Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Dublin Review (DUB)
If you are looking for a well-situated, funky hotel in Dublin— clock-in at the Radisson Blu Royal!
Situated directly behind Dublin castle, it’s close to all the sites and sounds that draw visitors to this city in droves: Temple Bar, Trinity College, and the aforementioned castle.
Here’s a review of my recent stay:
This hotel was not inexpensive by any stretch of the imagination. However, it's worth every penny - especially if you're looking for space. The rooms were massive – even by North American standards.
Mine came equipped with a King Bed and a sitting area – and there was still tons of space to spare. The room had a hip décor with bright fuchsia and lime green accents.
The bathroom was equally huge.
It had a separate walk-in shower and tub area that allowed one to spread out! I only wish my bathroom back home was as big – or as mod!!
The bath products were from ‘thisworks.’ They're excellent, but after seeing them in every single Raddison (except the Kenilworth) I only wish they varied up the ‘flavors’ on offer throughout the chain.
The crowning touch - the riche in-room Nespresso coffee maker. It’s always a thrill to find one of these treasures in a hotel - -and I always make sure it gets fully utilized.
The Radisson Blu Dublin put on a comprehensive spread for breakfast. Traditional Irish and European favorites were offered on an extensive buffet.
The place was pretty busy the mornings – but there was PLENTY of food. It was a great start to the day – and I really wasn’t hungry until dinner!
The hotel has a large lobby bar that's equipped with massive couches to sink into. Understandably they had a wide selection of Whiskies – and the bar tenders were well versed in their Irish spirits!
Glam in Ireland does not come cheap – but if you are looking for something hip in Dublin that is located close to all the sites this is the place for you. I loved the ambiance and overall feel for this property!
Radisson Blu are normally slick – and their property in Dublin doesn’t dissapoint!
