This terrace of gracious Georgian buildings, reputed to have been the birthplace of the Duke of Wellington, embraces the character of many changes of use over 200 years. Bedrooms and suites are spacious, some in the original house; others are in a modern wing overlooking the gardens. They all offer great comfort and a wide range of extra facilities. The lounges retain the charm and opulence of days gone by, while the Cellar bar area is a popular meeting point. Dining options include The Cellar Restaurant specialising in prime local ingredients and, for that very special occasion, the award-winning Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud is Dublin's finest. "Art Tea" is an afternoon tea experience with a difference, where delightful pastries are inspired by works from the hotel's vast art collection.
