Conrad Dublin was hand-picked by Hilton's in-house architecture and design team to take part in the podcast project. The podcast highlights the fascinating history and design of the property which took inspiration for its €13 million refurbishment from the beautiful Iveagh Gardens opposite - one of the finest and least known of Dublin's parks and gardens designed by famed landscape gardener Ninian Niven.

Other features include the Lemuel's lounge bar which has drawn inspiration from Jonathan Swift's castaway classic 'Gulliver's Travels' and named after the fictional protagonist and titular character Lemuel Gulliver. Designed to evoke some of the magic and curiosity of this famous tale, the tables in the bar have been created from the design of the marbled book binding and coverage of Swift's most famous work. The ceiling has an ornate metal cast map depicting some of the key islands mentioned in Gulliver's Travels. 

The other four hotels profiled in the new audio guides are Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre (Iceland); Hilton London Bankside (United Kingdom); Hilton Paris Opera (France); and Reichshof Hamburg - Curio Collection by Hilton (Germany).
