Fantastic location between St. Stephens Green and Merrion Square. Very comfortable room. Visited bar late in the evening with my son and nephew ,very relaxing after busy Dublin city centre.
Unfortunately it was fully booked for my next visit 2 weeks later, but hardly the fault of the Hotel
Staff were great. Location was excellent. Although centrally located it was quiet.
The room was a little small, which is not unusual for European hotels.
I arrived jet lagged before dawn (!) and the staff went out of their way to welcome me, serve me tea, suggest activities while I waited, and get me an early room
Erin was a great help. Beds, room were great
Great staff, location right in middle of town but quiet, excellent value for money. Room is small but ideal for solo-traveller and comes with wonderful, new bathroom. Sparkling clean too!
Situated in the very heart of Dublin, you will find the magnificent Buswells Hotel. This stunning venue rests mere minutes away from local landmarks such as the National Museum of Ireland, Trinity College, the buildings of Dail Eireann and the National Library of Ireland. Buswells Hotel rests on a quiet street that is also close to restaurants and shops.
The building that is now known as Buswells Hotel dates back to the 1800s. Prior to taking on its current name, it was known as the Queen's Institute for the Training and Employment of Educated Women. The first of it's kind on European soil; this groundbreaking college was founded by Dublin businessman Henry Walker Todd and Mrs. Anne Jellicoe, a campaigning Quaker from Mountmellick. By the 1880s the venue had become known as Buswell's Hotel.
Today, the hotel is styled with an elegant and European flare. The windows are draped with luxurious linens, patterned furniture is spread throughout the building and elegant chandeliers and lamps can be found in each room. The walls of the common areas are covered with colorful artwork and large windows that allow lots of natural light to flow in.
Guests are invited to stay in one of the many rooms, with plush bedding, high ceilings, soft carpeting and lots of space to entertain. Each guest room includes complimentary wifi, bottled water, ironing board, tea and coffee.
Guests are also welcome to dine at one of the two on-site restaurants, Truman's Restaurant and Buswell's Bar. Each offer a unique menu of traditional Irish cuisine and top-notch service.
