The Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin – Five Star Luxury
Our Stay in Photos
The Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin is a luxurious Five Star Hotel in the heart of Dublin City and last Sunday Patrick and I had the absolute pleasure of staying there on invite. It was for one night only but was an evening, night, morning and afternoon (in that order) to remember.
Both Patrick and I were familiar with the Fitzwilliam Hotel before we stayed. How could one not be, after all it is the only five-star hotel in Dublin with a Michelin starred restaurant (Thornton’s). However I had dined at the hotel with my sister at Inn on the Green for Late Afternoon Tea and Patrick had, in the past, attended a professional course there. It was hosted in one of their conference rooms.
To say we were excited about our stay was an understatement. We had considered bringing our beautiful ten month old son Smith with us but decided to make it a well deserved date night, just us two … and with Granny gratefully on babysitting duties we left the comfort of our own home and headed into the bright lights of Dublin City to the luxurious comfort of our new home for the night, the Fitzwilliam.
We drove to the hotel, and as we pulled up outside the main entrance there was no room for hesitation about where or how to park because we were warmly greeted by Jarkko (Guest Relations Manager) with a sincere smile and handshake. He arranged for our luggage to be brought inside, our car to be parked and welcomed us to the hotel for our five-star stay.
Check in was a breeze, with the usual signatures requested and then it was on to our room for the night which was on the fourth floor. Our luggage was brought to the room for us (of course) and time for dinner at Citron Restaurant was confirmed.
Styled by world-renowned Interior Designer Sir Terence Conran, the Fitzwilliam Hotel has a modern yet timeless chic about it. Rich colours and patterns fitted to perfection with hints of yesteryear’s old school charm.
Our room with its kingsize four-poster bed, abstract box patterned carpet, striped drapes and boxed designer seating with chequered furnishings felt spacious and could have felt cold but the use of the large gold mirror, soft woollen bed throw and warm lighting along with the mix of rich colours, the room felt far from cold. It was warm, inviting and luxuriously comfortable.
