pack in our room. We told receptionist after arrival but we never got it. 2. Could not open widnow for fresh air as it was too firmly secured. 3. No radio service available in our room 4. Major renovation work in main dining area which limited your options. We were not told about this when we checked our reservation 48 hours before arrival.5.First evening we ordered in the Bar a light snack of soup & 2 sandwiches which we cancelled after waiting 25 minutes. poor communciations

The hotel is in a brilliant location

The hotel is in a brilliant location and buses on local routes 4 and 7 pass the hotel from Central Dublin. The Dart station at Lansdowne Road is a 10 min walk away. Had a great stay at the hotel and the buffet breakfast even though not included was good. If the prices remained low for rooms I would stay again. In fact I am booking again for the autumn.

Location is fantastic. Just up

Location is fantastic. Just up the road from Rolys Bistro and the Aviva Stadium. And a short enough walk from the centre of Dublin. Great location. The hotel it's self is cheap and cheerful. We got a great rate and were happy that we got what we paid for. The staff were friendly. The pillows were on the skinny side. If I get the great rates again, I'll be back. No real complaints at all and I'll recommend it to friends.

A large hotel just three stations

A large hotel just three stations from central Dublin on the 'Dart' railway with spacious rooms and large public areas. On arrival we asked at reception for the tourist information and map, which they advertise on a poster, but they had none available and the reception staff were mostly foreign nationals and didn't know the area so it was difficult to get directions. In other aspects the staff were friendly and helpful. There is a pleasant bar and restaurant, plus a small attached supermarket. Food and drink prices are costly, but Ireland is an expensive county to visit and the bar and restaurant prices were within the price range of nearby restaurants. Overall, a pleasant and comfortable hotel for a short break.

It was within walking distance

It was within walking distance to town which was nice, but also there was a bus right down the street from the hotel. Don't be fooled by the low cost of the hotel, the rooms we big and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful.
