Traditional Meets Modern: The Beacon & Morgan Hotels

Traditional Meets Modern: The Beacon & Morgan Hotels

To us, Dublin has always seemed like a city at the intersection of history and modernity, and both the Beacon and Morgan Hotels fit neatly into that picture...

If these hotels could talk, they might echo the cryptic words of that famous Dubliner, James Joyce, "I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day."

Created by the Fitzpatrick Design Collection, the Beacon (in Sandyford, South Dublin) and the Morgan (in the trendy Temple Bar neighborhood) are decorated in Philippe Starck furniture, glitzy chandeliers and candelabras, and ornate upholstered and mirrored beds.

• The first row of photos shows the Beacon. You can see more right here.
• The second row gives a mini tour of the Morgan, which you can find more on here.
