It was announced today that Dublin’s newest hotel, Clayton Hotel Charlemont, is set to open its doors on the banks of Dublin’s Grand Canal this November.
Housed within the Clayton Hotel Charlemont are 189 stylishly designed bedrooms, a fitness suite, six fully equipped meeting rooms, two dining outlets, and a carpark with space for 20 cars. The hotel also features scenic views of the iconic Grand Canal throughout.
The new hotel was built though the combination of 18th-Century Georgian buildings, 35, 36 and 37 Charlemont Street, with the newly designed 4-storey hotel building. The hotel has been carefully designed to marry modern architecture with historic Dublin. The unique building's design elements have been carefully integrated into the classical features of the Georgian buildings with the transition from old to new showcased through the addition of a stunning glass atrium set on Dublin’s iconic Grand Canal.
The ground floor of the 4 hotel is home to two new dining options, Gaudens Restaurant and Lockside Bar/Social.
Gaudens Restaurant, named after the famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, born in Number 35 Charlemont Street, offers guests and visitors a stylish restaurant option with spectacular views of the iconic Grand Canal. The menu and design at Gaudens Restaurant include nods to Saint-Gaudens throughout.
At Lockside Bar/Social, Dubliners and visitors to the capital can be truly sociable in a comfortable setting, while overlooking the Grand Canal.
Speaking this week, General Manager at Clayton Hotel Charlemont, Lynn Cawley said, "We are excited to finally welcome guests and visitors to this brand new hotel located right where the city meets the canal. We recognised the importance of maintaining the luxury hotel experience of which guests at Clayton Hotels will be familiar, but also saw the opportunity in Clayton Hotel Charlemont to pleasantly surprise our guests with the character and heritage of the hotel’s Georgian buildings and the history contained within them."
The brand new 4 luxury hotel, which is owned and operated by Dalata Hotel Group, took approximately 24 months and a €40 million investment to complete. The opening of Clayton Hotel Charlemont hotel has created 100 jobs with an investment of €40 million in the local area.
