Wow! Is the first word that comes to my mind when I think of this exquisite, luxurious hotel – mainly because it literally took my breath away. Located adjacent to the gorgeous St. Stephens Green and surrounded by picturesque Georgian buildings this is a prime location for shopping and dining at the finest places Dublin has to offer. Whether you prefer to take a stroll in the park, shop till you drop or feast on traditional Irish cuisine, you absolutely cannot beat the location of The Fitzwilliam Hotel. From my very first phone call when booking my reservation until the last day of departure, the customer service and attention to detail was remarkable.
