Irish Oak Hotel

The rooms of the Irish Oak Hotel are so popular you'll need the luck o' the Irish to get one!

The Irish Oak Hotel would make a great Lego set because it is architecturally interesting, has a highly detailed interior and includes a wide variety of minifigures. It will provide accommodation for your minifigures and is a great display piece.

The Irish Oak Hotel is a corner modular building that is supposed to be a modern interpretation of a medieval Irish castle. Many Irish castles have been turned into hotels, which is where the inspiration for this modular comes from.

The Irish Oak Hotel is unique as it has a more homely and personalised atmosphere. Guests can be entertained with traditional Irish music by the proprietors, sit by the fire and have a chat or explore the  charming building whenever they wish. 

The building is made of 3 floors, plus the roof. The first floor is the reception and drinks area(no alcohol), the second and third floors are guest rooms. Both second and third floors have 3 rooms, so there is a total of 6 rooms. (4 small rooms and 2 large rooms).

 

Exterior:

  • The entire building features brick details using 1x2 ingot pieces.
  • Chain pieces (2nd floor) have been used to represent the 'chain pattern' which is present throughout the Celtic culture.
  • The middle window of the 2nd and 3rd floor uses an Elves fence piece; the organic look represents the connection to nature also present in Celtic culture.
  • This connection to nature is also found in the ornamental Oak tree on the corner (ground floor) which is where the name for this project comes from.
  • Binocular pieces are used for greebling in the 3rd floor
  • Tap pieces are used for the roof
  • The battlements on the roof continue the castle theme
  • There are two entrances, both with wooden doors and golden bar handles
  • The entrances also feature a lion carving and  green flag
  • There are torches on either side of both entrances with green 'flames', again showing the castle theme
