LOCAL ATTRACTIONS NEAR THE WESTBURY HOTEL

It’s hard to pick out just a handful of reasons to visit Dublin’s fair city, with its vibrant culture, shopping and entertainments. But we’ve done our best – and if you get the chance to visit the following attractions you will have made a good start to discovering the beauties of Dublin. 

 
 
Trinity College

Trinity College

It may be a five-minute stroll from The Westbury Hotel to Trinity College but the route is paved with history. Tread the very cobbles Swift, Beckett and Wilde once walked, pass the statue of Molly Malone, heroine of the historic song, take in Grafton Street, Dublin's 18th century hub, to reach the imposing doors of the 1592 building. Ireland's ancient university houses many treasures, but the breathtaking 9th-century illuminated Book of Kells is one of the literary glories of the world. Miraculously recovered from burial at the time of the Vikings, the venerable tome lives in the awe-inspiring Long Room, the world's largest single-chamber library. A visit once made is truly never forgotten.

Iveagh Gardens

Iveagh Gardens

If you're looking for a little peace in the bustle and craic of the fair city look no further than the bucolic seclusion of Iveagh gardens. Only five minutes from The Westbury Hotel and just south of St Stephen's Green, the gardens are right in the heart of old Dublin, yet little known. Designed by Ninian Niven the space was laid out by Benjamin Guinness in 1863 on land previously the private pleasure gardens of "Copper-faced Jack", the Earl of Clonmell. Niven's enthusiasm for garden design had been fired by a trip to France and in Iveagh he blended the principles of formal French gardens and English landscaping into a magical collection of grottos, cascades, mazes and woodland, with a fine rosarium of rare 18th century varieties.

The Little Museum of Dublin

The Little Museum of Dublin

learn more

Dublin's remarkable history is best explored through the voices of the people that live here, and the Little Museum is unique in providing just that. With a collection of 5,000 artefacts donated by the public, the museum, only minutes from Westbury Hotel, tells the story of the city and its people. Regular exhibitions explore the social and cultural context of 20th century Dublin from music to politics. The museum also runs a ‘greeter programme', City of a Thousand Welcomes (described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “the best free thing to do in Europe”), which pairs visitors with residents who introduce the delights of Dublin over a pint or a coffee.

Powerscourt Townhouse

Powerscourt Town House

learn more

Tucked in the courts and narrow lanes behind Grafton Street and minutes from The Westbury Hotel, the townhouse of Richard Wingfield, Viscount Powerscourt (1730 -1788) and his Lady Amelia, is among the most elegant buildings of Georgian Dublin. Its breathtaking rococo hallway and neo-classical ballroom were high fashion itself in their day. And the Powerscourt Centre is a mall with a difference – its shops and cafes spill out of the original rooms around an atrium allowing al-fresco dining, often with musical accompaniment, whatever the weather. The shopping experience is equally idiosyncratic, with high-end fashion rubbing shoulders with antiques, curiosities and crystals - all appropriate to the whimsical setting.
