A 2013 renovation transformed this hotel's interiors into a showcase of chic, contemporary design, without forgetting a few homey touches. The riverfront location in central Dublin is superb, with most of the city center within walking distance. Rooms also have an uber-modern aesthetic, and include impressive tech to match. A few don't have external windows, though. The restaurant, dining room, and bar are also interesting spaces worth spending some time in. It's not the cheapest option, however, so if quirky contemporary is your thing, compare rates with The Morgan the other side of the river.
