From Hotel to Homes: How History Repeats Itself in Luxury Living

With its tree-lined avenues and beautiful Victorian red-brick estates, Ballsbridge has always been a vibrant and upbeat suburb. Often entertaining those who have made Ballsbridge their home, but also those visiting Dublin. The Berkeley Court Hotel was a prime example of how Ballsbridge was the perfect place to stay for both work and pleasure. Although The Berkeley Court is no longer standing, the theme of residential catering is still first and foremost. In its place, is now a top-tier residential property catering for longer term living.

Take a step back in Irish history where over four decades ago, The Berkeley Court Hotel hosted two hundred bedrooms to accommodate continental guests, with a particular focus on American guests traveling overseas. As the luxury details were emphasised, this now reflects the luxuries of the brand-new Lansdowne Place catering to an international audience. Because of the central location, The Berkeley Court Hotel was a unique piece of Irish social and sporting history which now intertwines with the modern aspects of lavish living.

Still in keeping with the theme of luxury living, Lansdowne Place is now situated in the former home of Berkeley Court Hotel. What was once seen as a luxury hotel with an emphasis on first class comfort, is now Dublin’s most prestigious address for homes near the city centre.


Lansdowne Place is the perfect example of how location, design, material and craftsmanship combine for the ultimate lifestyle. The residents have plenty to enjoy, from a sanctuary like lounge where you can enjoy a tea or coffee and a 24-hour gym to a relaxing wellness centre and a private cinema.

In addition to the amenities that Lansdowne Place holds, Ballsbridge itself boasts an array of pubs, eateries and retail. The premier shopping district of Grafton Street and St Stephen’s Green are also located just a short distance away, just far enough to enjoy peace and tranquillity, yet close enough to feel like you’re at the heart of all that Dublin has to offer.
