Newly Opened Clayton Hotel Charlemont Host Launch Event
Journalists and influencers were given a glimpse of the recently opened Clayton Hotel Charlemont, a four-star establishment located on Dublin’s south-side on the banks of the Grand Canal.
The venue has been open since November of last year. Speaking about the reason for the press gathering yesterday night (June 13), meeting and sales executive for the new Clayton Ciara Smith told Travel Ireland: “We wanted an opportunity to really showcase the hotel and what we can offer, like our accessibility and our friendly staff who are advocates for Irish hospitality.”
Attendees were treated to a taste of Charlemont, including super solero cocktails, alongside a host of spins on the Jameson & ginger and gin & tonic formulas. These beverages were accompanied by delicious finger food prepared by the hotel’s head chef Anil Roy and the sounds of violin group Retrospect putting a new spin on some old classics.
Speaking to Travel Ireland, general manager Lynn Cawley gave a rundown of some of the new hotel’s features: “The space is unique. It is comprised of two Georgian buildings that have been restored to marry historic Dublin with more modern architecture. Within that is this stunning central atrium space which lends itself to the kind of event were having tonight. In addition, we also have a bar and restaurant with unique canal side views. The whole hotel is spectacular.”
If potential visitors are still not swayed, Cawley had some other reasons to convince you to book a stay at the Clayton in Charlemont. “Were located in an absolutely beautiful part of the city. Meanwhile, with the Luas right on our doorsteps, we’re easily connected to both business parks like Sandyford but also the leisure spots of Stephen’s Green – just a stone’s throw away. There’s also Rathmines and Ranelagh so close by. Since we’ve opened, visitors have really enjoyed our central location for business and for pleasure.”
Clayton Hotel Charlemont is owned by the Dalata Hotel Group, who run similar properties with the Clayton brand across Ireland. Their latest opening is located at Charlemont St, Saint Kevin’s, Dublin 2. For more information, visit the hotel’s site here.
