Providing first class comfort for guests is the aim of Dublin's newest hotel The Berkeley Court.

The Berkeley Court, Ballsbridge, Dublin is the newest hotel owned by PV Doyle.

At £25 a night for a single bed, the majority of us will never be able to afford its delights.

The two hundred bedroom hotel is situated on the corner of Shelbourne Road and Lansdowne Road. 

Inside, it provides the standard demanded by wealthy American and continental guests.

With an emphasis on first-class comfort, the luxury hotel is indicative of the upward trend of tourism in Ireland.
