Hard Rock to Open Casino in Dublin

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

American gaming group Hard Rock International has announced that they're planning to build and open a new casino resort in Dublin, Ireland, bringing their music-themed digs to the country.

The resort is expected to have 120 hotel rooms and will also feature a full casino that would be operated 24 hours a day. As is fitting with Hard Rock properties, the resort will feature a heavy music influence, complete with a stage, restaurants, and bars. The property is expected to have two structures, with Hard Rock renovating two properties, the Fashion House Building and the current Parliament Hotel.

The property is expected to open sometime near the end of 2020.

Commenting on the development, Hard Rock International Senior VP of Global Hotel Development Todd Hricko said, "Ireland has always been a place close to our hearts, and it only seems right to open a Hard Rock Hotel in Dublin, given the city's musical roots. This is an exciting opportunity to extend our presence in Europe and elevate the one-of-a-kind offering at Hard Rock Hotels to the next level."

Sound like a great plan from Hard Rock and I'm sure they've made their researches all the way before the jump to the Irish market.
Seems to me that the task would be nothing but success for the company and they could start taking advantage from their world wide famous brand in the years to come by opening more of these across the globe.
