Drawing inspiration from the life of famed Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde, who is memorialised in a sculpture just a short walk away, the Wilde Aparthotel by Staycity has 106 quirky rooms with imaginative design touches.

Staycity CEO Tom Walsh was by joined by Oscar Wilde’s only grandson, Merlin Holland, for the cutting of the ribbon at yesterday’s official opening ceremony.

Future aparthotels under the Wilde brand are already planned by Staycity in Edinburgh, Berlin and Manchester.
