Four Seasons Hotel, Dublin

Simmonscourt Rd.
Dublin , Ireland http://www.fourseasons.com/dublin
(800) 332-3442

It may be something of an eyesore from the outside (with a hospitalesque brick building that was panned by architecture critics when it opened in 2001), but the characteristically luxurious Four Seasons property has some of the largest and best-appointed guest rooms in town. Even the most wallet-friendly Moderate rooms are 447 square feet and kitted out in customary country style (antique repros, brass lamps, floral upholstery); all 197 rooms have large marble baths with walk-in showers and deep soaking tubs. The two on-site bars are a study in contrasts: while the bar has an old-school men’s club vibe—complete with leather chairs and an extensive whiskey “library”—the ICE bar is a slick, mirrored, white-on-white space meant for cocktail-sipping and sampling tapas. The health-minded will surely appreciate the property’s lovely, glassed-in indoor pool, gleaming fitness center, and the spa offering Sodashi treatments.
