I spent my first night on this trip to Ireland at Number 31, and found it to be as everyone else has described - beautiful rooms, gracious hosts, and an outstanding breakfast. Breakfast is served in a room with a couple of communal tables, which I really liked, since it gave me the opportunity to chat with some other really interesting people who were staying there. I particularly liked the location - in a quiet location but near to St Stephens Green, Iveagh Gardens, and Camden St.
One thing I didn't realize on booking this hotel is that there are actually two buildings; one the modern, original building, and one a Georgian townhouse facing Fitzwilliam St, which shares a garden with the modern building. I was placed in the townhouse, but didn't mind at all - the room I was given was absolutely palatial, with a remarkably beautiful paper light fixture; and the lobby of the townhouse is quite elegant.
Number 31 is a bit above my usual budget, but I'm glad I chose it for my first night in the country - a lovely, restful place in a very good and convenient neighborhood.
