The Chicago-based Hyatt Hotel Corporation has more than 800 properties in more than 55 countries across six continents. Its subsidiaries own 14 premier brands and enjoy a Loyalty Membership of over 18 Million. The opening of the Hyatt Centric Hotel in Dublin’s Liberties, not only unveils a new destination for Hyatt’s Loyalty Members Worldwide, it opens a door for 18 Million new visitors to Dublin’s Liberties.
The Hyatt Centric Brand targets the “Savvy Explorer” or the “curious-minded travellers who want to be in the middle of the action” and feel like they are “tapped into the best of the destination.” According to Jason Ballard, Vice President for Hyatt EAME, “Hyatt Centric, the Liberties, captures the essence of the brand like no other. The location and vibe of the Liberties is just perfect. The entire Hyatt team are truly excited to have finally arrived in Dublin.”
The 900-Year-Old Story
The Liberties in Dublin is one of those special places with a rich depth of history and following an extensive six-month excavation, Hyatt Centric Hotel was left with a literal treasure trove of precious historical finds and artefacts telling the story from the Viking residents of the 11th and 12th century, through to inhabitants of late Medieval times right up to the 20th century.
With the mantra “Arrive a Stranger, Leave a Local”, the hotel now offers an interactive museum-quality, historical timeline providing immediate access to digitised video content around the 900 year old story. Other unique features include a one-of-a-kind whiskey wall and masterclass developed in partnership with three local Liberties distilleries.
The hotel offers cutting edge technologies in 234 modern rooms and suites, most of which boast views of the city and nearby St Patrick’s Cathedral, with delicious local food and expertly mixed drinks in The Liberties Gate Bar & Restaurant, state-of-the-art conferencing facilities, a relaxed reading lounge and its very own private urban oasis - The Poddle Garden. Dublin’s top attractions are also right within walking distance of the hotel, including Grafton Street, shops, restaurants, nightlife and theatres, the Guinness Storehouse, St Patrick’s Cathedral and Dublin Castle - all well worth a visit.
