The Conrad Dublin hotel is to undergo an €8m refurbishment from this week.

The project will see the five star hotel renovated throughout, and is expected to be competed by this spring.

The plan includes what the hotel calls a "stylish new design" for all guest rooms and suites, including a full makeover of the presidential suite, lobby area and exterior facade, in addition to "new dining concepts" for the restaurant, ground floor lounge and bar.

The hotel will also introduce a brasserie-style food offering at from February. The new, ground-floor lounge and bar will open in March, alongside the unveiling of the lobby and refurbished guest rooms and suites.

"After working extensively with our designers, we created two prototype guest rooms with beautiful fabrics, a subtle colour palette, natural oak flooring and finishes such as Herringbone wool carpets and wood panelling on the walls," said Martin Mangan, general manager, Conrad Dublin. "The renovations will transform Conrad Dublin, setting a new tone that is contemporary but that also reflects Ireland's heritage.

The hotel said the lobby redesign has been "inspired by the work and vision of Ninian Niven, the architect of Iveagh Gardens".
