“Hard to beat”
Reviewed 2 August 2007

Hard to beat the Four Seasons chain. Dublin one very good, though getting a little tired around the edges. Rooms are great. loads of room, with huge bathrooms. restaurant fine, though only had breakfast. service slightly patchy, and found it very pricey for what it was. staff generally are friendly and professional, which is not as common as it used to be in Ireland. don't bother with the Ice Bar, a dreadful wart on what is otherwise a great hotel. location fine if you know Dublin. can walk to city centre in under 30mins. taxi's difficult to get from the hotel at peak times (morning check out, and then aroun 7-8pm at night). great spot overall.

Spent 4 nights here with my wife and 12-year old son in July. The weather was awful but the hotel was incredible. Great service throughout. The restaurant was superb. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We frequently stay at the Four Seasons around the world and this one met our expectations. This is the only hotel chain in the world which gets it right most of the time and when they make a mistake, they correct it. The only time we don't stay at the Four Seasons is when there isn't one where we are going. They make children feel happy that they are staying with them and that is very important.

We stayed in this hotel a number of times with and without children. We have never been let down and will definately return. We recently tried another five star dublin hotel (the Merrion) and there was no comparrison. We did find the Seasons restaurant a little bit dissapointing but everything else was top class.

Lovely hotel and staff. A nice change from the city centre. Encountered a problem with the heating system in our room, and were promptly relocated. Oppulent common rooms, and attention to detail everywhere! Hans, the doorman is magnificent and always has a smile on his face! A nice walk surrounds the Four Seasons, and thoroughly enjoyed a meal at Roly's Bistro. This truly is a lovely hotel with an ever-accommodating staff!

We stayed here for two nights in June with our son ( 10 years of age). The hotel is absolutely wonderfull. Very nice hotelstaff, and spotlessly clean. We stayed in a deluxe room with a view of the courtyard. The room was very nicely decorated with a very complete but most of all massive bathroom ( especially loved the magnificent bathtub!!!) When we arrived they already knew our names and when we got up to our room, my son was pleasantly suprised with a huge chocolate chip cookie with his name on it. He also loved the mini sized bathrobe :) When our son asked the concierge for a toystore in Dublin he patiently explained to him on a map were he should take us. After he did that my son asked for a taxi and he said that he had an better idea. Next thing we knew the hotel Jaquar drove up with a lovely man named Ron as Chauffeur and brought us to the game store in the city centre. Allong the drive, Ron gave us a private tour through Dublin , explaining all the highlights we passed. As you can imagine this exceeded our higest expectations. But even without this highlight it tops every 5 star hotel we've ever been to!
I have to say that the four season's even tops the Fairmont hotels, which I thought were the best ever...

It is slightly expensive I guess, but I think its not "over"priced though. To us it was worth every penny and would surely book other resorts from this chain!

Just had the most wonderful stay at the Four Seasons Dublin. Check in was swift, polite and friendly and we were delighted to discover, when shown to our room, that we had been upgraded to a suite! This sort of thing rarely happens to someone like me, so we were over the moon. The room was spotless, with a huge lounge, bedroom, dressing room, bathroom and seperate toilet with quality fittings throughout. In fact so taken was i by the bathroom, most in particular the deep soaking bath, that i got my tape measure out and started to plan my own bathroom with similar fittings and layout!
I have stayed at a fair few Four Seasons over the years, and although it doesnt beat the Four Seasons in Chang Mai (it has to be the best hotel in the world!), it definitely comes a close second.

  • Liked — The beautifully appointed bathroom
  • Disliked — The location and the fact that you were not given a bottle of water with the turndown service.
