THE FOUR SEASONS
A beautiful marble-adorned lobby leads you into one of the most spacious and peaceful hotels in the capital.
Located in the desirable Ballsbridge district in the southeast of the city, the new red brick building combines faux Georgian and Victorian features with modern concrete and glass, and once inside you can expect immaculate service and particularly good facilities for families. The four-acre garden makes a verdant view from the large hotel windows and provides a tranquil retreat in the summer. Tea in the Lobby Lounge is delightful, or for something a little stronger, the hotel’s popular Ice Bar is as cool as its name would suggest. Seasons Restaurant serves fine seasonal dishes using Irish ingredients and for sybaritic bliss, the large hotel spa is one of the best in Ireland.
TOP SUITE PRESIDENTIAL SUITE
Why we love it: With extravagant furnishings, ornaments and amenities, the Presidential Suite is every bit as opulent as you would expect from the Four Seasons empire. Available with two or three bedrooms thanks to adaptable connecting rooms, the suite includes a separate kitchen, an eight-seat dining room and a balcony with pleasant views on to the landscaped gardens and the show grounds of the Royal Dublin Society. The master bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and dressing area, with a guest powder room near the suite entrance, and the marble bathroom offers a deep soaking bath tub, a separate glass-walled shower and a double vanity.
