The Mayson Dublin

The Mayson

Sitting right in the centre of buzzing Dublin on the banks of the River Liffey, the Mayson is home to 94 bedrooms and suites, Power Gym, The Bottle Boy Pub, The Green Dolphin, The Mayson Bar, DIME Coffee, Ryleigh’s Rooftop Restaurant and The Timberyard event space. The Mayson has so much going on and its excellent location means you’re in the best place to dive into everything Dublin has to offer.

The Mayson has been created for business travellers, explorers and city dwellers. Whether you’re travelling for work, catching your favourite act at the nearby 3Arena or Bord Gàis Energy Theatre, visiting Dublin for the weekend, day tripping or living in the city and looking for your heaven in hospitality, the Mayson team is on hand to make sure you have the best experience each and every time you visit.

The Mayson consists of two protected structures that have been sewn together beautifully.

Dave O’Shea from ODOS said: “This exciting restoration project is a redevelopment of No.81 and No.82 North Wall Quay. Both buildings were in a dilapidated condition and had not been used in over two decades. The concept was to redevelop these strikingly unique buildings by drawing on their existing, inherent characters.

“The ambition for No.81 was to retain a public house on the ground floor, resulting in minimal intervention to the existing structure and restoring the original features. No.82 is one of the few remaining warehouse structures on the north quays and presented a rare opportunity to establish this forgotten building.”

Each building has its own distinctive style. No.81, the original pub building designed as a townhouse and public house in 1860, now houses the cosy Bottle Boy Pub, The Green Dolphin Barber for a fade or a blade and seven glorious townhouse style suites and bedrooms above.

The second building began life as a cattle and timber warehouse in 1870. The original brickwork façade was retained and temporarily held up by supporting it from the outside with shipping containers, filled with concrete blocks. In a feat of engineering, a nine-storey steel framed building was inserted within the original red brick walls, creating a magnificent blend of old and new.

This building is now home to 87 bedrooms and suites including Warehouse Suites, Small Double Rooms, HiFi Rooms, Super Rooms and an amazing penthouse. The new boutique Power Gym featuring exceptional fitness classes and facilities, the best trainers and relaxation pool and spa, DIME coffee in the lobby, The Mayson Bar serving amazing cocktails and all day menu of comfort food, an outdoor original truss roofed courtyard with three storey living wall, Ryleigh’s Rooftop Restaurant and The Timberyard event space.

The Mayson is a design-led hotel, with rooms full of beautiful and carefully considered interiors. An exciting display of artwork adorns the walls, featuring over 300 pieces from emerging Irish talent, including Domino Whisker who created a bespoke neon sign that hangs pride of place above the reception.

The Mayson rooms have been thoughtfully designed; with all the touches you’d expect in a luxury hotel, including rainfall power showers, premium Irish toiletries from the Lake House brand, Netflix enabled Samsung Smart TVs, Marshall Amps for tunes, record players and guitars, Smeg fridges to keep things cool, Dyson Hair dryers, Mayson Munchie Trays and much more.

The Mayson is a key player in the transforming landscape of Dublin. Home to global tech giants, financial leaders, tech innovators, entrepreneurs and creators, Dublin is quickly becoming one of the best cities to explore, live and stay, and The Mayson sits at its very heart.
