WHERE TO STAY
The Dean hotel
Exactly the sort of unique, boutique hotel that I favour and if you like your hotels to be positively overflowing with quirky features such as Smeg fridges, record players and much, much more, I’ve no hesitation whatsoever in suggesting you head to The Dean Hotel the next time you descend upon Dublin.
WHAT TO SEE
St. Stephen’s Green – Victorian park
Dún Laoghaire – a beautiful seaside town, located just 13km south-east of Dublin City Centre. In love with its East Pier!
RESTAURANTS & BARS
Sophie’s – a glasshouse restaurant & bar where the weather is the wallpaper, in the Dean hotel.
Sam’s bar – perfect for cocktails and sharing platters surrounded by funky murals and vintage accents.
Dolce Sicily – little pit stop in the basement of the Design House, on Dawson street.
