Westin Dublin Opens Irish Writers’ Rooms

Dublin has named nine of its newly refreshed guest rooms after Irish writers.

These nine Writers’ Rooms offer a little extra ‘character’, with a different feature in each room – a balcony, a quirky layout or an interesting view – setting it apart. Named after poets and playwrights, satirists and scribes, the Writers’ Rooms are now known as the Patrick Kavanagh, the Bram Stoker, the Flann O’Brien, the John Millington Synge, the Sean O’Casey, the Dion Boucicault, the Jonathan Swift, the Edmund Burke and the Maria Edgeworth.

Westin Dublin Deluxe King

The hotel’s 163 guest rooms have now all undergone a complete refurbishment and feature deep-buttoned chocolate leather and delicate shades of cream, silvery green, beige and champagne, to create a calm yet luxurious atmosphere. Woven patterns in carpets were inspired by some of the masterworks of Irish manuscript illustration.

Each refurbished room features a Mediahub, allowing guests to stream audio and video from their laptop, iPad or smartphone to the bedroom television, while new bathrooms include frameless shower screens creating a greater sense of space.

Four of The Westin Dublin’s most luxurious suites – known as Library Suites – are already named after George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, W.B. Yeats and Oscar Wilde.
