U2 Hotel Dublin design : Foster + Partners

In 1992, Bono and U2 lead guitarist The Edge bought and later refurbished the two-star 70-room hotel, and converted it into a five-star 49-room hotel.

After an 18-month renovation costing US$8 million, enabled in part, due to a tax-exemption scheme which aimed to revive the Temple Bar district the hotel re-opened in 1996. The hotel is now owned by Brushfield Ltd, a company which also includes Derek Quinlan and developer Paddy McKillen. The hotel currently has six floors.
