The Gibson Hotel- Review.

Recently Peter and I stayed in The Gibson Hotel in Dublin. Its in a part of town that both of us really like and hope to live around at some point in the future! For anyone not sure where it is, its situated in the Point Village, at the end of the Quays near the Port Tunnel. Its also right beside Peter and I's favourite cinema, The Odeon Point Village. We love it there because its huge, has a Costa and is almost always quite empty- what more could you ask for?

We only stayed here for one night and we really enjoyed it. The hotel is definitely aimed towards business people and has a very modern vibe to it. They've also recently finished an art piece entitled 'The Magnificent 7' painted outside the hotel that you can see while going up the escalators to reception, I'll link it here.

I really like the whole design of the hotel, they had these adorable pig statues in reception (which I forgot to get a photo of!) and I really like this print below in the bathroom. It also must be noted that the shower was amazing, it was like one of those rainforest showers and it was huge! My favourite touch though was the Oscar Wilde quote stuck to the shaving mirror; "Be yourself, everyone else is already taken". I thought this was a really cute and quirky touch! The whole room had a grey and green palette that I really liked, and it felt really cosy!

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and I would stay again! Its directly on the Luas line and takes only five minutes to get into the city centre. Its also within walking distance, and would only take 15/20 minutes which is a really nice walk along the Quays when the weather is nice. I would highly recommend this hotel for someone who wants to stay somewhere really lovely and not too far from the centre of Dublin!

    1. Thanks so much! We'll definitely be in again, either to stay or to try the restaurant which we didn't get a chance to do last time!
