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.

Great Location
The hotel is in a great location and within easy reach of bars, restaurants and shopping. However, the room was a bit on the small side and the breakfast area looked a little tired, unlike the new Reception area which is nice and bright with welcoming staff
