Four Seasons Hotel Dublin Review

Set within the show grounds of the Royal Dublin Society, this Victorian-Georgian hybrid—topped by gigantic eaves and a lovely cupola—looks like the real McCoy but was in fact an extravaganza built during the boomtime excesses of the brash Celtic Tiger era. The impressive landscaping—it has 4 acres of gardens—aims to make the hotel seem like an oasis; a big effort has been made to ensure that a bit of greenery can be seen from most rooms. Once you enter the six-floor building, you see pre-20th-century design mixes luxuriously with modern glass and concrete—a selection of landscapes on the hotel walls lends the place a warm touch. Guest rooms are spacious, with large windows that allow light to flood in. The lower-level antiques-adorned spa is one of the finest in the country, with a naturally lighted lap pool. The Lobby Lounge is a popular afternoon tea spot.
