The Westbury Hotel, The Doyle Collection – Dublin

The Westbury Hotel, The Doyle Collection – Dublin

The westbury Hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of Dublin. Briefly explore the centre of Dublin and you will quickly realise the prime area to stay. Somewhere close to the verdant expanse of St Stephens Green perhaps, near to the vibrant creative quarter and nightlife of Temple Bar, within strolling distance of the historic Trinity College and Dublin Castle whilst having easy access to the shopping of Grafton Street.

Not too long ago a night at an English pub was something to be studiously avoided. Most likely it would mean being consigned to a stuffy room up a back staircase, and a breakfast at a pub table with a whiff of stale beer. Things are now hugely improved with […]
