After a €13 million refurbishment which lasted ten months, the Conrad Dublin is set to unveil a new-look influenced by Dublin's literary culture and heritage tomorrow (5 October).
The refurbishment consisted of new designs for each of its 192-bedrooms and suites, a complete transformation of its Presidential Suite and a new lobby area influenced by the work of Ninian Niven, the architect of Iveagh Gardens reports TheTaste.ie. The 5-star hotel will be home to a new brasserie-style restaurant called The Coburg as well as a lounge and cocktail bar called Lemuel's which was inspired by the book Gulliver's Travels.
Discussing the new refurbishment, Martin Mangan, general manager at Conrad Dublin said: "There is a significant contrast between the old and the new-look Conrad Dublin and every guest room and suite will have its own story to tell. Inspiration comes from all quarters – sights and sounds, people and places – our vision was to create a storyboard that celebrates Dublin and we hope that it will, in its own way, pass on to our guests."
Mangan added that the changes will "reflect some of Dublin’s fine geographical, historic, and cultural touchpoints".
