Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Groups can celebrate the holiday in style at Doubletree by Hilton Dublin-Burlington Road, in a clubby and cozy Executive Lounge where they can enjoy pints of Guinness and get expert guidance on pouring Ireland’s signature brew.
The Executive Lounge is one of the enhanced amenities at Dublin’s largest luxury hotel for business travelers, which just completed a $21.6 million refurbishment. Formerly The Burlington Hotel, the Doubletree now offers more than 30,000 sf of meeting space:
- A conference center for groups up to 1,400
- A 13,000-sf ballroom
- A separate business floor with 18 technology-equipped meeting rooms
- A business center
- Multiple function rooms
The business floor includes a spacious lobby for entertaining clients and colleagues, and the hotel’s business center has an on-call manager who can assist with event execution. The hotel’s 501 rooms and suites feature large work desks and complimentary WiFi.
The Doubletree is within walking distance of the city’s convention center and is about a 35-minute drive from Dublin Airport. Local attractions include the Dublin Zoo, the boutiques and designer stores on Grafton Street, and homages to Ireland’s many literary masters. The nearby Temple Bar is one of many popular night spots. Those wishing to stay on-site can dine at Sussex Restaurant and meet over drinks at B Bar.
The Executive Lounge is open to select guests or can be purchased as an added amenity. It’s furnished with over-sized tufted-leather chairs and sports a dark wood bar; a continuously rolling video shows the six steps in pouring the perfect Guinness from the lounge’s tap.
