Press Up Group’s latest venture, The Mayson, is set to open in Dublin’s Docklands area this coming December.
As well as a 94 bedroom hotel, The Mayson also houses a gym, The Bottle Boy Pub, The Green Dolphin Barber, The Mayson Bar, Dime Coffee, Ryleigh’s Rooftop Restaurant and The Timberyard event space.
The Mayson consists of two protected structures along North Wall Quay that have been merged together. 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.”
No.81, the original pub building designed as a townhouse and public house in 1860, now houses the Bottle Boy Pub, The Green Dolphin Barber, and seven townhouse style suites and bedrooms above.
No.82 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. A nine-story steel framed building was inserted within the original red brick walls.
No.82 is now home to 87 bedrooms and suites including a penthouse. A gym with a pool, sauna, and steam room, as well as Dime Coffee in the lobby, The Mayson Bar, a roofed courtyard, rooftop restaurant, and event space, round out the building.
Room rates start from €140 for small doubles, up to €1000 for the penthouse.
