A playground of shopping, dining, and events surrounds The Gibson Hotel. Buzzing weekend markets, The Observation Wheel of Dublin, and music venue The O2 are at the hotel’s front door.
Only minutes from the River Liffey, guests can hop on a boat to Dun Laoire Harbour and see the Dublin coast. Tours at The Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery put guests up front to see how two mainstay Irish drinks are crafted. Local hangouts like Temple Bar introduce guests to craic agus ceoil, a Gaelic expression meaning “crack and music” that aptly describes a nightlife full of pubs, Irish music, Irish dance, and theater.
Dublin’s shopping district is located only six minutes away via the Luas, Dublin’s light rail system. In addition to fashionable stores, the district’s O’Connell and Grafton Streets are known for their historic landmarks, cafés, and colorful buskers. More shopping at Dundrum Shopping Centre, Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, and Liffey Valley Shopping Centre is a 30-minute drive from the hotel.
