InterContinental Dublin

The former Four Seasons Hotel Dublin has found a new lease of life as an InterContinental. Recently the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announced the signing of two new properties in Europe: one in Dublin, Ireland and the other in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Starting in January, the Dublin hotel will operate as an InterContinental through a franchise agreement with Ballsbridge Hotel Limited. Located in the Ballsbridge neighborhood, the hotel has two restaurants, two bars, and a destination spa with an indoor swimming pool and gym. There are 197 guest rooms, and the meeting and event space is extensive (including two ballrooms).
