Cosy King rooms are €179 per night, while Executive rooms will set guests back €215 and suites start from €279 per night.

On arrival to the reception area, guests will be greeted by a wooden tree sculpture alongside a rejuvenated old horsebox transformed into a coffee dock and sandwich bar. It will also serve a selected drinks menu by night.
The hotel boasts self-service check in, but also has a reception area with a front of house team.
The reception has plenty of co-working spaces at sharing tables with charging points and WiFi as well as a photobooth and music zone, with a vinyl collection, record players and headphones.
There’s also a games and library area or if you want to stay active on your city break, there’s a 24-hour gym for residents.
An indoor garden with olive tree and an open fire also features in the O’Donnell O’Neill-designed space.
Hotel chiefs say the food offering “is based around a concise menu offering simple food, cooked well, with a focus on Irish suppliers”.
Light bites like bee pollen salad and crispy whitebait are priced at €10, while fish and chips is €16.50 and Irish chicken supreme is €22.
