Visitors to Dublin are attracted by its bustle as much as by its history, and The Spencer Hotel offers access to both -- it’s 15 minutes’ walk from O’Connell Street and close to the 3Arena venue (formerly The O2) and Bord Gais Energy Theatre. Part of the Fitzpatrick Hotel group, this boutique hotel uses cutting-edge design to offer unique, modern accommodation.
On the north bank of the River Liffey, the hotel is just 20 minutes’ walk from both the Temple Bar area and Trinity College. Plenty of Dublin’s attractions are within walking distance of the hotel and, if you don’t fancy the walk, buses stop outside the property, and the Mayor Square stop of Dublin’s light rail system is three minutes’ walk away.
Part of the fun of a city break lies in looking for restaurants, but The Spencer has its own not-so-hidden gem on site -- East Restaurant offers Pan-Asian cuisine in a sleek setting. The Lounge has a relaxed ambience, a more informal menu and a fireplace, while the tranquil Zen Garden offers coffee or cocktails. The hotel’s facilities also include a gym, 18-metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.
Rooms follow a modern, minimalist theme, with floor-to-ceiling windows and mood lighting. All feature a rainforest power shower and free Wi-Fi. Deluxe King Rooms are more spacious (some have private balconies), and come with fluffy bathrobes -- Suites are even larger. Family rooms have private balconies and an extra sofa bed for up to two children.
