Next Generation Hospitality in one of Dublin’s oldest and most vibrant neighbourhoods in Dublin 8 opened its doors in March 2024 in the heart of Dublin 8; primarily positioned for guests to explore a vibrant & unique neighbourhood brimming with the best that Dublin City has to offer.

Historic landmarks, local artisan food producers, fashion designers and artists make it one of the most exciting and up-and-coming areas of the city as well as home to many of Dublin’s old and new distilleries and breweries.

The Chancery is an independent, Irish owned 150-bedroom luxury hotel which is an exciting addition in the upper end 4-star sector. The vibrant neighbourhood and the links to the community is reflected in many aspects of the building and business. This will include careful curated art in the public areas, the seasonally designed dishes served in the Restaurant   All sourced from local artists and businesses or inspired by the history of the area.

The whole experience has been considered for guests, from comfort to convenience. In addition to this, integrating the latest in sustainable technologies throughout the very fabric of building and in the day-to-day operations means sustainability is part of the hotel culture. The hotel will operate on a completely fossil fuel free basis and has been certified with LEED Gold status and is Green Tourism Certified. The gold standard in rating systems for green buildings across the world.

As well as looking after the planet the hotel wants its guests to look after their own wellbeing, providing a wellness hub that offers guests a serene space to relax with hammam steam room, sauna, and state of the art gym.

The Chancery is ideally located just metres from The Dublin Royal Convention Centre and The Printworks at Dublin Castle. It offers its own dedicated boardroom which seats twelve delegates and is equipped with an 85-inch LED screen and multimedia functionality as well as several private acoustic meeting pods for 2 - 4 people. It will be an integral part of the Dublin 8 area as a new international meeting and digital hub in Dublin City.

Thoughtful, contemporary design throughout the hotel offers guests a sense of calm through the journey of their stay. Warm communal spaces, furnished with natural materials and each bedroom designed with function and comfort in mind, allows guests their own little bit of sanctuary in the city.

Bespoke elements enhancing the guest experience have been considered at every touch point of the hotel. Every bedroom has been designed and appointed in a calm pared-back style to reflect this and with our selection of skyline rooms and suites, guests can savour the cityscape and take in the cultural atmosphere while overlooking Dublin Castle.

 “We have kept three key values at the forefront of our minds at every step of the process to create this new hotel – community, sustainability and the ultimate in exceeding the expectations of our guests. These values are inherent in all aspects of the hotel, from the art on the walls telling the story of Dublin to the sensor operated lighting throughout the hotel to conserve energy to the glass fronted suites on the top floor overlooking the iconic Dublin skyline.”
