About Hotel Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin

Historic hotel with free WiFi in Dublin's O'Connell Street

By The Spire of Dublin

The 200-year old Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin is a capital city landmark in its own right, located in the center of Dublin's O'Connell Street and a stroll from the River Liffey. It's a 30-minute drive from Dublin Airport, and easy to track down, with the 121-meter Millennium Spire steps away.

The GPO and Abbey Theater

O'Connell street is filled with culturally significant sites, such as the General Post Office, and The Abbey Theatre, founded by Irish poet W. B. Yeats. It's less than a 10-minute walk to reach other popular spots such as the Ha'penny Bridge, Temple Bar, and Grafton Street.

Whiskey lover's paradise

The hotel is home to Writer's Lounge Bar, plus Toddy's Bar & Brasserie, with one of the largest whiskey collections in the city. Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin dazzles guests with original Waterford crystal chandeliers, and has secure car parking, plus room service on hand.

Free WiFi and cable

All 300 rooms are slightly different, but they all have features such as pillowtop beds, free WiFi, and flat-screen TVs with cable channels. Tea and coffee-making facilities are included, and some suites have balconies with stunning views of the city.

Hotel Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin
Booked a deluxe room and some mix up at the start but was easily sorted by the Hotel. The Gresham Hotel in Dublin is so steeped in Irish History I was looking forward to the stay and was not disappointed we stay in the collage rooms - nice Just a small the new bathroom is lovely but there is no place to place a toilet bag etc Would I stay again yes in a heart beat....... Thanks for a great stay.

Central Location
Had a one night stay. Very comfortable and central location. Easy access to the city and to plenty of shops in the area. Had dinner in the bar which was very enjoyable. They have an early bird option also which was reasonably priced. Very good breakfast selection. Will be back.

Perfect for central Dublin
Back in Dublin for a wedding. Really handy central location, was in on the 16 bus from the airport in 30 mins although that was after rush hour. There seemed to be loads of loud mouthy English groups so maybe a smaller hotel might suit if you want to avoid feeling like you're on the set of Eastenders or Coronation Street during breakfast.
