Belfast and Dublin hotels

Belfast :
The Merchant - great location, service, atmosphere. My favorite in the city.
Culloden Estate and Spa (Virtuoso*****) - outside the city
Fitzwilliam (3 star) - good location, inexpensive

Dublin :
The Merrion (Virtuoso*****) - My favorite! The best!!!
Fitzwilliam - balconies over St Stephens Green, a block from Grafton
The Dylan - very chic, love the terrace bar, good restaurant, service and staff are top notch
The Cliff Town House (3 star, delightful), great location
Four Seasons - next to RDS. Extraordinary hotel if the location suits you - Be sure to book so you get Preferred Partner benefits. (FSPP*****)

Re Belfast, if you want a convenient location and a good price you could try the Days Hotel on Hope Street. It's just a few minutes walk from the Great Victoria St bus and rail station where the airport buses drop you.

To Dublin I'll add:

The Westin - SPG, near Trinity College
The Shelbourne Renaissance - Marriott, on St. Stephen's Green
Conrad - HHonors, kinda average and overpriced

For a well-priced 4*property, large rooms, new build - 15 mins form city centre, in a pleasant enough part of the city, beside Kilmainham Gaol, I'm also happy to recommend the Hilton Kilmainham. I use it for mattress runs occasionally.

For 3* properties look at Jurys Inns.

Loved the Westin in Dublin
Great location along with a unique hotel (old bank building)
