WHAT WE LOVE...

The Herbert Park Hotel is in the prestigious tree-lined area of Ballsbridge, south of the city centre, and convenient for the Aviva stadium or RDS for events. It is beside Herbert Park and within walking distance of a handful of restaurants and pubs. The hotel lobby and lounge area is large, bright and fresh and it is lovely for a coffee or a drink. Some of the restaurant has views into Herbert Park. The bedrooms are comfortable if decorated in a rather austere and corporate style, with grey furnishings, and some also have views over the park.
