Conrad Dublin-1

Centrally located close to St. Stephen’s Green park and the National Concert Hall, five-star Conrad Dublin’s 192 rooms have recently undergone a complete renovation, making for a comfortable and stylish base from which to explore the city.

Rooms

Rooms are bright and spacious, containing chrome accents and muted green tones throughout with Irish artwork to compliment the space.

A small desk with couch seating makes for a sweet spot by the window for room service or work (a panel on top of the desk pops open to reveal international outlets plus two USB charging ports).

A bar/mini fridge space in the hallway contains a counter with Nespresso machine plus coffee pods, tea and hot cocoa in the drawer. There’s standard and premium wifi (for a fee) available. In the closet you’ll find a safe, bathrobes and slippers.

The bed is super comfortable with luxury linens for a sound sleep (windows open partially for fresh air; alternatively there’s an airco/heating system).

Amenities

The Conrad Dublin has 24-hour room service, a fitness centre with gym plus a business centre.

Limited on time? The Conrad offers one, three and five-hour curated itineraries that take in culture, art, food and adventure (via stayinspired.com).

Dining

Open daily until 11 pm, Cobourg Brasserie on the main lobby level serves up seafood bouillabaisse, club sandwiches and crab cocktails created by Head Chef Dmitry Stroykov.

Lemuel’s Lounge and Bar is named after iconic fictional traveller Lemuel Gulliver, an ode to the magic of classic Irish novel Gulliver’s Travels. Wines, craft cocktails and fine food are on offer here. The lovely space also offers an afternoon tea complete with sandwiches, scones and decadent pastries.

Freshly cut fruit, smoked Irish salmon, Irish cheeses from Cork and Tipperary, black and white pork puddings, Kilkenny grilled bacon, Bretzel Bakery breads and pastries, self-serve honeycomb honey and gluten-free items were but a few of the numerous tasty choices on the weekend buffet spread.

If I Could Change One Thing

It’s all or nothing with the bathroom lights. It would be great to have the option to turn on only one of the lighting units from time to time, especially late at night or early in the morning (I wound up using a flashlight in the middle of the night).

We can’t say enough about the service at the Conrad. Everything we needed was taken care of, from printing out boarding passes to providing tips for area dining and ordering taxis. When we needed to be up at the crack of dawn for a Railtours Ireland day trip, the dining team prepared hot breakfasts with coffee for us to enjoy in the room.

Location

As mentioned above, the Conrad Dublin is well situated, close to shopping, major points of interest, pubs and restaurants. The Aircoach bus 757 to Dublin Airport stops just a few doors down and you can either pay a return fare from the airport (adults, €10) or a single journey (€6) onboard.

Conrad Dublin is located at Earlsfort Terrace, D2 Dublin.

We were guests of the Conrad Dublin. Opinions, as always, are our own.
