The Mayson opens for business in Dublin

The 94-room Mayson hotel opened for business in the heart of Dublin this week.

Located at 81/82 North Wall Quay, the independent Irish-owned hotel incorporates Ryleigh’s rooftop restaurant, The Timberyard event space, DIME Coffee bar, and the Bottle Boy Pub.

The design-led hotel features a range of guestrooms – from small doubles to Warehouse suites and a penthouse – and more than 250 original artworks by Irish artists.

All guestrooms feature rainfall showers, Dyson hairdryers, smart TVs and Smeg fridges – as well as record players, guitars and amps.

Targeting ‘business travellers, explorers and city dwellers’, rates start from €140 per night for a small double room and rise to €1,000 per night for the Liffey Penthouse.

“This exciting restoration project is a redevelopment of No.81 and No.82 North Wall Quay. Both buildings were in a dilapidated condition and had not been used in over two decades,” explains architect Dave O’Shea from ODOS.

“The concept was to redevelop these strikingly unique buildings by drawing on their existing, inherent characters.

“The ambition for No.81 was to retain a public house on the ground floor, resulting in minimal intervention to the existing structure and restoring the original features.

“No.82 is one of the few remaining warehouse structures on the north quays and presented a rare opportunity to establish this forgotten building.”
