Christmas Shopping in Dublin

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas....

We have wonderful Accommodation Packages including breakfast, Prosecco, and secure underground parking.  This December we are also throwing in a free welcome glass of Pommery Champagne for anyone booking a minimum two night stay directly on our website or over the telephone to stay this December.
