5 hotels for sleeping in luxury in Dublin

1) The Marker Hotel

Strategically located beside the Bord Gais Energy Theatre is this five-star hotel. From floor to ceiling, inside and out, it is nothing short of impressive. Everything oozes style: the walls, the bar and, of course, the opulent rooms with Malin+Goetz products. The roof bar is the epitome of laid back cool.

2) The Merrion Hotel

This is the cream of the crop when it comes to style and extravagance. The swimming pool looks as if it is from an emperor’s palace, there’s a collection of fine art, and the rooms are fit for kings and queens. And there is the Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, the only two-star Michelin restaurant in Ireland.

3) The Iveagh Garden Hotel

Developed at a cost of 40 million euro, this one-of-a-kind hotel has an extraordinary feature: it has its own renewable energy source, namely a river 50 metres below Harcourt Street. Another great feature is the superb Elle’s bar and bistro. Rooms range from city pods to the expansive presidential suite.

4) The Shelbourne Hotel

The home away from home for the rich and famous. Enter past the top hat doormen, enjoy a fantastic White Russian at the bar and then think about what you’d like to do next: relax in your room or take on the fitness centre and indoor pool, or perhaps investigate the 24-hour dining options. Here, the world is your oyster.

5) The Fitzwilliam Hotel

This nicely located and very chic fivestar hotel takes you back to Georgian Dublin. Guests can ask for anything they want here, no whim is too big or too small. The bedrooms are huge and incredibly comfortable, the staff knowledgeable and friendly and there are two fine-dining restaurants.
