Herbert Park – the ideal place to stay for this year’s Irish Open

Thanks to our partnership with MainEventTravel.com, we have a load of hotel deals for this year’s Irish Open. A particular gem is the Herbert Park, a gorgeous hotel that lies just a stone’s throw from this year’s Royal Dublin Society venue.

MainEventTravel’s special offers at the Herbert Park include a €2,309 deal for five nights and that includes your €1,150 Main Event buy-in and breakfast buffet! This is just one of a dozen exclusive accommodation + Main Event buy-in packages available at the Herbert Park – an unmissable opportunity to compete at your favourite event while staying in one of Dublin’s top hotels!

Dublin’s exclusive Ballsbridge district, the Herbert Park is close to both the airport and the city centre. With nearly 200 rooms, it’s big too and already looks set to be chock-full of poker players during the festival.

Obviously 24-hour room service is a must – who knows what time you’ll need a snack? But there are lots of other stand-out features too that make the Herbert Park ideal for your Irish Open stay. The blackout curtains are fab, ensuring you can get some decent shut-eye whatever time you hit the sack. And there’s also a Nespresso coffee-maker in every room if you need a bit of oomph to get you back into the tournament room!

For players who have remembered that it pays to keep up your fitness levels, the hotel has a well-equipped gym and workout room that’s open 24/7. You could also go for a jog around the gorgeous 42-acre Herbert Park; a full circuit of the park’s perimeter is almost exactly one mile – no need to even bring your tracker.

There’s an abundance of amenities at the Herbert Park that seem tailor-made for poker players. The rooms are roomy and spacious and equipped with top-notch, high speed wi-fi – perfect for online grinders and gamers (100 mb upload and download via the dedicated fibre connection.)

Food-wise, there are several good options at the Herbert Park hotel. The Pavilion Restaurant offers international and uniquely Irish gourmet cuisine in a beautiful setting and is open daily from 5:30pm to 9:15pm. If you miss that, the Terrace Lounge, located in the hotel’s stunning lobby, serves light bites and snacks until 9:45 pm. The bar is open pretty much all night for guests, so there’s nothing to stop you enjoying the craic until the early hours if you want to.

If you fancy eating out, you have a huge choice of some 30 restaurants that all lie within two minutes’ walk of the hotel. That includes Dublin favourites like The Bridge 1859, The Lobster Pot, Al Boschetto, Roly’s Bistro, the Baan Thai Ballsbridge and the Girl and the Goose Restaurant.

All in all, the Herbert Park looks like being THE place to stay during the Irish Open. Hang out with your mates, have a great time – check out the Herbert Park offers on MainEventTravel.com or click here for more info.
