The mews door opens, you take several steps across the walled courtyard, then you step in the door of No 31, and a glimpse of the Picasso print on the wall signals that you are in that rarest of Dublin destinations: a modernist masterpiece. If you have always wanted to have your own villain’s lair, straight from a James Bond movie starring Sean Connery, then here it is, a step away from Dublin’s Leeson street. Actually, No 31 is two houses: a 60’s-era modernist mews, and a fine Georgian house that opens onto Fitzwilliam Street. Noel Comer and his team unite the two architectural elements with their brilliant hospitality, and some great breakfast cooking, with the morning’s breads baked by Linda an especial treat. There is nowhere else – nowhere – quite like No 31: you owe it to your inner Bond villian to stay in this Dublin classic.
