Extremely central, opposite St. Stephen’s Green and around the corner from Grafton Street.
The nine quaint, homely but luxurious bedrooms are a home from home. Rooms are compact with a neutral colour scheme - beige, cream or brown - dotted with splashes of purple and red, plus original oils and prints on walls. Traditional and antique furniture is in keeping with the age of the building.
It’s a guest house so public areas areas are limited. Apart from the bar and restaurant, there’s a private dining room upstairs for groups.
Eating and drinking
The chef who designed the dishes here has been awarded four Michelin stars so the food is top notch and great value at 25 euros for a three-course set lunch menu or 40 euros for dinner. There’s also an oyster bar at the back serving great cocktails, or beer. The restaurant setting is ultra modern and opulent with tables set out with great attention to detail on crisp white linen tablecloths.
Impeccable service and particular attention to detail. Super-friendly.
