Built in a row of simple white townhouses, The Address blends extremely well into its surroundings considering how exceptional the interior is. Warm lighting and ambient music in the grand lobby exude calming energy. Each of the 72 newly-refurbished rooms has luxurious bedding and state-of-the-art entertainment systems. Big windows keep things light and airy, while Irish blankets add a homey feel. Bedside buttons control the lights, curtains, and the housekeeping message beside the door. There are also plenty of plugs and USB ports throughout. The buffet breakfast is served in the adjacent North Star Hotel, and includes a wide selection of cereals, bread, pastries, fruit, yoghurts, and nuts in addition to full Irish fixings and a pancake conveyor belt.
Time Out tip: Don’t miss a meal at the onsite McGettigan’s Cookhouse. The exposed brick, leather chairs, succulents, and copper light fixtures are decidedly of-the-moment, but European meals are best described as classic comfort. Light sleepers beware that the convenience of the well-connected Connolly station could become a boisterous burden at night and bring the appropriate accessories.
Brew Dock: For craft and homemade brews served by sociable staff
