The 4* Diamond Coast Hotel is located in Enniscrone, Co. Sligo Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way. The client requested a new Hotel Dining Room design to improve the aesthetics and to have options for small and large groups of people due to the popularity of the area for family holidays and groups or tourists.
Hotel Dining Room Design
The following items were designed by Intec Design and built either on site or in a workshop by the contractor and suppliers
- New Bar counters; the existing bar counter location was retained due to existing links to other bar counters. The new bar counters have a striking anthracite paint colour that contrasts with the gold infusion in the antique mirror, brass wall lights and brass features such as the new glass rack.
- New open shelving used to break up the room and frame a new raised floor area that greatly improved the seating layout. The open shelving was filled with interesting bric-a-brac and the posts carry new decorative brass light fittings
- New curved booth seating, low level lighting, wall panelling and tile feature walls have transformed the room and provided plenty of interesting design features to enhance the guests dining experience.

How to design a restaurant for both large and small groups
Often clients will ask us how to design their hotel or restaurant seating to cater for both small and large groups. For this hotel dining room design we created a number of long banquette seats with 2 seater and 4 seater tables. These tables can be moved together to accommodate large groups that wish to sit together. We also formed curved booth seats for up to 6 people that offer a unique dining experience. The use of screens and open shelving throughout the room helps create a welcoming atmosphere and high quality seating options throughout.
