Hard Rock Hotel Dublin opening hits the right note

DUBLIN — There’ll be a chorus of approval from music-loving guests about Hard Rock International’s latest addition to its European portfolio, Hard Rock Hotel Dublin in the Temple Bar.

Located on Exchange Street Upper near the Temple Bar district, the new hotel celebrates Dublin’s rich cultural and musical history.

The 120-room hotel combines the historic Exchange Building, a listed property built at the turn of the 20th century, with the more recent Fashion House building, linking them with a glass bridge.

The classic red-brick exterior has been maintained, with interiors adorned with Hard Rock memorabilia curated to include possessions and instruments owned by some of Ireland’s most loved musicians, including Phil Lynott, Van Morrison, Hozier, and U2. Pieces from artists that have played truly memorable gigs in Ireland will also feature.

The hotel features Hard Rock brand-signature amenities, such as The Sound of Your Stay program, where guests can opt for an in-room Crosley vinyl player or a Fender guitar with amp and headphones for impromptu jam sessions. In addition, curated playlists enable guests to stream or download their favorite background music. Rock Om is an in-room yoga program pairing yoga with contemporary music.

The hotel is near many local attractions, heritage sites, eateries, and bars. The Guinness Storehouse, the Jameson Distillery, Dublin Castle and the Temple Bar district are all within walking distance. The Olympia Theatre, the Gallery of Photography, and the Irish Film Institute are also nearby.

Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American is due to open in April 2020, located in a famous Art Nouveau building on the Leidseplein Square.

Hard Rock Hotel Budapest is scheduled to open in May 2020 near ‘Budapest’s Broadway’ and other of the city’s famed cultural attractions.

Hard Rock Hotel Madrid will follow, situated opposite the historic Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in the Atocha district.
