Nice to meet you

We are The Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin, a five star haven of luxurious style and relaxing elegance right in the very heart of the city. In fact, we have the best location of any hotel in Dublin, right on leafy St Stephen’s Green at the top of iconic Grafton Street.

After a busy day wandering the streets, the galleries, the bars, restaurants, parks, clubs, museums, concerts, shows and festivals, it’s great to get back to this haven of comfort. Your cosy nest. Albeit with unbelievable food, fantastic rooms, undeniable flair and the best, most friendly, most helpful staff you’ve ever met. Anywhere.

We’re not the only ones who think the people here are amazing: American blogger Lara DiPaola recently wrote in her blog post describing her stay with us, highlighting that it’s the staff that really sets the Fitzwilliam apart. Walk through the front doors and it feels like home, like a warm embrace, a welcoming, endless hug.

Dublin is a fantastic city and the Fitzwilliam Hotel is special. We hope you’ll get a real sense of that charming, unfindable-anywhere-else traditional Irish hospitality but in a contemporary, comfy setting here, from our posts, in this blog section.

We want our blog, Scéal, to be your digital concierge. Your mine of inside information and source for secrets only local Dubliners know. And ok, directions to the best pint of Guinness in Dublin.
