The 10 Best Hotels in Dublin

4th January 2007 // By Zahra Al-Kateb



Located in Dublin’s lively Temple Bar district, the Morgan is among the city’s most chic boutique hotels and has attracted a keen following in the music and fashion industries.

The cool modern interiors contrast with the dynamic street life outside and offer elegant comfort perfect for longer stays. Each room is individually designed in a contemporary minimalist style, with the colorful bathrooms perhaps the most striking feature. Elite travelers will love the cocktail bar—a favorite among Dublin’s in crowd—and the hotel’s proximity to Grafton Street, the city’s main shopping thoroughfare. The Morgan also has a fine tapas restaurant, professional meeting rooms and an attractive courtyard.



Why we love it: This duplex style apartment features Philippe Starck furniture, its very own baby grand piano and a rooftop garden with panoramic views of the city. Light beechwood furnishings and creamy neutral walls lend the interior a clean fresh feel and make this an easy place to stay for a week or two. The master bedroom includes a king size bed with a gilt-framed Louis XV headboard and guests can make use of a widescreen TV and private bar. The fully-equipped kitchen and ample dining area are convenient for longer stays, and you’ll find every appliance and feature is designed with exquisite attention to detail. A novelty you won’t find elsewhere, the rooftop terrace includes an extra room in the form of a vintage Airstream caravan.
