Clayton Hotel at Dublin Airport with Skopos

This week we spent a wonderful day at BCFA Open Dublin held in the Guiness Storehouse at St James Gate in Dublin.  We will celebrate projects located in Dublin throughout June and we are thrilled to share with you BCFA member Skopos’ recent Clayton Hotel project at Dublin Airport which will launch on the 21st June.

Strategically located the Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport is easily accessible from all parts of the country. Just minutes from Dublin Airport, the hotel is an ideal stop over choice for visitors flying into or out of Dublin.


Dalata group, the owners of the hotel, wanted to complete a full refurbishment which was undertaken by JJ Rhatigan. They approached Cunningham Mclean to use the Clayton template scheme which has been live since 2015. The Scheme had been developed by Skopos Bespoke design service, working to a brief supplied by the interiors team.  The curtains were required to be a plain linen look in a neutral colourway. For the throws, the interiors team asked for a black and gold contemporary design with a circular motif. The Skopos Bespoke team used an existing fabric as a starting point and created the luxurious looking ‘Rings’ design, a woven print which is 100% Trevira CS.

Skopos supplied curtains, sheers, bedding and cushions for 104 rooms in total. The curtains are a Bespoke fabric Linas Mink. This wide width fabric was paired with a blackout lining for the curtains to meet the customers brief.


Shantung Ice was used for the sheer, to add a simple elegance to the scheme.  Lined, quilted throws in the Rings fabric were supplied for all rooms. For the Superior and Executive rooms, a velvet reverse was added on the throws. Skopos Beau Blaze was chosen to give the luxurious finish. Matching Beau velvet cushions with a bespoke print were also included.

Skopos also completed installation as a full service project, including the supply and fitting of all curtain tracks, curtains, bedding and cushions.
