With stylish décor and just a stone’s throw away from major attractions such as Temple Bar, Trinity college and the Guinness Storehouse, this five star stylish and sophisticated city centre hotel is a the perfect option to surprise a loved one and enjoy a taste of luxury. The property provides 24 hour security and concierge, whilst the onsite restaurants and bars offer both formal and more relaxed dining. Each guest room has its own climate control, and includes daily housekeeping, cable television and a butler service. There is also an onsite gym as well as a fully equipped business centre, so whatever your reason for travelling the hotel has it covered.

Ireland is famous for Guinness, so taking a tour of the Guinness Storehouse is a great way to celebrate this Irish export. Learn about the Guinness family legacy and the man responsible for it all: Arthur Guinness. The tour climaxes with a complimentary pint in the Gravity Bar, overlooking the city with unrivalled views. If you’re more of a whiskey drinker, then tours are also available for the Jameson Distillery. Let the expert guide teach you a thing or too about whiskey tasting, or why not come to one of the distillery’s famous evening Shindigs with live entertainment and a sit down dinner.

Listening to some live Irish music is another must during your stay. Just walk around the cultural quarter of Temple Bar and you’ll sure to be lured into a few Irish pubs with live acts. The Church is perhaps one of Dublin’s quirkiest venues. Like the name suggests, it was in fact once a church but today is a café, restaurant and bar with a dance floor. It’s still recognisably a place of worship with a crypt downstairs, stained glass windows and an organ that was once played by the likes of Handel, but it’s also a lively music venue where you can listen to some of Dublin’s best emerging and established acts.

Throughout the year there are many well loved Irish festivities, but if you can, try and time your visit with St Patrick’s Day held on March 17th. Get yourself dressed up in the traditional bright green associated with the Irish and join the parade. This all day drinking festival can leave you pretty tired out, so at the end of it all be sure to enjoy a hearty meal of Irish stew at one of the Victorian pubs.
