About the hotel
Voted Number 1 Hotel in Ireland by Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2018
The unrivalled location and luxury of The Westbury in Dublin, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, blends city living with an oasis of comfort and calm. From the moment guests ascend the hotel’s central staircase to be introduced at check-in, there is a sense of being welcomed into a home from home. Take The Gallery, the supremely appointed and positioned space where afternoon tea is an institution and to one side, The Sidecar, with its 1930s, Gatsby-esque look and feel, sees white-jacketed bartenders fix martinis at your table. Meanwhile, with its buzzy outdoor terrace and walk-in entrance, all-day eatery Balfe’s marries the easy elegance of a Parisian bistro with the dynamic energy of a New York brasserie. And, signature restaurant WILDE couples 1930s elegance with a botanical aesthetic, its floor-to-ceiling windows and an array of greenery, looking out over the city centre.
The Westbury’s central location in the heart of Dublin offers unrivalled access to the pedestrianised social hub of Grafton Street, as well as the historic open spaces of Dublin’s Trinity College and St Stephen’s Green. Irish heritage abounds in the hotel too, from the flowers to the food, along with one of the country’s foremost art collections, featuring original paintings by Sir John Lavery and Louis le Brocquy. But is it the warmth of welcome that is most vivid – a tangible service ethos that sets the seal on a haven of luxury.
