Dublin’s poshest design hotel happens to also be one of its most centrally located, nestled among luxury shopping, cultural and historical sites, fine-dining restaurants, and welcoming watering holes. Each room is slightly different, giving them a residential feel, but all are tricked out with fabric and furniture by celebrated British designers like Terrance Conran and Paul Smith. Irish Chef of the Year Kevin Thornton oversees a namesake restaurant that earned a Michelin star for its contemporary cuisine, served in a pretty room overlooking St Stephen’s Green. A small spa offers massage and facial services and a bespoke nail bar.
In the Area
Dublin’s famous “craic,” or spirit of welcoming, is found in abundance right around the Fitzwilliam. It’s also near Dublin’s “catwalk,” the high-fashion Grafton Street, whose shops include the long-running lifestyle store Brown Thomas and the elegantly feminine Fran & Jane, a mother-daughter partnership that’s been creating beguiling fashion for decades. The iconic watering holes in the neighborhood are plentiful. The hotel’s list of favorites includes the Bailey, O’Donoghues, and Grogans.
How to Get There
Very happy with our stay in the fitzwilliam, very welcoming from the minute we arrived. The lady that checked us in kindly walked with is to show us our room which was great. The gentlemen on the door we're very friendly and always offered to help with our bags. The car park was very handy as its part of the hotel. Location is fantastic its right across from stephens green. All round the perfect place to stay for anyone visiting Dublin!
We had a lovely stay. The location on St. Stephen’s Green was perfect. Accommodations were very nice, and the service was too-notch. All of the staff were so friendly and attentive. We can’t wait to come back!
I am very impressed by the pleasant attitude of this hotel’s staff.
At the concierge desk, to restaurant staff, bell boys... everyone of them are so friendly, helpful and even with the extra miles of service we were provided, we find our stay here very comfortable and warm.
Both Patrick and Dane at the concierge are wonderful. Super friendly and resourceful with good suggestions of restaurants. The other staff at the breakfast restaurant were very responsive too.
The bedroom and the hotel decoration overall is regarded as oldish style for me. Room and bathroom are rather small. But facilities inside the room are sufficient. There’s a balcony inside my room but over looking to the interior of rooms opposite to us. Hence if you want to have some privacies, you have to keep the blinds down.
This hotel is very well located centrally. Walking distance to Trinity College, Temple Bar, Grafton Street for shopping. Close to The Little Museum of Dublin.
As the hotel interior isn’t charming to me, so I didn’t take any photos to upload for you.
Thanks for giving us a good first impression of Dublin with your warm hospitality.
This hotel is right in the center of everything. We walked to most attractions. It’s also very close to a taxi stand, buses and trains. Our room was very quite and clean. If I had to complain about anything it would be that the shampoo, conditioner and body lotion they provide is heavily perfumed. The concierge was very helpful and recommended some out standing dinner options for us. Breakfast was really good too.
There are no great deals to be had in terms of downtown Dublin hotels, and I would describe the Fitzwilliam as not unreasonable. We paid $300 per night for an entry-level room with breakfast. The room was cute, and the hotel, stylish. The check-in was quite smooth and the concierge knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast was fine, but the quality of service was sketchy on the one day it was crowded. When we ate toward the end of the breakfast window on a different day- it was fabulous though. Hot freshly prepared breakfast in addition to a cold european-style buffet. Our location was IDEAL, and while the hotel was starting to show some minor signs of wear, it was worth the price and I would stay again.
