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
My husband and I visited Dublin for an anniversary trip. The Fitzwilliam hotel was fantastic! It was elegant and upscale without being fussy or pretentious. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect! Right on St Stephen's Green and right at the end of Grafton street for easy access to the river and Temple Bar areas. I would highly recommend!
Fabulous weekend, great hotel with a great location, just on St Stephens Green. Breakfast is fabulous and the staff are great, very helpful and friendly. We even got an upgrade as it was my husbands birthday. Will definately return.
Stayed at the Fitzwilliam for only one night. Would definitely come back again! The service was excellent! The daily breakfast on the mezzanine level was amazing and included in our package which we booked through Costco travel. Our room was beautiful. We came in off the redeye and the staff got us into our room by 10 am. The location is perfect! Right across the street from St Stephens square park and adjacent to tons of the best Dublin shopping, restaurants and pubs.
