InterContinental Dublin – Five Star Luxury

Our Stay in Photos

InterContinental Dublin is a luxurious Five Star Hotel in the leafy red-bricked neighbourhood of Ballsbridge. Surrounded by landscaped gardens it’s a pretty walk of about 40 mins through old Georgian Dublin to Grafton Street in Dublin City Centre, or about 15 mins by car or taxi.

The RDS is only around the corner, the Aviva Stadium only minutes away and there are numerous public parks to admire throughout the year. If you’re interested in going further afield, Sandymount Train Station is only a five-minute walk away which opens up a whole other adventure of the Dublin coastline.

Our bedroom was gorgeous, big is beautiful and so was our bed. The antique vanity table and chair, the wardrobe with hidden flat screen T.V., brought the old with the new.

Again the large window with balcony looked out onto Dublin and the evening as the sun began to set. The turn down service meant we were treated to perfectly fluffed pillows for the night. What really melted my heart though was the attention to detail that was given to Smith’s bed for the night. His cot was carefully dressed and made with crisp sheets. There were toiletries laid out for him, along with his own ‘Baby Sleeping’ door hanger. Very sweet.

The suite’s bathrooms. Yes that is plural, were fab. The main bathroom had all the trimmings you’d expect from a Five Star establishment, and more …
