In the heart of the city, The Fitzwilliam Hotel in Dublin is a luxurious hotel situated between the infamous St. Stephen’s Green and city shopping Mecca known as Grafton Street. A five-star property with chic décor and modern design, this hotel is not what you would expect traveling to the Irish city.

White Egyptian linen covers each plush bed, topped with a duck down duvet leaving you practically immobile and wanting to stay in bed all day. In deluxe rooms guests can enjoy an espresso or breakfast while overlooking the green surroundings on their private balcony. Colorful patterns consume the room with a fuchsia throw blanket adorning the bed with a violet tufted headboard. Fresh orchids and freesia decorate each coffee or side table while gold-framed mirrors encapsulate the suite.

Located on the third floor of the hotel, The Spirit Beauty Salon offers extensive tranquility options for guests. Holistic therapist and Dublin’s most experienced beautician, Ursula Daly, provides a range of services for relaxation. Those who seek out a day of pampering while in Dublin can enjoy regenerating facials, deep stone massages, a body wrap, and nail services. Unlike salons in the states, clients have personalized attention from an experienced therapist they can trust and who they are able to contact directly.
