A delightfully affordable business-traveler-oriented property, the three-star Mespil Hotel sits on the edge of Ballsbridge, a leafy neighborhood just over the canal from central Dublin.
The Mespil’s 255 rooms offer few tweaks on a tried-and-true modern template. There are lots of browns, beiges and muted blues here, all against blonde wooden furniture. A television, large mirrors, ample desk space and wide windows make these rooms ideal for cost-conscious business travelers. Add to these features the hotel’s restaurant and the free Wi-Fi, and the Mespil’s appeal only rises.
The private bathrooms aren’t quite as generally attractive as the guestrooms, but on the plus side all have bathtubs.
Perhaps because it is located a decent walk (about 15 minutes) from central Dublin, the Mespil offers relatively reasonable rates. With a starting double at €79 (and average pricing for a double around €100), this can be a great value with the right timing and advance planning. The Mespil also offers seven two-bedroom apartments with kitchens for longer-stay guests (a minimum stay of one week).
Breakfast at the Mespil is not included in the nightly rate, but a continental option and more expensive Irish breakfast are available. On the plus side, the Mespil offers room service from 6 a.m. until 9:30 p.m, and the bar is well known for its excellent food.

About the Mespil Hotel neighborhood
This designation encompasses areas outside central Dublin. Ballsbridge and Ranelegh are leafy, mostly residential neighborhoods just over the Grand Canal. The Portobello area to the north of the Canal is funkier, with an intermittently scrappy and stately vibe that provides a nice cross-section of Dublin culture. Finally, Smithfield is just west of Church Street and within easy walking distance to most sights.
