The Fitzwilliam Hotel, Dublin, Ireland
This is a stylish and luxurious five-star hotel overlooking St Stephen's Green and in the heart of the south city centre's shops, cafés, museums, pubs and restaurants. Inside the hotel, the subtle use of colour and geometric patterns in the décor in both the public areas and guest rooms add warmth and personality and service is top notch. There is a fine-dining restaurant on the first floor and a more informal pub on the ground floor, and you can also have afternoon tea in the lobby or bar. There's a courtyard to the rear of the hotel and a small gym, and the hotel is connected to an underground car park. The hotel is also directly opposite the Luas tram stop at St Stephen's Green.
Your expert reviewer
The hotel is in the heart of the city; Grafton Street and St Stephen's are both just steps away.
There are several parks close by and you're within walking distance of Dublin Castle and the iconic Temple Bar.
By plane: direct flights to Dublin from Manchester and Birmingham (1 hour), and London (1 hour 15 minutes). It's a 30-minute drive to the hotel. Parking costs €25 per day. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
Anyone who appreciates style and luxury and likes being somewhere cosy in the city centre will enjoy it here. The geometric carpets and use of colour in bedrooms, hallways and the lobby area add style and personality, and are a nice change from the generic décor of many chain hotels.
