Located in Dublin’s city centre on Lord Edward Street, Hard Rock Hotel Dublin will comprise two structures; an existing listed property, built at the turn of the 20th century (originally known as the Exchange Buildings and currently the site of the Parliament Hotel) and the adjacent Fashion House Building.

The Fashion House will be entirely transformed into the new hotel entrance and reception, with a new glass link bridge connecting to the refurbished Parliament building. The original 1912 red-brick façade of the Parliament building will be restored and its interiors decorated with iconic music memorabilia.

In homage to the city’s musical past, signature offerings will include The Sound of Your Stay music programme, allowing guests to set the mood with complimentary vinyl players and records or rock out on a Fender guitar during an in-room jam session, complete with an amp and headphones.

The newly launched wellness programme called 'Rock Om' is an in-room yoga experience which fuses the ancient exercise with the beat of music.

Renowned for its famous pubs and restaurants, Hard Rock Hotel Dublin will be a stone's throw from Temple Bar, Trinity College, Grafton Street, St. Stephen’s Green and the world-famous Guinness Storehouse.

The area is also home to many excellent Irish cultural centres and institutions including the Gallery of Photography, the Olympia Theatre, the National Library Photographic Archive, Smock Alley Theatre and the Irish Film Institute.
