Dublin To Get New Nyx Hotel
It has been announced that a new Nyx hotel will be built in the Portobello area on the south side of Dublin City.
The planned 175-room boutique hotel will be constructed on a site overlooking the Grand Canal and is scheduled to be completed in late 2021.
Talking to The Sunday Independent, Jason Carruthers, managing director of Jurys Inn and Fattal Hotels in the UK and Ireland, which operates the Nyx brand in Ireland, said that Portobello will "work very, very well for a boutique lifestyle brand."
Art And Music
Carruthers told The Sunday Independent that "There's a lot of association with the local community with the Nyx brand, particularly around art and music. Typically, the ground floor of a Nyx hotel is a lot more vibrant than a Jurys Inn. So there'll be a very, very busy bar and lounge.
Carruthers added that the hotel's bar will have "loud music, lights, and a lot of emphasis on local DJs and local bands".
