Dublin’s Newest Hotel, Clayton Hotel Charlemont, Set To Open On The Banks Of The Grand Canal
Dublin’s newest hotel, Clayton Hotel Charlemont, is set to open its doors on the banks of Dublin’s Grand Canal this November. 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.
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. Homage is paid to the history and heritage of Charlemont Street throughout the hotel. From 1919 to 1984, Number 37 Charlemont Street was home to St Ultan’s infant’s hospital and the hospital’s founders, Kathleen Lynn and Madeleine ffrench-Mullen are remembered through the naming of two executive boardrooms, Lynn Mullen and Saint Ultan’s, located in Number 37. Lynn Cawley, General Manager at Clayton Hotel Charlemont 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 ground floor of the 4* hotel is home to two exciting dining options, Gaudens Restaurant and Lockside Bar/Social, both of which are set to be fantastic additions to Dublin’s culinary scene. 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. All dining options at the Clayton Hotel Charlemont are expertly prepared by head chef Anil Roy and his talented team. The lobby will serve Red Bean Roastery Coffee, a signature blend of coffee prepared by expert baristas, exclusive to hotels within the Dalata Group. Fans of Red Bean Roastery Coffee will be excited to learn that a stand-alone Red Bean Roastery Coffee Shop is set to open next door to the Clayton Hotel Charlemont in early 2019. 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.
