“Elegant, comfortable and grand 5-star hotel in a pleasant part of Dublin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2010

Stayed here for 4 nights in June 2010. It was an unforgettable experience! Elegant 5-star hotel with wonderful staff. Room was very comfortable and spacious; the bed was super-plush! Room service was quite good and the service was prompt. A little far out from the city center and the tourist attractions there but is located in a pretty neighborhood.

The Four Seasons is consistent in its delivery of excellence. I have been fortunate enough to have stayed here many times since it first opened - but of course, when things are excellent - one tends not to review - so here goes! - Its rooms are really nice, particularly the bigger rooms (cost more of course). The food in the main seasons restaurant - I think is the best in Dublin and the last time that I stayed - the breakfast had improved immensely from the previous time - with greater selections offered and it was served in the main seasons restaurant again (the previous time I stayed during a quieter period - it was served in the tea room in front).
This is a good time to get a great rate and to try this hotel. Try to get the breakfast included in the booking price as it is way to expensive to pay for it separately!! (there are good offers to be had)
The hotel is in a nice area - with nice walks to the sea - if you have the time to find them out.
It is a good walk to the centre - thought.
For me, this hotel is the best in Dublin! I have stayed with my two children and the attention given to children is fantastic! They have received tee-shirts - toys at Christmas - cookies with their names on them! - really nice touches. (Stay at Christmas time - for a really festive atmosphere - ginger bread towns etc...)
Go on - give yourself a treat!! It is worth it!!

This is my second stay at the four seasons Dublin and what a change from my first stay a few years ago! Gone was the automatic valet parking, the reception staff seemed confused and tried to convince me i was receiving an upgrade when in fact i had booked the larger room and although the room was large it was uninspiring and looked dated, also there was no free wifi something you would expect when paying hundreds of Euros for a room, the bed was uncomfortable and seemed to me it needed a new mattress. We had dinner in the restaurant on two nights and i must report we found the staff very friendly and helpful but the food let it down, great hotels have great restaurants unfortunitly this is no longer a great hotel.

We arrived here for a 2 night stay to celebrate my five year old daughters birthday,it's only a few minutes walk from the DART station or bus stop.
First impressions it was luxurious from top to bottom,on walking up the walkway the courteous and very pleasant bellhop met us and relieved us of our lugguage.
.
Check-in was great the receptionist was friendly,she gave my little girl a kids check in form and had a little step up for my daughter to reach the desk pointed out resturant and explained everything.The bellhop got us ice & couldn't have been more helpful
.
My daughter got a surprise when she discovered a big cookie and sweets with her name on it wishing her a happy birthday!The room itself was wonderful plenty of space bed and pillows wwere the most comfortable I've ever experienced in a hotel,the bathroom was a dream,bathrobes/towels soft including a kiddie sized one,there was l'occitane toileteries for us and jungle care toileteries specifically for children.Shower was wonderful and buth tub was lovely and deep.

The tea room where we had afternoon tea have wonderful staff who gave great advice regarding the menu,served our order promptly didn't rush us & the ambience was beautiful and comfortable.

Room service at night was quick, food hot and tasty.Option to have breakfast via room service also,newspaper left outside.Breakfast was great the first morning with separate menu for kids and kid friendly cartooned plate/cup service was good other than having to request butter to be brought to table which was rock hard but food was delicious, on the second morning however even though it was quiet we were left waiting to be seated for ten minutes while the manager was talking on the phone then once our coffee order was taken we were left with the menu only nobody came to take our order despite waiting for ages ,eventually we just went to the buffet which was disappointing.

The swimming pool was nice,changing room was fab with everything you could really hope for the staff member on duty gave my daughter a kids float the first day although on the second he was quite brusque informing us we could only stay a half hour, I was quite aware going down that kids were only allowed up to 8pm which should have gave us an hour,no offer of a float this time,opps!!

Smoking area is in the front of hotel complete with tvs and cushioned seating.

You can access your bill through your tv so thatt's handy,you have to watch out for the extras because they really do add up quite easily.

Concierge very friendly had a folder with lots of kids dvds on lend which we used both nights.

Courtesy car into town which we requested doesn't operate until afternoon I think it's 1pm so we made do with taxi.

Security great,access to lifts by keycard only.

Checkout was quick.

All in all a very pleasant stay the majority of the staff are friendly and helpful. :)

This hotel is located in an affluent & peaceful area about a 20 min (pleasant) walk from the city centre.
You are special the moment you arrive at the door of the Four Seasons!
We have stayed many times & the service is fantastic. Lobby/Bar area is fantastic for all day food. Ample portions, so tasty & a really watch the world go by atmosphere. Outside & indoor seating. Breakfast buffet is ample too (better if you have a B&B rate) as it's pricey. Dining room is beautiful. We usually do one night room service becuase it is simply great food & served so nicely to your room.

Rooms are spacious, v. comfortable & peaceful. Turn down service is the best with everything replenished. Bathroom amenities are L'occitane,gorgeous!

We have stayed with our toddler most recently & also when she was a few months old. Each time baby cot /crib provided as well as some baby amenities. Children's menus are also provided at all meal times. Staff are extremely welcoming & friendly to children. I would highly recommend this hotel because if children are happy parents can relax & be happy!

We also stayed here to attend a concert at the RDS. This is a brilliant idea combining the concert with the luxury hotel next door (esp in Ireland when it might rain). It's a nice idea to dress up after the concert & go to the ICE bar for a few drinks. ICE bar is stylish so it's nice to make the effort. Staff there are super friendly, not the 'too cool' type staff you get in some establishments.

From the moment we arrived we felt the Four Seasons touch: attentive and very professional service from the staff. The hotel is beautifully decorated, with numerous well-chosen pieces of art. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a couple of Junior Suites: these were substantially larger than the website suggests: I reckon about 120 sq m each including bathrooms, foyer, walk-in wardrobe, alcoves etc. Huge comfortable beds.

The spa only has a narrow pool but it was generally quiet and so was uncrowded. It has its own secret sunken garden. The saunas and steam rooms are separate in the male and female change areas. Restful music gets one in the mood.

The excellent breakfast consisted of a cold buffet and a served hot breakfast on weekdays but was "enhanced" by a hot buffet at weekends, although a served breakfast was still an option.

We ate once in Seasons Restaurant at lunchtime and once in Seasons Cafe in the evening: expensive even for Dublin, but really good ingredients very well cooked and presented, so we felt it was worth it.

The location is somewhat out of the centre. Options for getting in to Dublin include the free chauffeur-driven limo (just ask at the door, if he is there he will take you, no reservations), a taxi from the rank just outside (€10), or three stops along on the DART train - a short walk away.

€22 per day for Wifi (ouch), but there are three computers with free wired internet in the business centre.

Stayed on a 1 night business trip, eat in the lobby bar, excellent food & service. My bedroom was what you would expect, clean, quite and well laid out. My room rate was a competative against other 5 stars in Dublin, but added extras (Breakfast & Car Parking) increased the value. Over an excellent stay.
