This Dublin landmark exudes elegance and a real sense of history, having been established in 1824. The public areas are spacious and offer a range of dining and bar options. There is a selection of bedroom styles and suites available, many with commanding views over St Stephen's Green. No 27 is a popular bar and lounge for casual dining, while the Saddle Room is the main restaurant featuring a steak and seafood menu with a contemporary twist, and an enviable reputation for both its food and service. Afternoon tea is served in the elegant Lord Mayor's Lounge and is a real treat. An extensive leisure and fitness facility is also available, together with a range of meeting rooms, including The Constitution Room, where the Irish Constitution was drafted.
