Trendy new aparthotel opens in one of Dublin’s hottest up-and-coming neighbourhoods

Lifestyle aparthotel brand Locke has  announced the official launch of Beckett Locke in the centre of Dublin’s thriving Docklands area. 

The opening will mark Locke’s third location outside of the UK, which also includes the recently opened Zanzibar Locke by Dublin’s Ha’penny Bridge, and Schwan Locke in Munich.

Tucked behind the 3Arena, the 241-studio aparthotel will become a new hub for culture and entertainment in the city. Set around a naturally lit atrium, Beckett Locke features a neighbourhood co-working space, artisan coffee shop, restaurant and intimate cocktail bar in addition to meeting and event space for up to 100 people. Beckett Locke’s beautifully designed apartments (which range from 23sqm to 53sqm) each feature fully-fitted kitchens, living and dining space – making them suitable for short, medium, and long stays.

Stephen McCall, CEO of Locke’s parent company edyn said, “We are thrilled to open Beckett Locke, our second home in Dublin and the third international property in the Locke family. The Locke experience ranges from cultural programming to creative partnerships and our ambition is to establish Beckett Locke as a creative hub for guests and locals alike.”

Designed by the London studio of globally renowned design firm AvroKO in collaboration with local firm C+W O’Brien Architects, the interiors of Beckett Locke take their cue from Dublin’s maritime history and the Docklands’ deep industrial heritage.

The layout of the social spaces are inspired by a traditional Docklands market hall – comprising a co-working area, meeting rooms, cocktail bar, coffee shop and restaurant, all set around a central glass atrium. The assimilation of local narratives flows into the apartments, which feature black steel, exposed concrete and rust-coloured soft furnishings, which evoke the intrepid colourways and history of the Docklands. Unique to Beckett Locke, each studio apartment has been designed in-house by edyn Development Studio.

Beckett Locke also houses three new food and drink concepts by Alan Clancy’s native restaurant group, NolaClan (House Dublin, 9 Below and Xico). ‘North 7th Coffee’ will fuel the co-working space from the early morning throughout the day, serving artisan coffee, delicate pastries, and hearty sandwiches. Meanwhile, ‘The Belis’ restaurant will offer a contemporary Irish take on classic dishes using freshly sourced ingredients. Nestled in a decadent theatre-like setting, complete with rich red velvets and draped chain canopy, ‘Sam’s Corner’ will shake up handcrafted cocktails inspired by Beckett Locke’s namesake, playwright Samuel Beckett. 

Beckett Locke will also host an evolving cultural activation programme where locals and guests can participate talks, events and workshops hosted by local businesses and creatives. This will be complemented by an evolving cultural activation series, which will invite local creatives, brands, and businesses to host talks, workshops and events.

Locke’s hybrid ‘home-meets-hotel’ concept has proven popular among guests seeking flexible accommodation for a night, to a month or longer. Each apartment provides the space and comfort of home – including fully fitted kitchens, adaptable living areas where guests can dine or work, and ample storage – with industry-leading design and guest experience. This is combined with the social attributes of a lifestyle hotel, including buzzy co-working spaces, original food and drink concepts and a team of local house hosts. 

The opening of Beckett Locke follows the successful launch of the 160-apartment Zanzibar Locke, which opened by Ha’penny Bridge in the centre of Dublin in June this year.

Room rates at Beckett Locke start from €110 per night. Discounted rates are also available for mid- to long-stay guests.

Tucked between Cusco and Machu Picchu, in the heart of the Sacred Valley, StarDome Peru, a one-of-a-kind geodesic dome boutique hotel, has officially opened its doors.

Co-founded and run by the local indigenous Quechuan community, StarDome Peru provides curious travellers with firsthand cultural immersions and transformational experiences led by locals.

Accepting reservations starting Feb. 1, the property is the “epitome of rugged luxury, where heated marble floors and handmade ceramic bathrooms are contrasted by an ultra-remote location only accessible through a private road and a staff that, while enthusiastic to serve, is 100% local with no prior hospitality training.

With prime location and deep local roots, StarDome Peru serves as a gateway to the region and is passionate about providing native cultural experiences, nature immersions and spiritual encounters for those seeking not just to travel, but to heal. StarDome Peru’s structure is that of a geodesic dome where the bottom floor offers access to five guest suites and the top floor offers the unique and immersive StarDeck — the heart of the property. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls, 360 degree views and a telescope allow for guests to feel like they are one with the sky. The space is built for lounging, stargazing or hosting events.  Guests can choose from six accommodation options.

Within the StarDome guests can choose from five suites: the Garden Mountain, Garden Valley, one of two Sacred Valley Suites and the owner’s personal hideout, the Royal Mountain Suite. Inspired by traditional Incan decor and construction, all of the suites include heated marble floors, a private stone shower, traditional Inca-inspired tiling by world-renowned Peruvian ceramic artist Seminario, queen-sized beds, handmade blankets and hotel-like amenities.

Meanwhile, the Royal Mountain Suite offers a luxurious space like no other with double the room, a King-sized bed, a double jacuzzi and a private entrance to the StarDeck, in addition to the most iconic view of the region. Towering above StarDome in a stand-alone, cabin-like structure, the Royal Apu Suite, offers guests the best views and ultimate privacy.  Included with each suite booking is a traditional breakfast at the StarDome’s signature restaurant Apu, with options for private dining experiences that showcase the refined culinary heritage of Peru and highlight local chefs.

Future plans call for as many as ten more suites, a healing center for yoga and groups up to 20 with floor-to-ceiling glass walls and endless views. Guests can book either nightly stays or three to six-day all-inclusive personal retreat packages that cover everything from accommodations and transportation, to meals and curated experiences.

Led by Quechua Inca community members and elders, StarDome guests can take part in unforgettable experiences like healing ceremonies, plant medicine encounters, and natural excursions to some of the area’s most sought-after destinations, such as the renowned Machu Picchu, the Puma Marca Archeological Site, and the ancient village of Ollantaytambo, to name a few.

Catering to solo travelers, couples and groups alike, StarDome Peru also offers buy-out options. Introductory nightly rates start from $399 during low season and $1,299 during high season.

The 25Hours Hotel in Florence, Italy, forces guests to spend a night in Heaven or Hell

A new opening by 25hours Hotels in Florence, Italy is anything but cookie cutter — giving guests the chance to stay in Heaven or Hell.
