Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Trinity Capital, bang in the city centre and opposite Trinity College, has a few surprises hidden up its sleeve. You can forget about any ideas of elegance and refined style; here, the decor is exuberant, elaborate, out of the ordinary, and full of contrasts. Although the communal spaces are full of curiosities, the rooms are quite the opposite!

    Location 8.14 /10

    This establishment is located opposite Trinity College in Dublin 2, right at the heart of the city. Count on 30 to 40 minutes to get to the international airport from Dublin, you never know with the traffic jams!

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The hotel's 178 guest rooms are all decorated in a similar manner. They consist of Georgian suites (which can serve as family rooms), mini suites (with a whirlpool bath), double rooms (18 have king size beds), and triple, twin, and single rooms. The standard rooms are decorated in dark colours and are fitted with an orange and black carpet. The higher the category, the larger the room. The rooms are equipped with a television with 12 channels (92 of the rooms have a plasma screen television) and a keyboard, tea and coffee-making facilities, an iron and ironing board, a safe, and a telephone. The bathrooms are clean, modern spaces decorated in brown and white, and are fitted with a bathtub (except 15 rooms that have a shower instead), a large mirror, a hair dryer, a magnifying mirror, and hospitality products. The rooms looking over the inner courtyard don't have much of a view, but they are really nice and quiet. The same cannot be said of the suites, which have a view of both the courtyard and the street on the other side. The suites do not boast any Georgian features and they are not served by a lift either, as the building's listed status means it cannot be transformed. Room service is available at mealtimes.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Opened in May 2000 and renovated in 2003, this hotel stands in a very busy street at the heart of the city. Its external appearance displays no hint of what the Trinity Capital looks like on the inside. Indeed, once through its doors, you'll need a bit of time to acclimatise to the style, which is quite different to anything you might have seen before. From the street, the building you see is the listed Georgian wing consisting of several 4 storey houses dating back to the start of the 19th century. However, once through the entrance, you find yourself in a comfy and elaborately decorated small lounge area that gives the first hint of the weird and wonderful surroundings to come. The 3 armchairs in the entrance hall have backs taller than a person standing straight. A magnificent collection of 19th century leather travel cases is expertly displayed behind the long, wooden counter in the reception area. Enormous, heavy chandeliers also hang from the ceiling of this cheerful, welcoming room, which is further adorned by a handsome fireplace framed by atlases. Meanwhile, bold colours burst forth from every nook and cranny. The reception extends into the long stylish bar, which gets very busy come nightfall. Next, there is a big space with picture windows and at its centre is the hotel's inner courtyard, where there are 4 round wrought iron tables for smokers. From here you can see the modern 6 storey building (totally lacking in charm) that houses some more of the hotel's room. All in all, the accommodations here are divided among 3 buildings. As you explore the various spaces, you will find yourself face to face with yet more impressive and unusual objects, for example the dragon sculptures, large Moroccan horsemen, and interesting copies of stamps from all over the world... The hotel was decorated by the owner, who loves collecting things and brings all kinds of objects back from his journeys to far-off places.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel's main restaurant is adorned with mosaics and can seat up to 80 guests. It serves breakfast as a buffet from 7:00am to 10:00am during the week and from 8:00am to 11:00am at weekends. The kitchens are open behind the counter, so you can watch the cooks busy at work. Alternatively, you can look out onto the inner courtyard through the picture windows, which are framed by heavy curtains. The restaurant is a pleasant room with high-backed chairs and wooden tables. An integral part of the decor in the dining room is the long and finely worked article of furniture displaying various casks and jars of fruit preserved in alcohol. The other meals of the day are taken in the various communal spaces in front and around this room: you are free to choose. Dinner is more elaborate than lunch, but there still isn't a great deal of choice on the menu. A second part of the restaurant is furnished with chairs and low benches covered in red and brown leather. At the bar, you can order from the Cairo Lunch Menu, which consists of 3 burgers, a salad, 4 light dishes, and 2 sandwiches. One of the rooms used for conventions can be used for private dinners.

    To know

    There are 2 computers in the entrance area, and free Wifi access is provided in all the communal areas. Four rooms have been designed especially for guests with reduced mobility. A transfer from the airport to the hotel is provided free of charge.

      The Days Inn Talbot is next to O'Connell Street. It lacks charm, but is well-kept and very functional. You couldn't be better located for a look around the city's must-see sites: it is the perfect base for a no-frills break.

      The Davenport hotel is housed in a former church which dates back to 1863 and enjoys a central location not far from Trinity College and St. Stephen's Green park. Needless to say, its façade is unique, and the fine interior decor is impeccable as the hotel was renovated at the end of 2008. Basically, this is a good place to stay for those who like to keep it simple!

      The Ripley Court is not a particularly notable hotel, except for the fact that it is set back from O'Connell street and therefore ideally located to go and see matches at Croke Park or a concert at the O2 Arena. Moreover, its practical guest rooms are not too small and safety is one of the hotel's main assets!

It is one of the city's most trendy establishments where it is great to stop in, have a drink, dance, or even stay. A highly contemporary and stylish boutique hotel that you're sure to fall in love with, unless the noise of Temple Bar gets to you first!

      This large, handsome and classic hotel is partly housed in the building of a former bank opposite Trinity College. Some wonderful traces of its past are still present in parts of the hotel, like the great hall where events are organised and the bar in the former strongroom, where guests can sip on award-winning cocktails. The delicious afternoon tea is another unmissable aspect of any stay in this highly comfortable establishment.

      Tucked away in a posh residential area in the south of Dublin, the Four Seasons lives up to the group's famous reputation for luxury. While there is not much to do in the surrounding area, the hotel itself has plenty to fill both guests' days and evenings, whether it be in the restaurant, one of the three bars, or the superb spa and swimming pool. Unless you're in Dublin on business, in which case note that the hotel has no fewer than six meeting rooms.

Reopened in February 2013 after 10 weeks of refurbishment, The Morrison now boasts a designer interior - a rare choice of decor in this city where most hotels are decorated in a more classic style. Add to this the delicious restaurant and the art gallery, and The Morrison is unquestionably a safe bet in Dublin.

      The beautiful 5-star Dylan Hotel was not built in honour of the famous rock star. No, the Dylan simply chose to take up residence in the street of the same name. Now a small hotel with 44 guest rooms, the Dylan was first a hospital, then a hotel, before becoming the Dylan Hotel. It has been welcoming guests into its entirely unique, modern and elegant interior since 2007. Far from being a chain hotel, the Dylan has a bar, restaurant and lounge, but unfortunately no well-being centre.

Apart from the massage rooms, sauna and hammam, the hotel also has a lovely large swimming pool, which is quite rare for the Irish capital. Neither too big nor too small, the Clarion Hotel enjoys a privileged location at the heart of the city centre, on the banks of the River Liffey.
