For many years now Clayton has been our go to address to stay in Dublin when visiting my husband's family. So when looking for wedding locations Clayton's (Thomas Prior Hall) was top of the list. Both the day an the planning towards it were an absolute joy. As we live in London we took 2 years to plan the wedding and most communication happened via e-mail. Even though there were a few changes in event managers and teams, all of them were 100% up to date when taking over. In the last few months S... Read more

Stayed one night (£216!) whilst the staff are lovely, the hotel facilities are dreadful. Room was dark and stark. The residents bar closes at 11pm. Little coffee bar is a good idea but not well stocked. Good setting for a hotel, just doesn't deliver.

I was attending the IATA AGM for three days (2 nights) and it was perfectly situated near to the RDS. The staff were very pleasant, approachable and eager to please. Top marks for the concierge team. A very close 2nd were the breakfast room staff. Whilst it wasn't the Intercontinental across the road, the Clayton Hotel Ballsbridge was 3-4* facilities, and 5* staff.

My husband and I decided on a family trip to Dublin. We had three Kids in tow aged 3, 7 and 11. This hotel is one of the most reasonably priced in Dublin. We were out all day, back in the hotel for about 9pm to put the kids to bed. They loved it which was the main thing. Comfortable rooms. A decent breakfast, with parking.

We were able to catch the Air Coach right from Dublin airport to the hotel for ?14pp return, which was very convenient.

I always choose Clayton Hotel - Ballsbridge when in Dublin. From the amazing building absolutely dripping with history and brilliant architecture to the divine food and service, it makes the transition of returning to the States less traumatic. Although not in the City Center, which I think of as a plus, it is an entirely pleasant and enjoyable walk to St. Stephens Green and Temple Bar. The DART location only blocks away is a great way to get around as well.

The Clayton was booked by us for hotel rooms during a very busy conference but also for a very important board meeting. Sarah in catering was extremely helpful and delightful to correspond with. She took care of the business meeting room and lunches for all including special requests. The front desk staff were very friendly and professional. Rooms were quite comfortable, clean and serviced properly. Morning buffet was quite good with traditional Irish fare. Wifi worked well. Thank you.

I stayed here over 3 rainy days in June. The team at reception were efficient and welcoming, my room was clean and spacious. The restaurant had a good selection at breakfast and I ate in the restaurant twice for dinner. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Parking was plentiful in the underground car park, if a little tight on the turns into the lower floor. The hotel is near to the Dart. If I was back in the area, I would stay here again.

Excellently positioned in Dublin with close to perfection services this is the place to stay when in Dublin. A very interesting aspect is the history os the place which I recommend you read during your stay. The only thing to improve is the restaurant menu but, with a wide range of pubs and restaurants situated very close to the hotel, getting something to eat will not be a problem.

A beautiful building belies the general state of this hotel. I was in a newly-refurbished room but the windows would not open more than an inch or so, the bathroom sink was set too far back so shaving was uncomfortable and the shower cubicle was old-school tiny. Comfortable bed, but no air conditioning or mini bar. Bottles of water were a nice touch. It seems this hotel has basic 3-star infrastructure but the main problem: It has major staff issues.

I stayed at Clayton Ballsbridge during our extended (over 24 hour) layover (Berlin-Dublin-Chicago). I wanted something more than an "airport hotel" experience and was glad I found Clayton Ballbrdige.

Our family of four stayed here recently and found it a very good hotel. It had enough underground parking and check-in was efficient with very friendly staff. The room was clean and well-decorated with good wi-fi but a bit too warm at night. The main downside was the price -- we'd unwittingly booked the same night two big concerts were on in Dublin and paid the price for it compared to other Saturdays.

Spent two comfortable nights here while involved in meeting at the nearby Irish Research Council. Rooms of high standard. Breakfasts first class. Only downside was that it was a bit noisy one of the nights due to a guest probably "enjoying" the bar too much, and causing a bit of a rumpus in the corridor in the early hours. Not the fault of the hotel of course.

Our booking started out a little rocky as I had booked 10 rooms from my hen party through booking.com before Christmas. Unfortunately, even though I had selected the "pay on arrival" option, the full amount for all 10 rooms was taken from my bank account only a few weeks before Christmas. As you can imagine, I wasn't very happy about that.

That was terrible experience from start to finish. Not enough parking. I booked and paid extra for a family room, but just got a bunk bed squeezed into and ordinary room, No aircon in middle of summer. The whole hotel feels like it could do with a good clean and the breakfast was terrible. It was self service, but the management decided not to supply trays? We were left fumbling with glasses bowls and plates like badly trained waiters. AWFUL ! and nobody cared.

We booked in the Tower Suite for 1 night. What a waste of money. It sounded great - a room split over 3 levels. They are no curtains/blinds so there's no chance of a lie in. Seriously, how can you have a bedroom with no curtains/blinds??? The hotel is very run-down and needs a serious renovation. Only for the bus fulls of tourists on organised tours, I reckon this hotel would be empty.

Would highly recommend the restaurant. We are from a set menu which was very reasonably priced and the food very tasty with a good range of options. The bar was difficult to get served at, understandably it was busy, but having to wait 15 minutes while everyone else around you gets served isn't ideal. Had extra staff on the following night.

We stayed here two nights in July at the beginning of our Ireland tour. It is located in a beautiful leafy neighborhood among many foreign embassies. Only 20 minute walk to Trinity College. Truly excellent attentive service at the desk. Comfy pub downstairs. Breakfast was our only meal here and nothing remarkable. No air conditioning here as in most of Ireland. Americans like ourselves aren't used to having windows that open in our hotels but be brave and give it a try.

We recently booked into this hotel to spend some time visiting family in Dublin. The outside of the hotel really is impressive - and old red bricked building full of character. Again when you walk into the reception area, it really is lovely. They have added a very clever and modern glass roof to bring the outside, inside and it has been very tasteful done. We were advised that we had been upgraded to an executive suite. These are based on the 2nd floor. We were delighted with that as we are new... Read more

The bottom line is; there is no catch, The Clayton Hotel Ballsbridge does elegant and reasonably-priced weddings as standard. Meetings & Events Coordinator Sarah Glennon was personable and professional from day one, making the planning a stress-free and enjoyable experience. Even with having visited several times, tasted the food and viewed Thomas Prior Hall decorated, I didn't think any more could be done to to exceed my expectations yet, on our wedding day, the extra care and thought that the ...

I attended a recent wedding in the Clayton Hotel Ballbridge which was very expensive compared to normal dates in the calendar. This hotel is quite expensive but lacks the quality of other hotels in the area. With their function room one had to go down stairs to use the wash room or if you required a drink while in the foyer you were required to use @Toms Bar in the basement. The food was not the best which reflects the overall condition of this hotel for a wedding.

Beautiful and relaxing afternoon carvery lunch with a choice of numerous freshly cooked meats, creamed, roast & baby boiled potatoes and lovely selection of vegetables. Excellent service and attention from staff, chef & manager too. Moved then from Restaurant to relax in lounge bar to watch football and relaxing few drinks, brilliant day and evening. Carvery cost 13.50 across the board, well worth it for the quality of food served.

We rented a car (a must if staying in Ireland!) which made getting into Dublin easy. It's about a 10-15 minute drive, depending on the time of day and traffic. You do have to pay for parking everyday which is in a garage under the building. But parking was simple ... Read more

Hard to imagine how anyone can produce a cold steak and veg but even harder to imagine how any restaurant can charge ?3.85 for half a chopped raw onion. It was billed as a side salad and when I asked who decided to call it a side salad and how could you charge ?3.95 I was told bluntly "The chef". Regular customer and good rooms but the food and service leave an awful lot to be desired. Total bill for steak and potatoes, raw onion and a pint of cider ?34.35 maybe a bit much?

No air conditioning, no hair dryer. It's not a modern hotel, but it's charging downtown central pricing when it's inconveniently located out in Ballsbridge.

Not sure where I would stay, but I would try somewhere else next time unless you get a great rate.

THis is a beautiful hotel in a lovely location just minutes away from pubs and restaurants. The room we had wasn't large but cozy and well appointed. The biggest issue was the size of the shower and lack of a shelf to place shampoo and soap. It was the kind of shower that you had to get out to turn around. Another six inches bigger and this hotel would have scored a five out of five from me.

4 stars for service, cleanliness, restaurant pub and quiet. The rooms are nicely appointed but a bit small by American standards but normal for European hotels.
