Conrad Dublin

A sleek Dublin hideaway

Considering its location right in the heart of the city (just off the corner of Stephen’s Green, in fact), Conrad Dublin offers a remarkably peaceful spot. Set across the street from the National Concert Hall, the hotel avoids the raucous revelries of town and instead is a slick, calming space with glossy marble floors, a citrusy signature scent and subtle nods to nature, from mossy green tones to delicate branch-shaped light fittings inspired by the nearby Iveagh Gardens.

Upstairs, the Zen-like atmosphere continues in the 192 rooms, with woven herringbone blankets, Irish artwork on the walls and super-plush, kitten-soft bedding. On the ground floor, both guests and Dubliners head to the cocktail bar Lemuel’s for an aperitif or to the main restaurant The Coburg for rare steaks and merlot. In a city increasingly blessed with outdoor dining facilities, the newly refurbished Terrace Kitchen and Social House is a delight, the piazza and courtyard garden flooded with light on sunny days and bright yet cozy when the Irish weather takes a turn.
Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The creative cocktail menu in Lemuel's is one of the best in the city. Drawing inspiration from its musical neighbors, the bar crafts concoctions like the Second Waltz (a nod to Dutch violinist and conductor André Rieu) made with aged rum, vermouth and grapefruit bitters.
  • Unusual for Dublin, some of the rooms have balconies, so you can take your morning Nespresso alfresco.
  • There’s a strong Manhattan vibe to The Coburg, a dimly lit brasserie with sexy style notes and an impeccable collection of Irish steaks.
  • Fitness buffs will be kept happy in the sleek yet practical gym, which has a wellness area with yoga mats and aromatherapy diffusers. It’s open 24 hours a day, too.
  • At turndown, you’ll find branded Butlers chocolates — a family-owned Dublin company — on your pillow, as classical music plays on the radio.

Things to Know

  • There’s a lesser-known entrance to the Iveagh Gardens just over the road, to the side of the National Concert Hall. While the nearby Stephen’s Green is often packed with people, this park feels like a calm hideaway in the middle of the city. The fragrant rose garden is particularly special.
  • Keep an eye out for gigs and events in the National Concert Hall, but bear in mind the bigger performances will often mean the hotel books up early. Reserve a table in Lemuel's for a pre-show cocktail, if you want to guarantee yourself a seat.
  • Pets are allowed in the luxury hotel, subject to an additional fee.
