The Westbury hotel is one of the most well-known 5* hotels in the centre of the city located just off the main thoroughfare of Grafton St. Established in 1984 by Irish businessman P.V. Doyle, the hotel is member of prestigious Leading Hotels of the World and remains a firm favourite with locals and international guests alike. While the iconic Gallery and high quality standards will never change the hotel are always looking to upgrade and renovate to stay as relevant and luxurious as the rest of the 5* pack.
The Westbury has always had a commitment to the best of International and Irish design and to continue this tradition they have teamed up with National College of Art and Design for their fabulous afternoon tea. This collaboration is genius as is features a unique collection of beautifully handcrafted pastries and cakes that have taken inspiration from prolific third and fourth year graduates pieces of art. Colour, print, pleating, stitch and construction are all translated beautifully into a magnificent experience not to be missed and an art exhibition on your plate!
While on the subject of the dining available in the Westbury, their restaurant Wilde has just had a makeover. The central design ethos fuses 1930s elegance with an abundance of greenery, giving guests the sense of alfresco dining while overlooking the bustling intersection of Harry Street and Grafton St – the perfect place to people watch from afar! It serves carefully selected dishes – a mix of classic and around the world – matched with their signature Irish G&T’s. Wilde takes pride in its sourced Irish produce and nods to the old and ventures into the new and exciting world of fine dining.
The latest offering from the Westbury is The Sidecar, a modern take on a classic 1930s style cocktail bar. With a broad range of classic cocktails made with an old school flair, this is the place to hide away from the world. Martinis are the signature drink served from a unique tableside trolley – this bar is aimed for the discerning cocktail enthusiast and culture clientele.
