Designer hotel with Michelin star restaurant equals five-star stay
No detail of the luxurious Ftizwilliam Hotel, from the fabrics to the in-room telephones, has escaped the talented eye of Sir Terence Conran. The illustrious British designer created this award-winning hotel by Dublin's St. Stephen's Green in 1998 for stylish travelers. Palatial bedrooms with views of the park and mountains transport guests from the bustle of the city center. A Michelin star restaurant and unique rooftop garden make this a refined refuge for travelers to the Irish capital.

 

Highlights
  • Contemporary award-winning hotel designed by famed British designer Sir Terence Conran
  • Michelin star chef Kevin Thornton serves Dublin's finest cuisine
  • Stunning views of St. Stephen's Green and Dublin Mountains, plus rooftop garden
Rooms

The sumptuously decorated rooms at the Fitzwilliam feature all standard amenities and luxuries like duck down bedding, fresh-cut flowers, complimentary still and sparkling water, daily newspaper, high-speed Internet and in-room safe. Superior and executive rooms have private balconies with stunning views of St. Stephen's Green and the Dublin Mountains.  Each room includes bathrobes and slippers for guests. A two-bedroom penthouse apartment is also available, complete with butler service.

Features

Although the Fitzwilliam's prime location is close to fine dining and entertainment, guests may want to stick close to their quarters. The hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant, Thornton's, run by chef extraordinaire Kevin Thornton, is seen by many as Dublin's best restaurant. The chic Citron restaurant serves modern Irish cuisine and guests can enjoy drinks late into the night at the intimate cocktail bar, Inn on the Green. The hotel's Spirit and Kaizen salons offer an array of luxurious beauty services and the gym is available 24 hours. The Fitzwilliam also features Ireland's largest rooftop garden.

Contemporary Hotel, Great Location

This hotel has a tasteful contemporary design, both in the common rooms and in the guest rooms. If you're looking for traditional, this is not the hotel for you but we loved it. It's on St. Stephens Green near Grafton Street so there the location is perfect for shopping, dining and sightseeing. The rooms were very clean, reasonably sized, amenity filled and had modern well lit bathrooms. The concierge, [...], was super -- very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a quiet room overlooking the rooftop garden. The only slight problem was that we couldn't get the room temperature below 24 (75) degrees and the beds only had quite warm duvets. But the room windows did open and it did cool off at night. Dublin was quite warm and sunny during our stay at the Fitzwilliam. Now we're staying at the Shelbourne so we can compare the two. Style-wise we prefer the Fitzwilliam, in all other considerations -- cleanliness, food, service, amenities -- the two hotels are comparable. The air conditioning works better at the Shelbourne.

Breakfasts can be expensive at the hotels unless you have a deal where it is included. We didn't at the Fitzwilliam but because there are so many streets closeby that have great places it wasn't a problem. We particularly liked the Boulangerie Cafe on Chatham Street between Grafton and Clarendon. Great coffee and yummy omelets -- and their breads and pastries are great too.

Superb!

Really enjoyed my stay, cool decor, great staff and very chilled. In a perfect part of the city centre, walking distance to many areas and attractions and close enough to the night-out areas without dealing with the noise when you are done!

Great location and reasonably priced!

Across from St. Stephen's Green. Steps away from wonderful shopping. Short walk to Temple Bar, O'Connell Street and Trinity University. Beautiful and comfortable room. Very inviting bathtub! Adjacent car park. All told, a great room in a great city!

This Hotel is GREAT

First class treatment from the greeting at the door till we left. We felt welcomed and able to ask for whatever we wanted and no problem for the staff. Room was laid out beautifully, even had a live orchid in the room. Bed was super comfortable, queen sized and furniture and decor all added to the pleasure of being in the room. very quiet, except for the running of the shower in the room next door, and that was not a big deal. Gym was worth a visit and had everything needed to keep in the routine of fitness. Shower AND bath and great lighting. Internet was both cord and wireless and worked well. Perfect location for Dublin exploring - park across the street is quiet and a joy; lots of shopping right nearby; get to tours easily and the neighbourhood is easy-going. Only 2 negatives and they were small: we consulted the concierge for a couple of things and two different ones steered us toward things they were pushing, instead of getting us what we wanted. 2nd was the shower curtain didn't go around enough and water pooled on the bathroom floor.

Great hotel in a great location

This hotel is perfectly located across from the beautiful St. Stephens Green, and at the base of Grafton Street. The rooms are beautiful, spacious, quiet and comfortable. The staff pays extreme attention to detail, and service is of the highest quality. The concierges are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. One of them provided three restaurant recommendations and made the reservations for us. All three were superb. We always try to stay at excellent hotels, and this is one of the best.

Fantastic location

This hotel was very well located, right in the heart of the city center, at one end of Grafton Street, which is the central shopping area. It is ideal for a couple or families with children if you want to be right in the center of it all. St. Stephen's Green park is directly across the street and the main tourist attractions are all within short walking distance. The hotel is immaculately kept, the room service is excellent and the staff is courteous and friendly. The standard room is quite small, but it is normal for a European hotel (compared to the US). The decor is beautiful [...].
