We officially celebrated the opening of our latest hotel in Ireland in Dublin City Centre in May. Dublin City Centre Travelodge PLUS is not only the largest branded budget hotel in Ireland it is the second largest hotel in Dublin.
With this opening we now operate 11 hotels in Ireland from Cork to Belfast under a franchise agreement with Tifco Hotel Group.
The hotel features 393 rooms including SuperRooms and an onsite restaurant called Mossco and an outdoor garden terrace. This hotel is our fifth Travelodge in Dublin. At the hotel opening a dramatic mural was unveiled, painted by Irish artist Shane Sutton which towers over the hotel’s heated terrace. The mural depicts a 19th-century diver paying homage to the hotel’s location in the Dublin docklands.
Travelodge Plus Dublin City Centre is located within the financial district on the corner of Moss Street and Townsend Street in Dublin 2. It is just a short distance from the Convention Centre, IFSC, Silicon Docks, Dublin Port , 3 Arena and Bord Gais Energy Theatre – as well as the shopping and entertainment areas.
Designed by renowned architectural practice MCA Architects, Travelodge Plus Dublin City Centre is an attractive contemporary building with glazed facades and a natural stone and brick finish, using a variety of elevational styles to enhance and integrate the local streetscape.
The 218 enhanced ‘budget chic’ Travelodge PLUS rooms offer a premium ‘Tranquillity Zen’ colour scheme with tones of warm taupe, serenity beige and light white and feature signature luxurious king-size Dreamer beds and blackout curtains to create a relaxing environment.
