“Splendour and elegance in the heart of Dublin” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
This Dublin landmark exudes elegance and a real sense of history, having been established in 1824. The public areas are spacious and offer a range of dining and bar options. There is a selection of bedroom styles and suites available, many with commanding views over St Stephen's Green. No 27 is a popular bar and lounge for casual dining, while the Saddle Room is the main restaurant featuring a steak and seafood menu with a contemporary twist, and an enviable reputation for both its food and service. Afternoon tea is served in the elegant Lord Mayor's Lounge and is a real treat. An extensive leisure and fitness facility is also available, together with a range of meeting rooms, including The Constitution Room, where the Irish Constitution was drafted.

About the area
It is often visited on a weekend trip, but rushing around is not the best way to experience Dublin. When Ireland joined the European Union, an economic boom began that flourished in the ‘Celtic Tiger’ years of the 1990s – fashion, the arts, food and Irish culture all blossomed, turning Dublin into one of the world’s hottest city destinations. Its transformation has continued into the 21st century with a technology boom.
There is something very special about this small city with its split personality – exhilarating and chic on one side but traditional, with an older generation still hanging on to pre-EU values, on the other.
One of the city’s irresistible charms is its welcoming people; so take time to relax in the pubs and cafes while absorbing the craic that is synonymous with the Irish. Slide away from the touristy themed pubs to discover the real heart of Dublin in its less well known taverns and in conversation with the locals.
