Lonely Planet review
Probably the city's most distinctive property, this is the former home of modernist architect Sam Stephenson, who created here a stunning homage to the style and cool of the 1960s: cue the theme music to Austin Powers. As you enter this magnificent home, only five minutes' walk from St Stephen's Green, with its sunken sitting room, leather sofas, mirrored bar, Perspex lamps and ceiling-to-floor windows, you are enveloped in an oasis of stylish calm. Its 21 bedrooms are split between the retro coach house, with its fancy rooms, and the more gracious Georgian house, through the garden, where rooms are individually furnished with tasteful French antiques and big comfortable beds. Gourmet breakfasts with kippers, homemade breads and granola are served in the conservatory. Yeah, baby!
Our independent authors have visited Number 31 and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Dublin.
