Historical Traveller Reviews of Four Seasons Dublin Hotel

Four Seasons tops a great weekend

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife, my son and I all stayed at the Four Seasons in Dublin recently for two nights celebrating a 40th birthday. The levels of service were faultless throughout our stay and the extra effort the staff put in really does make a difference. For example, when we checked in my five year old son had his own check in card to fill out asking for his favourite food and sport etc. so they could help him enjoy his stay too. The fact that he couldn't reach the desk was not problem because the receptionist produced a set of steps for him to reach the desk! When we got to our room they had made up a plate of cookies, sweets and drink for my son with his name piped in chocolate. The flowers, champagne and chocolates I had ordered beforehand were also waiting for us.

We dined in the hotel on both nights and again the levels of service were very high indeed. The meal on the second night was particularly memorable, the rare sirloin of beef we both had was a about the best I have experienced anywhere followed by great sorbets, marvellous coffee and properly served tea.

All the departure arrangements were handled expertly, baggage kept by the concierge for us whilst we spent last morning in the hotel and appearing on cue as the taxi arrived oon time to take us back to the airport.

Highly recommended.

Nice hotel, minor service problems

from frogprince
My husband I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early November, 2005. It is exactly what you would expect from a Four Seasons: beautifully decorated public spaces, a gracious staff and nice sleeping rooms with great beds. Our bathroom was clean and modern, with ample counter space for toiletries. We ate two breakfasts in the hotel and found the a la carte entrees to be well-prepared, but service was a little slow. There was also a breakfast buffet which had meats, cheeses, cereals, yogurts and fresh fruit. We had a problem when we asked the concierge to arrange tickets and transportation to a concert. We were told the seats were pre-assigned and that we needed to be at the venue by 6:45 p.m. We rushed through our dinner only to learn that the concert didn't start until 8 p.m., and what was worse, when we got there we learned our seats were in a section of "festival seating". The upshot of this screw-up was that we paid for a private car and driver for several hours longer than we really needed to, and what could have been a very nice dinner was instead, a "hurry up and eat" situation because of the mis-information we received from the concierge. We also paid a lot of money for some very poor concert seats. We are chalking this up to a simple mistake or misunderstanding and not holding it against the hotel but it does suggest a lack of attention to detail on the part of the concierge. The only other minor criticism I have is the location of the hotel. We had to take cabs everywhere we wanted to go, which gets old. I think if I were going to Dublin again I might consider a hotel that is more centrally located, though it would be hard to give up the luxurious atmosphere which this hotel exudes.

Excellent

from topsmed
A very good Four Seasons (they tend to copy concepts across hotels, but this one really does most things right).

Rooms are luxurious and in typical Four Seasons style. Food is of high quality (we had dinner at the Café and Seasons, afternoon tea in the lounge, excellent breakfast buffet + à la carte). The best smoked wild salmon ever. Very good and elegant spa (some fitness equipment slightly dated).

Service for breakfast was poor most days (something I have experienced at several Four Seasons): long waiting times for food ordered à la carte, junior waiting staff. Turndown service is inconsistent and, as in other Four Seasons, not elaborate: no bottle of water, chocolate, etc.

Superior concierge and doorman. One great feature is a complimentary Jaguar to bring the guests to the centre of Dublin, something I have never seen at any hotel.

The atmosphere is typical of Four Seasons: beautiful floral arrangements, live music, candles lit in the evening, a mix of tourists and locals (clearly a place to be seen in Dublin, top-level corporate events were held at the hotel while we were there).

This was my first time in Dublin, but it is hard to believe that other hotels can do better than Four Seasons (with some minor points to improve).

ve ever stayed in by far

from Jodles
I was working in Dublin and lived weekdays for a month at the Four Seasons. Apart from the fact that it's reasonably expensive, I couldn't find a bad word to say. The doormen and concierge knew everyone's names - I never could work out how they remembered them all. The staff were incredibly friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. As I wasn't keen to pay the 5euro cost for morning coffee in the room, they were happy to supply a kettle and tea/coffee to the room - though this isn't standard and has to be asked for. Friends of mine were provided with sterilising equipment and other baby bits and pieces - all free of charge. The pool and jacuzzi are just the ticket after a long day at work. The rooms were always spacious and spotlessly clean, with great bathrooms and walk in showers. The beds are absolutley fabulous - massive and extremely comfortable - I was always disappointed that I had to spend long days in the office and couldn't lounge about at the hotel all day. Breakfast was always great - plentiful choice. I had a fantastic meal in the restaurant one evening - belgian white chocolate soufflet to die for! Finances meant that I spent most other evenings in the more reasonable bistrot or out in local restaurants. Oh to be rich and stay in places like this all the time!

One of the best Four Seasons Anywhere

from samojim
We spent four nights at this hotel in mid-June and have stayed at a number of Four Seasons Hotels before (New York, Phil, Los Angeles). Dublin is as good or better than the others both from a facility and staff perspective. The overall property was top notch, the staff was extremely friendly and the gym was excellent.

Not much more to say, we will only stay here when next in Dublin.

Wonderful

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Four Seasons with my father and his company and it was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and always addressed us by name and the hotel bar was lots of fun. I would definately recommend going to Paddy Cullins which is just down the road.

Always excellent

from frednuff
I have stayed at the 4 Seasons Dublin more than 15 times over the last 15 months and have not been able to fault it. Great service and amenities. Not centrally located but only a 10 Euro taxi fare away.

from Josie929
We just returned from a fantastic trip to Ireland. The Four Seasons is a beautiful first class hotel. I can't say enough about the friendly, helpful, courteous staff. They are some of the best. The hotel rooms are great, the bathrooms spacious and beautiful. The beds and down pillows and comfortors are heavenly. We loved our stay there!

Worth every penny

from BhamJulie
Just got back from The Four Season's Dublin and can't say enough nice things about it. From the great doormen to the wonderful food, rooms and service.....it was all terrific. We were there on business and I wasn't paying for the room, but it's truly one of the best hotels I've stayed in.

Top Local Tips for Dublin

Dublin Pass I got the Dublin Pass for me and my daughter (13). It was not worth the money. We got into alot of the attractions for free without the pass (museums, parks, art center, etc...). Just pay as you go.

Use DART Dublin Area Rapid Transit actually stops one block from 4S and makes stops behind Trinity College downtown (Tara Station), as well as taking you to Howth on the north coast and Dalkey to the south. For 7 euro you can buy a day pass that enables you to visit some very nice suburbs, including everywhere James Joyce walked from his home in the Tower in Sandycove to his teaching job in Dalkey.

Airport transfer Make sure you get taxi driver to take the new tunnel - it'll cost you an extra 5 euros but will save you 30 mins sitting in horrendous Dublin traffic!
