Central Hotel Dublin Review

Every city center needs its little oasis, and the Central's book-and-armchair-filled Library Bar—warmed by a Victorian fireplace—nicely fits the bill. Established in 1887, this grand, old-style redbrick spot is just steps from Grafton Street and Temple Bar. Guest rooms are snug and pretty simple, with flocked bedspreads, racing paintings, and 19th-century bric-a-brac. The stately hotel dining room beguiles with its pastel-green walls, bookcases, and gilt-frame pictures.
