Fodor's Expert Review Iveagh Garden Hotel

72–74 Harcourt St., Dublin, Co. Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland

Housed in an elegant four-story Georgian terrace just a five-minute walk from St. Stephen's Green, this contemporary-luxe hotel is decorated with rich wallpapers, touches of brass, gleaming mirrors, stylish tiled floors, lots of Navan-manufactured furniture–-and it is fully powered by an underground river. The black-marble-floor lobby features teal and gold sofas, vintage light fittings, and floor-to-ceiling bookcases. Guest rooms are spacious and bright with high ceilings, deep bespoke carpets, rainfall showers, and Art Deco mirrors. Ask for a room at the back, overlooking the gorgeous Iveagh Gardens. The Library is a perfect place for a quiet drink or a quick bite, and there is a a classic afternoon tea in the picturesque lobby.
