Dublin’s O’Connell Street is rich in Irish history—it was bombarded by the Royal Navy during the Easter Rising of 1916; it served as the backdrop for the Irish Civil War of 1922; and it hosts the city’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Add another historic accomplishment to the street as Ireland’s largest penthouse suite has just been opened there by the newly refurbished Gresham Hotel. Spanning 4,000 square feet, the Eisenhower suite sleeps 10 guests in five bedrooms. The ultra-spacious penthouse has two living rooms, a dining room, kitchen, fully stocked bar and six bathrooms—each featuring a Jacuzzi and rainfall shower. Should guests want to host a private party, the penthouse’s private landscaped terrace can accommodate up to 60 people. The suite is available for US$5,266 per night including breakfast for 10 people.
