A cool oasis of calm in the heart of Dublin’s city center is The Morgan Hotel, a stylish retreat in the trendy Temple Bar district of Dublin, Ireland. The four-star hotel recently had an extensive $15 million facelift including a full interior redesign and the addition of a 5th floor, totallying 168 stylish and contemporary designed guest rooms.
Inspired by the vibrant Art Deco period, the hotel’s unique design creates a stylish urban retreat with bright decor and refreshing vibes in the bustling city center. Think faux-antique notes combined with lots of large windows, hard surfaces and natural light. The newly refurbished guest rooms are spacious, airy and furnished restfully in shades of white and cream.
Dining options include a Lobby Lounge serving coffee and pastries, and 10 Fleet Street Restaurant, a supper club focusing on seafood and steak dishes. Using fresh produce sourced from local suppliers, this modern and urban chic restaurant offers a selection of carefully crafted contemporary Irish-inspired cuisine. Also served are a selection of classic and sophisticated cocktails, alongside the best of Irish hand-crafted beers and ales.
Close to all of Dublin’s must-see visitor attractions, the hotel is a popular city center destination for tourists due to its central location. Temple Bar’s plethora of bars, cafés, restaurants and cultural centers are within a couple of minutes’ walk. Additionally, the Grafton Street and Henry Street shopping zones are nearby, as is Trinity College, The Guinness Storehouse and The Old Jameson Distillery.
