The Morrison Hotel Review

A complete design overhaul by hot Irish architect Nikki O'Donnell has returned this sleek, trendy spot to the top of the Northside lodging charts. It showcases new Irish talent in everything from the textiles to the art on the walls and the sculptures in public spaces—there are even famous Irish song lyrics on the walls in some bedrooms. The rooms in general don't do subtlety; there's lot of white contrasted with splashes of bold purples and green in the curtains and pillows. As with most trendy spots, the Morrison inspires reactions: some visitors find it OTT, while others draw comparisons with a London boutique hotel, though it's many times the size. You can find it centrally located, halfway between the Ha'penny and Capel Street bridges, and no more than a 10-minute walk from Trinity College.
