10. 5-Star Intercontinental Hotel, Dublin, Family Room: €875

Luxury hotels in Dublin with large family rooms - Intercontinental Hotel.

We had the pleasure of staying in the Intercontinental Hotel recently and loved the experience. The standard family rooms are extremely spacious, I’m told the most spacious of all five-star hotels in Dublin. However if your budget allows, upgrade to one of the executive suites which have a balcony and can easily accommodate a family of five.


You can choose to dine in the Lobby Bar or the elegant Seasons Restaurant, both of which have superb kids menus, that are very well priced. There is a health club with a 14 metre pool which children can also avail of, and if you fancy a stroll before dinner, Sandymount beach and Herbert Park are both close by.
