Just spent 3 nights staying in the Four Seasons and it didn't disappoint. The welcome you receive from the moment you arrive, to the time of checkout is superb.
Whilst I live in Dublin my parents and brother were travelling to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday (we previously stayed here to celebrate my father's 80th birthday and enjoyed it so much that we came back). On arrival in her room my mother found a Happy Birthday plate with some strawberries and a cake waiting for her which went down very well.
The hotel is situated in the leafy suburbs of Dublin 4 and is a short bus or car journey from city centre and the main tourist attractions. There is a complimentary courtesy car available which can bring you into the centre or there is a bus stop just around the corner.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well appointed with all the usual facilities one would expect in a 5 star hotel. A great night's sleep is guaranteed on a very comfortable bed. Whilst I would agree with previous reviewers that the decor might be somewhat dated, that should not detract from the fact that the rooms are worth every penny.
Breakfast is delicious particularly the full Irish but there is a good selection to suit everyone's taste.
Lunch and dinner were both nice however the only criticism I would make here is that it is the same menu for lunch and dinner. Whilst the food is great it won't take you long to work through the menu if you are staying for a few days and eat in. Having said that, there are alternative options nearby.
We had a truly marvellous time at the hotel. The hotel was busy but notwithstanding, the staff were always extremely friendly and courteous and couldn't do enough to make our stay wonderful. The whole place exuded elegance and charm and i would certainly recommend coming here. Although we did experience some issues during our stay these were dealt with courteously and professionally.
Whilst I would like to recognise everyone, I would particularly like to mention Tony and Laura on our checkin and checkout respectively along with Aida in the restaurant and last but not least, Alan the front of house manager. They are really a credit to this hotel.
