Ruby Molly Launches in Dublin

Situated in the heart of the vibrant city of Dublin, Ruby has proudly unveiled its latest addition, the Lean Luxury Hotel Ruby Molly.

This marks an exciting milestone as it becomes the hotel group’s inaugural location in Ireland, offering 272 meticulously designed rooms and a generous 500sq ft space dedicated to the hotel’s inviting bar and café.

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 River Liffey, a stone’s throw away from the bustling Temple Bar district, the hotel is spread across a total area of 7,372sq ft.

Ruby Molly embodies the charm of the 19th century, influenced by its location in a historic neighbourhood 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 1846. 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.
