A Look Inside: Molyneux Hotel – Dublin’s Liberties 2022

Dublin’s Liberties is set to welcome a design-led hotel development with planning being approved for the Molyneux Hotel located behind the Vicar Street Venue.

The 8-storey hotel will feature 261 bedrooms that are designed to merge contemporary design and functionality to optimise space and light. The hotel will offer state-of-the-art amenities including a rustic courtyard-style restaurant, an underground railway bar, a warm industrial-designed café, and a sharp monochrome reception.

The interiors were bespoke-designed by Irish interior designers, NORTH Design. Co-founder, Lauren Martin commented “The brief was to create an environment which was appealing to guests coming to Dublin for both work or a city break, and feature both urban elements to reflect the hotels location, as well as luxury design details that will make the hotel memorable to guests after they depart.”

The developers behind the Molyneux Hotel, Salamisso Developments, are expecting to complete construction in 2022. Once completed, the developers claim that it would create over 200 jobs. A spokesperson for the group commented “This hotel will be in a prime position in the heart of the Liberties tourist zone and aims to revitalise an area which has gone undeveloped over the past few decades.”

CGI consultants, 3D Design Bureau, liaised with NORTH Design to produce a series of 3D marketing solutions to bring the Molyneux Hotel to life. 3D Design Bureau delivered architectural CGIs, interior CGIs, a 3D walkthrough animation, and an off-plans 360 virtual tour.
