Ruby opens new hotel in Dublin

Ruby Molly Dublin GH11464 small

Under the direction of founder and CEO Michael Struck, the group introduces its 18th hotel in Europe, Ruby Molly. Centrally located, nestled in Oxmanstown, just north of the Rive Liffey, the hotel boasts 272 rooms across a total area of 7,372 square feet, a stone's throw away from the bustling Temple Bar district. 

A Design that Blends History and Modernity

Ruby Molly embodies the charm of the 19th century, influenced by its location in a historic neighborhood that once housed a bustling fruit and vegetable market. The hotel's design is intricately linked to the history and evolution of the central Oxmanstown. The property, where Ruby Molly now stands, was originally part of the grounds of St. Mary's Abbey, founded in 846. At its peak, the abbey was one of the largest and wealthiest in all of Ireland, playing a significant role in the founding of Dublin. Later, this site transitioned from the grounds of a prosperous abbey to a bustling market quarter. The market served as a meeting place for people from the city and surrounding areas to gather and exchange goods. This atmosphere inspires the hotel's inviting space, welcoming guests from all over the world. The marketplace ambience is also palpable for guests at Ruby Molly. Surfaces, materials, and decorations reflect the contrasts of urban chic meeting farmer markets’ rusticity: sumptuous fabrics, marble, and glass juxtaposed with worn leather, tile, and black steel. To create a cosy atmosphere, many comfortable seating areas and nooks have been created between cartwheels and baskets. 

Unique Experiences at Ruby Molly

The hotel's public area stands out, offering an enticing array of amenities ranging from healthy breakfasts to artisanal coffee, Mediterranean-inspired snacks, and exquisite cocktails. Adding to the allure, live performances by local up-and-coming bands infuse the space with vibrant energy, while cosy seating areas beckon guests to relax and savor the ambiance. Furthermore, a dedicated library showcases archaeological discoveries from the surrounding area, providing insight into the region's rich heritage. Inspired by the historical market that once thrived in its neighborhood, Ruby Molly seamlessly blends past and present, offering guests a journey through Dublin's vibrant culture. From rustic farm tables to vintage chairs, every detail reflects the area's storied history, creating a truly immersive experience. 

Conveniently located near Dublin's lively Temple Bar district, guests can explore charming pedestrian lanes adorned with quaint pubs, boutiques, galleries, and eateries. Noteworthy attractions like the Guinness Storehouse and picturesque Phoenix Park are just a leisurely stroll away. With easy access from the airport via bus and car, Ruby Molly serves as an ideal hub for immersing oneself in the city's rich tapestry of experiences.
