Ballymore’s newest urban quarter in Dublin is set to welcome an ultra-stylish 200-bed boutique hotel, following an agreement between the developer and boutique hotelier Standard Hotels. The Standard, a boutique brand best known for its city locations, designer décor and cultural happenings, already has hotels in the United States, London and the Maldives, and its upcoming hotel in Dublin Arch will mark its debut in Ireland.
The hotel, which is expected to open in 2025, will be part of the Dublin Arch neighbourhood, which is being developed adjacent to Connolly station in Dublin 1. This major regeneration project will combine homes, office space, retail and restaurants, community clubs, artists’ studios and landscaped plazas.
Ballymore chairman and chief executive Sean Mulryan said of the agreement, “Our Dublin Arch development highlights our commitment to Dublin’s North East Inner City. Attracting high-calibre commercial partners to this historic area was a key objective and I am thrilled that Standard Hotels have chosen to locate their first Irish hotel in Dublin Arch.”
Amber Asher, CEO of Standard International, echoed that, saying, “We are excited to partner with Ballymore to develop a new home for Dublin’s creative community and a destination for locals and visitors alike.”
