Conrad Dublin

From its music to its ancient marvels, Dublin is a city bestowed with centuries of history but with an ever-evolving contemporary scene. As a designated Unesco City of Literature, Dublin’s weighty literary tradition is not one to be overlooked.

Holding up a mirror to the wealth of culture on the hotel’s doorstep, the Conrad Dublin encapsulates the charm of the capital’s fair city. Overlooking The National Concert Hall, with the wandering paths of St. Stephen’s Green mere moments away, this luxury hotel’s location is one of its greatest draws. 

However, with fine dining, a relaxing lounge, and an impeccable atmosphere percolating throughout the premises, you may not want to leave the building at all.
