Hotel 7 in Gardiner Row celebrated its official opening last month. Opening its doors in June 2018, the stylish boutique hotel, managed by Dalata Hotel Group alongside the Cassidy Group took 2 years to complete.
The hotel was officially opened by Pat McCann, CEO of Dalata Hotel Group and star number 7 Dublin Gaelic football player Jack McCaffrey.
The decision to convert the building into the first boutique hotel in the Dublin 1 area came in 2016, and saw the Cassidy Group bring investment, innovation, employment and new life into the area.
Steeped in history, the building that now houses Hotel 7 was built circa 1770 as a private house. It later became home of the accounting firm Bastow Charleton in the 1950’s before it was destroyed in a fire in 1978.
The hotel has 51 contemporary bedrooms, a cocktail bar and fully equipped restaurant. The hotel interiors are complimented by the works of local artists such Louis le Brocquy, Peter Collis, Georges Braque, Graham Knuttel, Felim Egan, Charles Tyrell and Peter Monaghan.
Speaking this week, Cassidys Hotel CEO, Donnie Cassidy said, "We are delighted to officially launch Hotel7, the first boutique hotel in Dublin 1. The hotel is situated in a vibrant part of Dublin City and we are thrilled to bring this investment into the area as it continues to expand. A building steeped with history, the hotel is an excellent addition to our portfolio and we will continue to offer tourists affordable and modern accommodation."
