TikTok sensations Cairde put best foot forward for new Dublin hotel The Samuel

 Wed 4th May 2022

Last week marked the official opening of The Samuel hotel in Dublin, a four-star offering which is situated within one of the city’s stylish new quarters at Spencer Place. Dancing into the Docklands, Irish TikTok sensations Cairde, who recently performed for US President Joe Biden, kick-started the celebrations by entertaining guests with special performances throughout the day.

Located just a five-minute walk from Dublin’s iconic Samuel Beckett Bridge across the River Liffey, The Samuel pays homage to the city’s Nobel Laureate with subtle references to his works throughout the sophisticated hotel.

The stunning new addition to the city’s Docklands boasts striking interiors throughout, offering modern luxury to guests staying in one of the 204 bedrooms, with executive rooms boasting great views across Dublin.

Delivering an elegant environment and delightful dining, the hotel is also home to the The Samuel Bar and Grill, a chic bar and Grand Café style restaurant.

With an emphasis on contemporary dining, the eatery will be led by experienced Head Chef, Daniel Byrne, who has carefully curated a menu with global influence using locally sourced Irish produce in season.

The Samuel General Manager Anne-Marie Traynor commented:

“We are truly thrilled to be opening the doors of The Samuel to visitors here in Dublin’s bustling city centre. We feel it is the ultimate destination for an activity-packed city break, a romantic getaway or a business trip to the city.

“In Dublin we are proud of our people, culture and history. We feel the connection between people and place is really reflected throughout The Samuel, whether that be the link to our literary legend Samuel Beckett in our name or through the eye-catching art by local creatives visible throughout The Samuel Bar and Grill.

“Dublin truly is a city like no other, and we are extremely excited to see what the future has instore for us here at The Samuel as we begin to welcome guests, both local and from afar. We hope everyone feels that 4-star luxury experience as soon as they walk into our beautiful reception, as well as the genuine warmth you will get from our fantastic team.”

Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, said:

“As we restart overseas tourism to Ireland this year, the opening of The Samuel is very good news and a vote of confidence in Irish tourism. We already work closely with the Dalata Hotel Group and we look forward to co-operating with them to promote their newest hotel overseas. Congratulations and every good wish to the team at The Samuel.”
