Making the decision to stay in Dublin's Conrad Hotel is a doozy.
Not because of the location – it could hardly be better, a stone’s throw from St Stephen’s Green – or the comfort – high, modern European luxe, especially after their big refurb in 2016.
No, the decision to choose the Conrad is a doozy simply because the staff in the hotel are superb. At every point, there is a team member who is doing their best to read your mind, which is exactly what a friend who stayed here had written to us: “Every member of staff were fantastic and friendly, helpful and welcoming, even the cleaning team were smiley and welcoming. There must be a good working atmosphere…. you know, happy managers equal happy staff. It was as if everything I wanted was right there…”
Lemuel’s Bar is a great place for meeting up, and even doing some serious work, before you explore the cocktail list, whilst Alfie Byrne’s bar in the basement is home to a brilliant selection of craft beers. The menu selection at breakfast in the Coburg is an A1 example of how to source good ingredients – Bretzel breads; G’s jams; Kilkenny bacon; Dublin sausages; Gleilen dairy products; cheeses from Cork and Tipperary. But it is th staff who bring everything together, and make the Conrad rather special.
