Stately and spiffy, and splendidly situated directly across from Government Buildings between Stephen's Green and Merrion Square, this luxurious hotel actually comprises four exactingly restored Georgian town houses. Some of the guest rooms are appointed in classic style—from the crisp linen sheets to the Carrara-marble bathrooms. Some are vaulted with delicate Adamesque plasterwork ceilings, and others are graced with magnificent, original marble fireplaces. To fully
enjoy the historic patina, opt for one of the more authentic rooms in the Main House at the front. The little spa is a perfect place to unwind, and leading Dublin restaurateur Patrick Guilbaud has his eponymous, Michelin-starred restaurant on the premises.
