Great location, close to everything but quiet. Lovely cellar restaurant, great traditional pub across the street, pool and gym are wonderfully welcoming. Yeats and other masterpieces line the walls. A delight to be in this city this time of the year.

My husband and I have just checked out of the hotel. We stayed as a special treat to yourselves for Christmas. We did some shopping in town and then checked in. From the moment we arrived we were treated so well. Their prize asset is the staff. We met loads of them and they all have the same characteristic-they seem...

We loved this hotel. It is the finest example of old world understated elegance and charm. The doorman was our first touchpoint and he did not disappoint with his welcoming warm smile and greeting and her remembered our name every time with came and went - so charming. The rooms are well appointed and the baths lavish. The Purple Water...

I'm Irish, living abroad for many years, who normally on my home trip stay with family and not in hotels. Thanks to a Google event I got spoilt. So how do I rate it overall.. Service was amazing. I felt that no request was too big. Rooms were spacious, clean and very well kept. Turn down service was very welcome....

This was by far the nicest hotel we visited on our recent trip to Ireland from the US. I am always amazed at how much better Europeans can do hospitality and this hotel was worth it. While they have an international staff, the service is top notch and anticipatory. The people genuinely seemed happy and friendly to us on all...

One of the best hotels I have had the pleasure to stay in. 5 minutes walk to Grafton Street and 30 minutes walk to Aviva Stadium. Service and food are of excellent quality, not to mention staff who couldn't be more helpful.

Quite simply our stay was a joy from start to finish, every member of staff from the concierge on arrival to the concierge on departure was warm polite and professional, each with their own personal touch. The room and facilities were second to none and it was a joy to stay in such refined surroundings. I only wish we had...

Such a very special place, the very best of Dublin. I wouldn't stay anywhere else, so comfortable and luxurious, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent service as always. I'm missing my breakfast in bed.
