New in Dublin: Dean Hotel

I’m travelling to the UK later this year and in true ‘me’ fashion, I’m planning early. A stop in Dublin has lead me to this gem, the new Dean Hotel.

The architecture is a mix of Georgian and modern and it has great character and soul. The art collection impressively consists only of up and coming Irish artists and the rooms are equipped with mini Smeg fridges. Think Marshall amps, old school sweets and keys in quaint brown envelopes.

Moody blue walls make the guest rooms look calming. This year, blue is not limited to nautical; its sophisticated when combined with rust tones.

Industrial accents add contemporary edge with exposed brick and extensive use of timber, especially in Sophie’s Bar.

Developed by Irish hospitality firm Press Up Entertainment Group, this newcomer has added serious competition on the boutique hotel scene and I can see why.

I was sold at old school sweets.
