The Westbury Hotel in Dublin has unveiled a €2 million investment, including the redesign of The Grafton Suite.
The hotel, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, is celebrating its 30-year anniversary with a €2 million makeover, including the launch of a new bar and brasserie, Balfes, as well as a re-design of The Grafton Suite event space.
With Parisian and New York influences, Balfes is an all-day dining brasserie and bar located on Balfe Street. It features a 20-seater outdoor terrace, a zinc-covered bar and charcoal grill.
The 110-seat restaurant is open daily, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with all ingredients sourced from local producers by executive chef, Cathal Dunne.
The 220-person event space at the Grafton Suite has just reopened after an €800,000 enhancement. The suite’s technological capabilities have been upgraded with The Westbury Hotel now the first in Ireland to feature a 3m x 2m video wall for high definition videos and presentations, with audio technology provided by Bose.
Vincent O’Gorman, general manager of The Westbury Hotel said: “The Westbury is widely known as a popular social hub. These latest enhancements further cement this reputation and we’re thrilled to open Balfes, which is already proving to be one of the city’s liveliest eateries.”
