Whether you’re visiting Ireland, England, Holland, Germany or Belgium, there is a group of hotels that you must stay in – we’re talking about Gresham Hotels, an Irish based group that started with its first establishment in Dublin’s famous O’Connell Street. In 1817, Thomas Gresham bought buildings number 21 and 22 on Sackville Street and opened the first Gresham Hotel. This famous merchant and politician originally hailed from England, and his comfortable establishment became a Dublin landmark. Today, there are six Gresham hotels in all, dotted around the UK and Europe – in London, Cork, Dublin, Amsterdam, Brussels and Hamburg. Of course, the Dublin establishment is still the most famous, although currently it’s not in the least bit olde worlde. It’s been refurbished as offers a selection of bars and restaurants as well as a stunning location close to all major city attractions. A highlight of a visit here is afternoon tea, although the Writer’s Bar is equally popular for its home-made soup at mealtimes and selection of exotic cocktails. Each of the other hotels has its own special charm. For instance, the four-star Gresham Carat Hotel in Hamburg is a modern hotel with every facility for a great stay, including Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs in the bedrooms, and a sauna and solarium. Gresham Belson Hotel in Brussels offers similar facilities and a location near NATO headquarters. Closer to home, the Gresham Metropole Hotel in Cork has an idyllic location overlooking the River Lee, and it’s close to the city’s shops, theatres and art galleries. The hotel also boasts a leisure centre with pool, hot tub, sauna and fully equipped gym as well as two new restaurants.
