THE MARKER HOTEL

A dramatic design which draws its inspiration from the Irish landscape and in particular the Irish coastline.

The architectural concept for the hotel building envisaged a single coastal form eroded over time. This erosion formed a series of public spaces on the ground floor of the hotel. This concept encompassed the hotel bedrooms located overhead, which were envisaged as a honeycomb of openings formed through the form giving the bedrooms their unique shape and design.

To achieve the openness of the entire ground floor Arup, the structural engineers, designed the most complex cantilevered bridge structure ever built in Ireland,

which is 67 metres in length and has no intermediate supports.

ROOFTOP EXTENSION

After the phenomenal success of the roof bar and terrace area, in early 2017 MDO made a planning application to replace the roof bar with a new 7th floor of 30 additional bedrooms to the existing 179 rooms, and to move the rooftop bar to a newly created entertainment area at roof level.

The new larger entertainment area at roof level, with a capacity for 200 people, comprises a glazed pavilion with bar and food facilities and a deck area with a mix of open and covered seating areas. The design provides for a larger bar and restaurant space as well as an additional function space.
