Trinity Townhouse is Dublin’s newest Townhouse just steps away from Grafton Street, Trinity College, and a host of other attractions.
Set on South Frederick Street, Trinity Townhouse is a 31-bedroom boutique hotel set within 3 listed Georgian buildings enjoying an enviable address in the heart of Dublin city centre. The discreet entrance to the pretty townhouse is located at number 29, and once inside the hotel exudes an easy, welcoming charm. In the quiet lobby and reception area, several Irish artworks are on display and of note are those works thoughtfully commissioned from Irish artist, Christine Bowen, to complement not just the lobby but each bedroom in the house.
Originally built as private residences in the 1730s, Trinity Townhouse is a fine example of authentic Georgian accommodation for savvy business and leisure travellers. The carefully refurbished buildings capture the elegance and graciousness of past times, matched with contemporary style and modern-day comfort.
It is not hard to imagine the rich history of the buildings and their previous occupants given its adjacency to Trinity College.
A stone’s throw from Grafton Street – Dublin’s most exclusive shopping district- as well as restaurants, museums and galleries, Trinity Townhouse houses the acclaimed new restaurant Allta, operated by Chef Niall Davidson. It is from here that guests can enjoy a continental breakfast box conveniently delivered to each room before exploring attractions such as Trinity College, National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street, the National Gallery on Merrion Square, the new Museum of Literature on St Stephen’s Green, all of which are less than ten minutes-walk away.
Each elegant bedroom at Trinity Townhouse is unique and styled to best suit its size and position within the house. Original fireplaces, coving, dado rail, ceiling roses, architraves on windows, and other architectural details have been carefully preserved.
Rooms have been decorated using a palette of 2 colour schemes: warm hay and sunny golden tones, and heather with lavender hues, both perfectly complementing walnut joinery. Linen and wool fabrics all unite, silk cushions and brass fittings all combine to present warmth and comfort.
Crucially, all bedrooms offer the practicalities price-sensitive travellers expect such as complimentary Wi-Fi, air conditioning, tea and Nespresso coffee making machines and a Samsung smart TV.
Reflecting the age of the buildings and conservation guidelines, en-suite bathrooms with showers are compact and modern in style, with Ritual beauty products.
Rooms are graded from Cosy to Superior King and no two rooms are the same in size or with the exact same view. Pricing starts at €120 to include bed and breakfast in low season and from €180 in high season.
Guests can conveniently park their car next door in the Setanta Carpark and discounted rates are available to residents.
Whether on business or on a city break, Trinity Townhouse is a tranquil spot in a busy city with all the hallmarks of its sister property in the country, Sheen Falls Lodge in Kenmare, Co. Kerry.
