2012 Overall “Best Hotel Bar” Winner from the National Hospitality Awards. 

Tucked away on the first floor, the Library Bar is a haven of peaceful luxury. The welcoming atmosphere and the fine furnishings make it a popular venue for daytime business meetings, morning coffee, light lunches, afternoon tea, pre-dinner drinks, and even a nightcap before retiring.

No wonder people who love the library Bar are trying to keep it a secret for the fear it will become overrun! Enjoy a glass or two of Dublin’s famous brew Guinness or a Jameson on the rocks, or for the Ladies a nice shot of Baileys. After shopping at nearby Brown Thomas on Grafton it is the ideal venue to unwind. Going to the Theatres nearby, drop in for a relaxing aperitif.

The Library bar was voted No 1 pub for Guinness in Dublin! by a major travel company in 2010. The ideal getaway in our Dublin City Centre Hotel!

The Secret Bar – ……While these entries might not be secrets to everyone, they will offer some people a new sense of adventure. Dublin is a small city but offers a surprising amount of things to see and do if you look a little closer. I have spent the last few months reading and exploring areas of Dublin I had not ventured before and come up with six of my favourites.Walk through the doors beneath the marble green mosaic sign and take the carpeted stairs to the left. Everything around you looks immediately enchanting; the couches, the armchairs stuck in anonymous inlets and corners. The bar itself is simple taking up only one corner. The room is beautifully refined. There are slightly worn chairs, coffee tables and cabinets full of hardbacks, their covers fashioned with stitching. It is one of the most relaxed places to enjoy a drink with that special someone looking out on George’s St after a long hard day’s shopping.

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city in our famous Dublin city Hotel Bar!
