Design-focused serviced apartment brand Locke has opened its second aparthotel in Dublin, and third location outside of the UK.

Beckett Locke is located behind the city’s 3Arena and features 241 studio apartments with design by London studio AvroKo in collaboration with local firm C+W O’Brien Architects.

Interiors draw inspiration from the city’s maritime history and the Docklands’ industrial heritage. The layout of the social spaces is inspired by a traditional Docklands market hall, with a co-working space, coffee shop, meeting rooms, cocktail bar and restaurant all set around a central glass atrium.

The apartments range from 23 sqm to 53 sqm and each include a fully fitted kitchen, living and dining space. The accommodation has been designed in-house by Edyn Development Studio and include black steel, exposed concrete and rust-coloured soft furnishings which are meant to reflect the colour ways and history of the Docklands.

The dining concepts are overseen by Alan Clancy’s restaurant group Nola Clan. North 7th Coffee offers coffee, pastries and sandwiches for the co-working area, while The Bells restaurant provides a contemporary Irish take on classic dishes with freshly sourced ingredients.

Cocktail bar Sam’s Corner, meanwhile, serves handcrafted drinks inspired by the aparthotel’s namesake, playwright Samuel Beckett.

There is also meeting and event space for up to 100 people, and the aparthotel will host a programme of events, talks and workshops by local businesses and creatives.

It is within walking distance of Silicon Docks, The Convention Centre Dublin and the IFSC, and a 15-minute drive to Dublin airport.

Earlier this year the brand debuted in Dublin with the 160-room Zanzibar Locke by Ha’penny Bridge.

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. Dublin has always been an important city for us, and we’re excited to bring Locke’s distinctive and vibrant personality to the rapidly expanding Docklands area. 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.”

The Locke brand was launched in 2016, and is named after 17th century English philosopher and physician John Locke. Beckett Locke joins four existing London properties, Eden Locke in Edinburgh, Whitworth Locke in Manchester, and the recently opened Schwan Locke in Munich and Turing Locke in Cambridge.
