Star rating:
5 star hotel

4.8

The Four Seasons brand is revered around the world and its Dublin location is no exception.

This five floor five-star hotel is all about impeccable attention to detail, down to the delicious fresh ginger tea made daily and on tap in its spa downstairs, or the melt-in-your-mouth chocolate cookie with every coffee! Guests are made to feel like VIPs and this is a regular haunt for many Dublin socialites, as much for its exceptional service standards as for its opulent public areas. The Ice Bar is a legendary cocktail bar for high profile PR events and glamorous get togethers.

Location

Ballsbridge is a short taxi ride from Dublin city centre, surrounded by restaurants and bars of the highest standard. The Four Seasons is adjacent to the RDS, close to Aviva Stadium and the cultural hub in the Spencer Dock area.

Bedrooms

Standard rooms have king-sized beds, and are deluxe in size at 500 square feet. All rooms have terraces or balconettes to make the most of large airy windows and views of green spaces around the hotel. Free treats include a bowl of fruit or chocolate dipped strawberries or, in the suites, a cocktail making set with the hotel’s signature raspberry martini ingredients is a novel addition. Cute bonuses for kids are mini bathrobes, a PlayStation and steps at reception so tiny tots can check themselves in (under supervision of course!). WiFi is available throughout the hotel as well as 24 hour room service. A one hour pressing facility is useful for those on the go. Free standing marble showers and deep sunken baths are extremely inviting and executive suites offer oodles and oodles of space.

Public areas

Glamorous and upmarket with lots of staff milling around to keep service standards exceptionally high. The large marble framed lobby is super sophisticated and this standard is consistent throughout the hotel.

Eating and drinking

There’s a luxurious space for all occasions; savour a quiet drink in the residents' bar (where you’ll find Ireland’s most comprehensive whiskey menu), a coffee in the lounge or a snack in the new sushi bar. There’s a super choice of bistro or a la carte downstairs in plush surroundings. The Ice Bar is a Dublin institution for cocktail fuelled gatherings.

 

Leisure facilities

Blow Hair Salon (7am-7pm or open on demand) is downstairs beside the extensive and zen-like spa, with four treatment rooms, as well as a well equipped gym and 46 ft swimming pool, alongside a sauna and Jacuzzi. Free fruit, nuts and tea or coffee are available for free here all day.

Service

Formal and impeccable. You'll feel like a superstar.
