Stauntons on the Green
When the opportunity arose last month to stay at the luxurious townhouse hotel ‘Stauntons on the Green‘ it felt like a phoenix rising from the ashes. The phoenix being ‘restrictions eased’ and the ashes; the ‘COVID-19 lockdown’.
The stay was a night away for just the two of us. And parental guilt was left at the door, as our two little boys safely enjoyed their own night away with their first sleepover in six months. We packed a small suitcase, with ‘going out’ clothes as dinner in a restaurant was also planned. And along with our face masks and hand sanitisers, we made our way to Stephens Green in Dublin City Centre.
Stauntons on the Green is a Georgian Gem
Looking out over Stephens Green Park, with its own courtyard and garden along with a private entrance to the tranquil Iveagh Gardens, there’s nowhere else like it. And as we eased back into a ‘new normal’ for how we enjoy our hotel stay experiences. I can honestly say that there’s nowhere else I would have preferred to allow us to do so.
From the moment we entered the hotel, to our farewells, our stay was thoroughly enjoyable. Yes there was a screen at reception and hand sanitising stations throughout the hotel. We did have to book our breakfast in advance, and were wary of keeping our distance. But these ‘changes’ felt like second nature, and they didn’t infringe on the beauty of the hotel, the service we received, and how much we enjoyed spending time relaxing in our room, sipping coffee in the garden or delighting in the delicious breakfast that was served to us the next morning.
Stauntons on the Green Assistant Manager, John and his team, provided an excellent service from check-in, to check-out, with coffee and breakfast in between. Our stay was one to remember, and we look forward to returning again.
