Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Incredibly central, overlooking St. Stephen's Green

The Fitzwilliam Hotel is located in the heart of Dublin overlooking St. Stephen's Green. Shopping along Grafton Street, local pubs along Baggot Street, and historic sights are all an easy stroll away. The hotel is also home to the destination restaurant, Thornton's, with one Michelin star.

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 tourists.

  • 22-minute drive to Dublin Airport
  • 1-minute walk to St. Stephen's Green
  • 9-minute walk to Baggot Street, home to local pubs
  • 9-minute walk to Glasnevin Cemetery
  • 12-minute walk to Christ Church Cathedral
  • 12-minute walk to Trinity College
  • 6-minute drive to Guinness Storehouse
  • 9-minute drive to Moore Street food market
  • 10-minute drive to Irish Museum of Modern Art
  • 10-minute drive to Kilmainham Gaol, a former prison, now museum
  • 10-minute drive to St. Patrick's Cathedral
  • 11-minute drive to the National Botanic Gardens
  • 2-hour drive to Belfast
