Wynn's Hotel Review

A few doors down from the Abbey Theatre, Wynn's began its life as a Dublin boardinghouse in 1845, and its beautiful stained-glass awning has become something of a landmark as a romantic meeting spot for locals. While the exterior has always been viewed as a Northside gem, 2011 interior refurbishments have opened up the public spaces and added nice touches to the rooms, including fireplaces and ornate cherrywood beds. Although the rooms are not huge, there's a surprising amount of space in the bathrooms. The decor attempts to blend a hint of the past with a sleeker modern look, not always successfully, but overall there's a warm, comforting feel to the design. Abbey Street has an excited buzz around curtain time, but is otherwise very quiet, so you should get a sound sleep. Its restaurant does a pretheater special where you can pop back for coffee after the show.
