Number 31, Dublin

Number 31

Dublin, Ireland

A charming, boutique guesthouse on a quiet, residential street, Number 31 offers a quirky alternative to a standard hotel experience. It is set in a Georgian townhouse linked by a small courtyard garden to a modernist mews at the back.

The 21 rooms are spread over the two buildings and are all unique in style, size and layout. Some offer lofty ceilings while others include original architectural features and grand fireplaces. There are also a number of communal areas including a 1950s sunken lounge with a fireplace.

Although Number 31 does not have its own restaurant, it serves an award-winning breakfast. St Stephen’s Green and the main shopping area, Grafton Street, are just a five-to-ten minute walk away.

OUR OPINION:

This is one of our preferred accommodation options in the city — a real hidden gem. Although lacking many standard hotel features, Number 31 is perfect for those looking for a more intimate and unique choice.

Rooms

The 21 rooms are spread over two buildings, one Georgian and one modernist, each of which has a different style with either original period features or pared-back minimalist design. Each room is unique, however, all have been fitted with luxurious beds, pillows and duvets for comfort as well as modern conveniences such as Wi-Fi and a small TV. Each en suite bathroom is fitted with a shower only, to make the most of the space. As it is a converted, original building it is worth noting that some rooms, particularly those on the ground floor, get less natural light.

Location

Number 31 strikes a balance between experiencing a residential side of Dublin and still remaining close to the main sights and shopping areas. St Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street can both be reached on foot in about five to ten minutes.

Food and drink

Breakfast is served in a light and airy communal room on the first floor or on the outside terrace. The hotel is passionate about its offering and ensures seasonal, organic ingredients are used wherever possible.

The guesthouse doesn’t offer lunch or dinner. However, there are a number of small, stylish bars and restaurants in the immediate area.
