A short hop from the vibrant, buzzing city center, the Four Seasons Dublin is an elegant retreat with some of the most spacious suites in town. Each are kitted out in gold gilt-framed mirrors, antique dark wood furnishings, plush pale green carpets and a smattering of floral prints. En-suite bathrooms are marble and stocked with L’Occitane products. Work up an appetite in the 46-foot indoor pool, the spa and the fitness center, before retiring to one of the restaurants, lounges and bars. The Reading Room dishes out contemporary Irish cuisine looking out over the landscaped courtyard, while ICE serves plates for sharing and well-shaken cocktails to the sounds of a DJ.
In the Area
A trip to Dublin probably wouldn’t be complete without a stop off at the famous Guinness Storehouse. The 26-hectare brewery is seven stories of dedication to the good stuff, topped with the panoramic Gravity Bar to take in the city’s sights with a pint in hand. People-watch in the landscaped St. Stephen’s Green; the buildings that surround it date back to the mid-18th century. Shop til you drop on Grafton Street, which is home to Dublin’s most popular department store, Brown Thomas. For more unique pieces, veer off Grafton to Drury Street; it’s filled with one-off boutiques. For some of the best food in town, try the Michelin-starred Chapter One, and for nightcaps, there’s the gorgeous Victorian Long Hall.
How to Get There
As a Platinum ambassador member, IHG has been my hotel of choice for over 15 years. I have stayed in almost all in Europe and the US (oh and Israel and Australia) I must say that my favorites were Le Grand, Avenue Marceau in Paris and Marseille as I got to know the General Directors quite well..Approaching the hotel I felt a slight rush as it looked like it was going to be a very special I experience . What a warm 'Irish Welcome'. I must say that I was overwhelmed with my whole stay. The welcome I received from the gentlemen in front of the hotel was the warmest I'd ever experienced in all my years at an IHG property. But walking into the lobby! Obviously the General Director has found the perfect blend of old world classic while instilling a feel of modern amenities that are apparent the moment you enter. In other words, stunning, cozy, elegant with a touch of the 21 C. After my experience at the front desk with Cecelia, a credit to IHG and the hotel, I already knew this was the finest staff I had ever met and again ...bravo to the General Director for instilling his staff with first class service, I wish I could remember the name of every single person at the front desk as well as the wonderful breakfast staff, My partner had written that it was a special B-Day and there were B-day wishes treats and a card in the Executive suite of which we had been upgraded. . The room was stunning in the way it had been appointed. Again...rich looking traditional with many modern amenities that gave you total comfort.What a view. Two tropical showers. Giant state of the art bathroom and luxe products in a generous nature.The bathroom truly was as big as an apartment in NY. The bed! That wonderful IHG bed filled with luxury linens and down duvets that just rocks you to sleep. The whole hotel including my room was shining clean, clean, clean! All hotel guests should be lucky enough to sleep in the special IHG bed that you find in all IHG hotels. I was so pleased with my accommodations that I went down to the lobby area infused with a wonderful air of energy and I settled back into a wing chair and a server with a spring in his step was at my side within 5 minutes! I ordered a flute of champagne which was accompanied by some delicious mini chocolates. Breakfast the next morning was taken in the restaurant downstairs. Usually,I take breakfast in the club lounge. As this hotel did not have one I looked forward to trying the breakfast in the restaurant as i was famished from the flight the day before and I had not really wanted dinner. Well! All I can say is anything you could possibly want for breakfast prepared with obvious best ingredients (THE SCONES! ) could be found in the buffet.Freshly made breads, jams and pastries, main dishes that were excellent, meats, cheeses, salmon, fresh juices and of course a pot of superb tea made exactly as I like with all my picky "I need this and that for my proper breakfast tea." (I don't drink coffee).I became known as the IHG member who could polish off more waffles than any other guest up to this point. As a matter of fact, the chef added waffles (just superb) to my last morning even though it was not on the schedule. Again the staff was friendly and right on point! They really deserved kudos. You did not wait more than a few seconds when you looked like you wanted something. A quick workout in the well equipped gym and I was ready for my day. A cognac in the lobby that evening after my dinner downtown and I was one happy person. This is what I call the 'Intercontinental Experience'. I can't wait to return. What more does one need to say??
The InterContinental Dublin is an amazing property nestled in a less busy area. It is an easy walk to the Sandymout Metro Station or a quick taxi ride into the city. On arrive the staff greeted us with warm and welcoming smiles. They were quick to ask if we needed recommendations or even directions.
Concierge: I believe the young mans name is Steven, but he was super nice. The gentleman opened the door to the hotel and made sure we headed in the right direction. I think I even heard him singing a little, which was an indication he enjoys his career.
Check-In: The staff where very nice and knowledgeable. They made the process quick and easy. They provided us with details regarding the area and things to do.
The Room: The rooms are simply one of the best I have stayed in around the world. The bed was super comfortable, and the shower was beyond relaxing. If I didn't have plans a weekend in the room is how I would have enjoyed my stay.
Bar/Restaurant: Although I was not able to enjoy all of the amazing meals the hotel provides, we did enjoy a few spirits before heading out into Dublin. There were so many items to choose from I felt comfortable ordering my favorite drink.
Overall: The hotel by far has been one of the best hotels I have stayed in around the world. I recommend this location as the hotel to visit for a peaceful warm hospitable stay.
Fantastic two night stay with my family in this beautiful hotel. I have to commend every member of staff that I encountered at this hotel they were excellent. From the door staff that greeted us, the reception staff that checked us in, the cleaners, the bar and restaurant staff and the staff at breakfast everyone was first class and they had a small and genuinely seemed to enjoy their work. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay special nothing was ever a problem they could not do enough for us and I really appreciated their kindness. Great hotel for families to stay the rooms are beautiful, large beautifully refurbished and clean with two large queen beds. We ate in the bar restaurant both nights the food is first class. I also would like to commend the staff that I spoke to on the phone when booking the hotel they were excellent and they went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. I look forward to staying again soon. Thanks so much. Oliver Clarke
