Might have to book ourselves in for a spontaneous mid-week stay…

For the second year running, The Westbury has been voted ‘Best Hotel in Ireland’ in the Condé Nast Traveler 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are one of the longest-running and most prestigious awards in the travel industry. This year, more than 600,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers across the globe submitted a rating of their travel experiences.

This iconic city centre luxury hotel, The Westbury is a spot you have to stay in at least once.

At its doorstep lies Grafton Street, renowned for its colour, street artists and luxury shopping; Dublin’s creative quarter, a vibrant network of streets filled with lively bars, restaurants and quirky stores.

From the moment guests ascend the hotel’s central staircase, they are sure to be charmed.

Between gracious galleries with art collections, a stunning afternoon tea, The Sidecar with it’s 1930’s Gatsby-esque feel, brunch at Parisian-style Balfe’s and then the signature restaurant WILDE , which blends 1930s elegance with a botanical aesthetic, it’s clear to see why it came out on top.

Completing the picture are the hotel’s luxurious guest rooms and suites – showcasing the best of Irish design including custom-woven Irish carpets and crisp Lissadell linens.

Such a spot!
