Experience the Suite Life This Christmas At The Westin Dublin

Megan Cassidy

When it comes to a luxurious city-break in Dublin, there are a few key notes to hit.

It should feel like an escape from reality, but still have a sense of place. There’s something very special about stepping off a buzzy, thronging street into the warmth and opulence of a luxury hotel.

There needs to be some killer dining options. With so much choice in the city, we need a real reason to stay put at the hotel and dine just a few floors down from our rooms.

Oh, and dreamy rooms are a must. When we treat ourselves to a luxury break, we want to wake up in paradise.

Sound good? Well look no further than The Westin Dublin – the iconic hotel in the heart of Dublin that ticks all of the boxes.
