Originally known as Hayes Royal Hotel, William Dargan builder of the Kingstown Railway bought out the Royal Hotel in 1863 and built the Royal Marine Hotel & Spa designed by John McCurdy who also designed many other buildings and churches of significance in Ireland during this period.
The old Hayes Royal Hotel was incorporated into the design, but later demolished in the 1960’s. The newly developed Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire in South Dublin first opened its doors for business in 1865 and has been a Dublin institution ever since.
The Royal Marine is regarded as one of the finest 4 star hotels in Dublin and has hosted many Heads of State, Kings, Queens and celebrities including old blues eyes Frank Sinatra.
