The Dean Hotel, Dublin

New York Times

4.3 Clarence Hotel Dublin

Hotel The Clarence, Dublin


“Owned by Bono and The Edge of U2 fame, this riverside hotel is all class, with its bright oak woods and chocolate leathers. With 49 rooms — many of which overlook the River Liffey — The Clarence qualifies for boutique status, but without all of the bombast that characterizes many designer hotels.”

4.5 Westbury Hotel Dublin

The Westbury Hotel, Dublin


“This traditional hotel enjoys an enviable location just off Dublin’s main shopping thoroughfare, Grafton Street. Recent renovations have given new life to The Westbury’s classic atmosphere: flourishes of modern decor take on an Asian-meets-Western aesthetic with cool, rich tones.”
