Dining

Breakfast
Breakfast is in Raglans Restaurant. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to the experts. You can enjoy yours in the tranquil ambience of Raglans. Choose between a large continental selection of freshly baked rolls, pastries, fruit, cereals and freshly squeezed juices or if you would prefer something more substantial, help yourself to our full Irish Breakfast buffet. Breakfast is served daily from 7am to 10:30am.
Bar
The Dubliner Pub Established in 1963, the Dubliner Pub has built a reputation for authentic Irish pub grub and craic that draws in many eclectic locals, so you'll be sure to experience first hand the warmth and vitality that is synonymous with any visit to our fair city. With traditional music at the weekends and big screens for all the big games, the Dubliner is the place to enjoy the craic and lively banter into the early hours of the morning.
Barber Shop
In town for an important interview or just want to impress the ladies, then pop along to Gerrard's Barber Shop just inside the door of the Ballsbridge Hotel. Established in 1972 and gaining in reputation since, you can treat yourself to a shave or a new look from a European Barber Championship gold medal winner.

Couple city break

Very nice hotel, the entrance and lobby is amazing. Really does have the wow factor! Room was a very good size and the bed was comfy too, our room was right near the lift and we heard no noise! There is a taxi rank just outside the hotel and it was only about 20-30 mins walk to town centre, staff are all so lovely! Would happily stay there again

Business trips

I've stayed at the Ballsbridge Hotel once a week over the last couple of months, mainly due to the location and car parking (€10.50 per 24hrs). The rooms are standard, perhaps a little dated for some, but they are very clean and the staff are very friendly, offering a warm welcome back each cold Monday evening I have arrived.

Good location for Aviva Stadium

Good points..good location for Aviva Stadium..Meals were very good in Hotel...Comfortable bed. Room a good size but dated...Not so good points!! bathroom even worse! Hairdryer moved from sink area to glass mirror...in doing so they cracked the mirror from the top to the bottom and surrounded the hairdryer with a botched job of white sealant..looked very tacky..bathroom also dated..houskeeping left dirty glasses untouched...and were just a bit negligent with the rest of the room..You had to pay EUR10 per night for parking...AND THATS FOR RESIDENTS OF THE HOTEL. You only got 20 mins free Wifi any other hotels I have stayed in gives you 24 hour free Wifi. There was a lot of noise in the hotel...no matter what time of day or night it was! I believe this hotel got 4 stars because of location...the food...and the ammenities i.e conference room etc certainly not for the room.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

DONT TAKE HOUR CAR INTO DUBLIN CITY CENTRE!!!! you will not get parked...better off taking a taxi which was around EUR6.80. We hired a car so be prepared to have euros left for tolls on way to airport if you go the route the GPS takes you
