Raise a Pint of Guinness at the Westbury Hotel in Dublin
October 19, 2009By: Daniel L. Moses
Westbury Hotel, DublinThe end of September marked 250 years since Sir Arthur Guinness signed the lease to open up a revolutionary beer-making enterprise. The brewery, of course, is still very much in operation, supplying pints of Guinness stout throughout the all of Ireland and exporting the rich brew to much of the world. The city where this all occurred is, of course, Dublin, the Republic of Ireland's bustling capital. Choosing to toast Sir Arthur in person, I traveled to Dublin in early June, taking advantage of the mild climate and long days of the late Irish spring. Before renting a car to drive through the green, rolling hills of the inviting countryside, I stayed at the Westbury Hotel near Trinity College. This magnificent property gave me the opportunity to take advantage of warm Irish hospitality in a location rivaling any other for the best in Dublin. Close to everything, the Westbury Hotel in Dublin also has some of the most comfortable and spacious rooms in the entire British Isles. And with an abundance of fine nightlife just outside the door, including those famous pubs, there were myriad opportunities to raise my own pint of Guinness: "To Arthur!"
