Dublin Luxury Hotels - Luxury Hotels in Dublin

city street five center

Visitors to Dublin seeking luxurious accommodations have a variety of choices that reflect the more than 1,000 year history of the city.

Clontarf Castle was built in 1172 as a defense fortress. Today it is a modern luxury hotel near the city center. It is within 1.5 miles of both Croke Park Stadium, a sports venue which hosts music concerts, and O2 Arena, the largest site built expressly for music in Europe.

Rock stars Bono and The Edge of U2 are the owners of another luxury Dublin hotel, the Clarence, located along the River Liffey in the trendy, cultural Temple Bar area. Built in 1852, the Clarence has been totally modernized and is now a five-star hotel.

The largest five-star hotel in Dublin is the Shelbourne Hotel on Stephen’s Green in the heart of the city. Opened in 1824, the hotel cemented its place in Irish history when the Irish Constitution was drafted at the hotel 98 years later. It is now part of the Marriott chain.

Also on Stephen’s Green is the five-star FitzWilliam, just off Grafton Street, Dublin’s finest shopping street.

Located right on Grafton Street is the Westbury, a popular hotel with both tourists and business travelers for its central location.

Nearby, opposite the buildings of the Irish government, is the Merrion Hotel made up of four restored Georgian townhouses.

Luxury hotel chains are represented by the Four Seasons Dublin, the only Dublin hotel with a full service spa, and the Westin, housed in a former bank building, and located in the city center opposite Trinity College. Just over three miles from the city center, the Radisson Blu St. Helens Hotel allows visitors to stay in an eighteenth century estate house in a residential neighborhood.
