The Europe Hotel & Resort, Killarney, Ireland

This large resort hotel is in a beautiful setting next to a lake in County Kerry, Ireland. dpa were asked to be involved with its refurbishment in collaboration with interior designers Hirsch Bedner Associates.

The Hotel presents an air of luxury, with the modern innovation of the crystal-themed bar in contrast to the traditional feel of the wood-and-leather Library, while the focus of most rooms is the views toward the lake via a high degree of transparency.

Lighting was used in all areas to enhance these objectives, working around the limitations of the existing structure of the building.
