Jurys Inn, Christchurch

Located in the heart of the medieval centre of Dublin, directly opposite Christchurch Cathedral, this hotel represents the operators first, and flag ship, move in to the budget hotel market. The 188 room hotel re-establishes the streetscape in this historic area. Elevational treatment establishes an appropriate hierarchical relationship to the cathedral, using modern detail treatment with traditional materials – natural limestone, reconstituted granite and clay brick. Construction work uncovered the remains of a previously unlocated section of the medieval city walls and a stone tower. These archaeological features have been preserved and enclosed in an underground room.
