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
I stayed at The Intercontinental Dublin with my other half for a long weekend on an employee rate, and it was our first time in Dublin. The Reception staff were absolutely amazing, and our room was ready when we arrived at 12.30pm. The room was spacious and the bathroom was fantastic with a big shower and deep bath. Housekeeping did an amazing job also. The hotel is away from the city centre, but we loved the area of Ballsbridge as it's a lovely area to walk into town from. On a sunny day, you can definitely walk into central Dublin in under an hour, and to 3Arena in 20 minutes. A taxi only costs around 15 euros though. The spa is lovely, and the staff are a credit to the hotel. 10/10 weekend away
100% Amazing. Just book it. If you want a super luxurious hotel that goes the extra mile to make you feel special, then this is the place. Great dining at all meals in Seasons restaurant too. The staff are so welcoming and genuinely friendly. Sarah Geoghegan at the front desk is a breath of fresh air. She’s really efficient and super helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Jane and Debbie on front desk are also extremely helpful and kind, always smiling and most obliging. These are the people who keep me going back. The personal touch. We stay at the Intercontinental in Dublin each time we visit the city. We have stayed in a wide range of room types and have always had utmost comfort, spotlessly clean rooms, all the facilities you might require and a feeling of utter indulgence and pampering. My children are very welcome and are fussed over and spoiled with little treats.
Location is excellent. Not too far from the City Centre but in a nice area where we feel safe walking around in the evening. This is a great hotel and I don’t think I can do it justice. Even after just one night there you feel like you have had a holiday. We will most certainly be back. For sure.
I arrived at the hotel for a romantic getaway with my boyfriend. We had complained at our last stay about front office unable to tell us when our room was ready and we had to wait until 6 o'clock to enable us to actually get into our room making us miss our transport for a concert.
On this particular stay we arrived to the hotel and we were welcomed back. I have an employee discount and was told that I had to pay as I go and was not aloud to use my employee discount due to not having a credit card. I explained I stayed here before and did not require a credit card in which the receptionist did not seem to please. She then said that She would leave it open but we would not be aloud to dine in the seasons restaurant for no apparent reason? When I asked why this was she just replied its how things are now...I checked the contract of IHG employee rate with my manager who is the spokesperson for our employee rate and he said it counts for all food and drink within any hotel. This left us quite annoyed due to the amount of money we spent on the room and the disappointing stay we had the last time. Food in the lobby lounge was beautiful but the service was terrible. Waited 20 minutes for someone to take our order and during courses all we could hear was laughter from waitresses instead of coming in to clear our plates. To get attention for drinks was impossible resulting in us walking to the bar ourselves. The room was gorgeous but the disappointment from both the reception staff and restaurant staff made us feel uneasy. It would take us a long time before we go back to the intercontinental after feeling so uneasy from this stay.
I don’t normally frequent such expensive hotels, but had business in the area and other options weren’t available. I am glad that is the case; from the reception staff, through bar staff, cleaners and janitors everyone was s complete delight. The bar is lovely but not pretentious, the food is delightful, and the rooms are stunning. A real gem!!!
My wife and I recently stayed three nights during a recent visit to Dublin. Check in was fast and efficient and we were offered an upgrade at a cost from the IHG points booking we had made. Whilst we accepted it in hindsight we would probably just have taken the standard points offering.
The hotel is certainly in the grand style and looks imposing from the road and is certainly to a high quality throughout. It belies its age as I thought it was late 1800's/early 1900's but I was told it was around 20 years old. It certainly is a very nice and thoughtfully designed building.
The Junior Suite that we had was spacious and well designed. Without a doubt the best room we stayed in during a three week visit to Europe.
We found the hotel just a little bit further out from Dublin city than we expected but found using the train (a short walk down the road) to get about quite easy. Further along the same road is the small town of Sandymount which has a range of nice restaurants and pubs.
Unfortunately we didn't get to eat any restaurant meals in the hotel but did enjoy snacks and drinks in the bar area in the evenings. All very nice.
We would certainly stay again next time we are in Dublin. Recommended.
