Famous Vegas hotel to open new branch in Dublin city centre

A little bit of Sin City a lot closer to home.

When you think of Vegas, you probably think of a few of the landmarks.

The Vegas strip. The Bellagio fountains. The Hard Rock Hotel.

You know it is iconic because it appeared at the end of Con Air, and by appeared, we mean it kind of blew up...

Hard Rock have put up hotels in over 70 countries around the world, with the latest now taking up shop on one of Dublin's busiest streets.

Just around the corner from one of their Hard Rock Cafes, the new hotel is currently being fitted on Lord Edward Street (just a little up from Dame Street), where the Parliment Hotel used to be.

According to Hard Rock themselves:

"The hotel will feature 120 guest bedrooms and suites furnished to an exceptionally high standard using warm fumed woods, fresh stone surfaces, bespoke Ulster carpets and sumptuous patterned and vibrant fabrics. Hard Rock Hotel Dublin will also have an exciting all-day dining restaurant showcasing the freshest Irish ingredients. There will also be a casual bar serving food accompanied by well-crafted cocktails and 24-hour in-room dining."

Commenting on the project, Todd Hricko, SVP & Head of Global Hotel Development for Hard Rock International, said "Ireland has always been a place close to our hearts, and it only seems right to open a Hard Rock Hotel in Dublin, given the city’s musical roots. This is an exciting opportunity to extend our presence in Europe and elevate the one-of-a-kind offering at Hard Rock Hotels to the next level."

The hotel represents just one of the 79 new hotels currently in development in the capital, with 3,000 new hotel rooms are expected in Dublin by the year 2020.
