The hotel also has an upscale restaurant, Wilde, named after the writer Oscar Wilde, a casual restaurant called Balfes, and the Marble Bar. When booking, be sure to read the fine print: Some packages come with breakfast and Wi-Fi while others do not.
In the very heart of Dublin, steps from the center of Grafton Street
The Westbury has one of the most central locations in all of Dublin, steps from Grafton Street. This pedestrian avenue is famous for shopping and "buskers" or street performers -- some of which have gained international notoriety. Most attractions are within easy walking distance, including St. Stephen's Green, Temple Bar, nightlife along Baggot Street, Trinity College, Christ Church, and more. The location is also very central for utilizing the Dublin Bus service or hailing a taxi.
Dublin has changed dramatically in the last 15 years. First there was the boom of the Celtic Tiger that brought great development and growth to the city. As a result of this wave of wealth, the city now has a cosmopolitan feel that it never had before. Since the economic bust, restaurants and hotels have generally retained the same quality, but the city is less expensive. Dublin has beautiful gardens, museums, and theaters, but it is the everyday things in the Irish capital -- like sitting in a local pub and having a pint -- that are a high point for many visitors.
