Community-focussed art hotel The Devlin Dublin—situated in the urban village of Ranelagh, with its pubs, restaurants, independent shops, and easy access to the city centre—boasts 40 design-led guest rooms, a rooftop restaurant with epic views of the hotel’s surrounding area, cocktail bar, coffee hatch capable of fixing all caffeine needs, and a soon-to-come 42-seat movie theatre that will screen all from Hollywood blockbusters to cult classics and arthouse favourites.
Sibling to Dublin design hotel, The Dean, Ranelagh’s The Devlin has all angles covered. Staying for a cosy weekend? In-room Netflix, a Nespresso machine, and ‘Munchie Box’ jam-packed with the best and most iconic Irish snacks have you covered. Dinner for two at Layla’s with a side of sweeping views of the neighbourhood followed by drinks at Americana Bar is the one for the lovebirds, and for those having a lazy morning nursing the head after one too many on the town, the ever-so-comfortable and inviting beds—cocooned within three-sided upholstered panels in a rich grey fabric offset against the Inchyra Blue painted walls—will sort you out in no time at all.
Set within a handsome four-storey over basement building, pairing design sensibilities with functionality is key at The Devlin, something interior designers O’Donnell O’Neill Design and architects Lawrence and Long worked with when creating the small but perfectly formed latest spot from the ever-expanding Press Up Entertainment Group.
