CitizenM has acquired its first property in Dublin
CitizenM has announced the finalisation of the acquisition of a property in central Dublin.
The hotel developer will now build the citizenM Dublin St Patrick’s hotel on this site, with plans to open the new hotel in 2024.
For citizenM, the construction and operation of citizenM Dublin St Patrick’s hotel signifies multifaceted investment in the local community. On opening, the property will cater for both guests and locals with space to work, relax and socialise.
Fitting in with the citizenM philosophy, this new property will place a focus on local art and culture. Each citizenM hotel collaborates with a local artist and to date the brand has commissioned more than 120 pieces of art.
This local connection will be enhanced with the search for a local Culture Scout, the launch for which was announced along with the news of this property acquisition.
Klaas Van Lookeren Campagne, CEO of citizenM, said: “Dublin has been high on our list of target cities for some time, and we are thrilled to have secured this location as our first entry into the Irish market.”
“While the past year has been a challenge for the whole industry, we are confident and continue with our ambitious growth strategy both in Europe and the US, which includes actively seeking additional locations in Dublin.”
“We believe our affordable luxury concept is a great fit for the city, appealing to both visitors and locals alike, and look forward to connecting with this vibrant community.”
A heritage landmark
On opening, the hotel will host guests and locals in its bar and restaurant as well as through events and programming showing local talent.
The experience will be shaped by the new Culture Scout programme benefitting guests with the unique insights only a local can give.
The development will also pay tribute to the history of the Brutalist landmark facade designed by renowned Irish architect Sam Stephenson that this hotel is set behind with the space between the facade and hotel serving as a permanent art space for the public as well as guests to enjoy.
Sensitively constructed, the brand’s signature prefabricated modular construction will be paired with use of brickwork referencing the architecture of Dublin 8 in the Liberties and nearby Iveagh Trust tenements. On completion this will be Ireland’s first fully modular-built commercial building.
The 245-room citizenM Dublin St Patrick’s hotel will be delivered by BCP Capital with construction beginning in August 2022.
