Dublin, Ireland – 4 November, 2019: Moxy Hotels, Marriott International’s experiential hotel brand, has burst onto the scene in Ireland with the opening of its first property here: Moxy Dublin City, owned by Sackville Hotel Properties Ltd and operated by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, with support from Ulster Bank. 

Situated just off O’Connell Street in the heart of the city, hotel guests have access to the plethora of bars, clubs and pubs that make up Dublin’s thriving live music scene. Bringing that energetic atmosphere into the hotel, the new Moxy caters to fun-seekers, thrill-hunters and culture buffs. The hotel has been designed in Moxy’s trademark boutique style and the quirky bedrooms are complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, luxurious rain showers, furiously fast Wi-Fi and 49” smart TVs. Guests can chill in the lobby with a game of foosball, pull up a seat at the 24/7 bar, or party with the dedicated Moxy Crew.

Moxy Hotels are designed to reimagine the hotel scene; on arrival guests are welcomed into a playful stay with check-in at the bar, the heart of the hotel, and a complimentary cocktail. Other fun and spirited extras include grown-up bedtime stories and ‘hook-ups’ – unexpected upgrades such as vinyl record parties and pillow forts. 

Brid Cloonan, General Manager of Moxy Dublin City, said: “Moxy Dublin City gives guests a hotel experience with a difference, you can do everything on your own terms, in a space that’s high energy and full of great surprises. Whether you want to work or play, our communal Living Room’s fun and inclusive vibe will keep you energized all day, while our comfortable bedrooms are the perfect escape from the buzz of the city centre.”

John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands Europe, Marriott International said:

“Charismatic, stylish and bold – this is what our guests are, so we created a hotel with personality to match. Dublin is known for its contagious energy and friendly population, so it is the perfect location for the first Moxy in Ireland and we have no doubt that Moxy guests will fall in love with this lively city and keep coming back for more.”

Welcoming the opening of the Moxy Hotel, Dublin, Eddie Cullen, Managing Director, Commercial Banking Division, Ulster Bank said:

“Ulster Bank is a strong supporter of the hotel and hospitality sector in Ireland and Marriott International is a significant part of that. We’re delighted to have supported the construction and launch of Moxy Dublin City and are proud to have been associated with a project that has created new jobs, has brought significant investment to a landmark location and will assist in growing visitor numbers to the city.”


Moxy’s fun, inclusive and youthful spirit is reflected in the combination of bold design and affordable 

style where communal engagement is at the centre of the experience.


The hotel’s Living Room is where it all happens, changing its vibe throughout the day to give guests fun ways to work and play hard. Ambient lighting and accents of colour throughout complement design features such as graffiti art walls, modern furniture and bicycle lights. The Living Room also features plenty of power and USB outlets and fast and free Wi-Fi for ultimate connectivity. A high-energy yet cosy space for gatherings, special events or cocktails, the Living Room plays host to eclectic upbeat music that sets just the right mood.


The hotel’s 157 bedrooms feature 49? LCD flat-screen televisions, high quality sound systems, free Wi-Fi and comfortable high-thread count bedding. Every bedroom makes a statement with a fun floor to ceiling art piece. The design is functional, flexible and uncluttered with simple, thoughtful touches.
