THE WEST­BURY DUBLIN

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Escape -

Post-re­ces­sion Dublin is a friendly, dy­namic city filled with live mu­sic (Whe­lan’s), food trucks (the Bernard Shaw) and quirky beauty par­lours (Trop­i­cal Popi­cal is Saoirse Ronan’s favourite). Af­ter its re­cent re­fur­bish­ment, there’s no bet­ter place to lay your head than on the supremely fluffy pil­lows at the West­bury, which is a haven right in the cen­tre of the ac­tion. Some­thing of an Ir­ish in­sti­tu­tion, the ho­tel boasts a new look of roll-top baths, vel­vet arm­chairs and an art deco-style bar, the Side­car. The restau­rant, Wilde, re­flects Dublin’s fast-emerg­ing culi­nary scene with won­der­ful dishes in­clud­ing grilled gi­ant prawns and baked Alaska with peach and sour cherry. lucy halfhead
