“Stylish, luxurious and superbly opulent, The Westbury Hotel sits is the most perfect location in Dublin City. With Grafton’s Street on your doorstep, you have Stepehen’s Green to your right and Trinity College to your left it is the perfect location for a family hotel in Dublin.

Fun Tippees can be arranged in deluxe rooms and the colouring books with a little guide to what kids should look out for nearby offers plenty of entertainment for downtime in your stay. Even the colouring pencils come with a little sharpener attached showing the attention to the finer details of The Westbury Hotel to ensure all guests no matter how small have the perfect stay!
With Valet Parking for only €25 per night, from the moment you arrive you can relax. You can take the Luas from Abbey street to Heuston train station and Dublin Zoo is an easy ten minute walk from there. Alternatively you can take the C3 or C4 bus from Westmoreland street to Parkgate street with a similar walking distance to the zoo. However, if I can give you one piece of advice, don’t book too many activities and just savour the truly luxurious experience that The Westbury Hotel can offer. Take a stroll to see the Book of Kells in Trinity College and ramble around St. Stephen’s Green and may be stop off in The Disney Store on your way back!
Balfes Bistro and Wilde Restaurant have options to suit all families and are both popular dining destinations for Dublin residents and visitors alike due to the ambience and gourmet delights they can offer! Consequently, continuing the relaxed vibe by booking your dinner in the hotel and take a seat after dinner for a little nightcap before bed!
