Map of Herbert Park Hotel

The Herbert Park Hotel has a quiet, serene location overlooking lovely Herbert Park in the neighborhood of Ballsbridge. Though few of Dublin's major attractions are within easy walking distance, the hotel is an eight-minute walk from the Lansdowne Road train station that connects to the city center. Many buses pick up and drop off at this point as well and in a taxi, most of Dublin's sights are within a 10 to 15 minute ride. The Ballsbridge neighborhood is home to many restaurants and pubs that locals frequent, for visitors that are looking for an authentic Dublin experience.

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. And then the recession came, and made the city 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 the high point for many tourists.
