Laurel and Hardy and the Royal Marine Hotel

September 13, 2012

Check out what we have just come across.... A Picture of Laurel and Hardy on Facebook!

They stayed at the Royal Marine Hotel back in 1953 for 33 days from 9th September until 13th October while performing at the Olympia Theatre :-) Great picture!!!




Rumour has it that they befriended our Concierge during their initial brief stay and decided to stay longer. They got to know the staff and found out that a member of staff had a sick child so Laurel & Hardy stayed longer and did a charity gig in the Olympia Theatre. How nice!

Other guests over the years included many Heads of State, Kings, Queens and celebrities including old blues eyes Frank Sinatra and Charlie Chaplin.
The British Queen Victoria had a 16 course breakfast when she arrived off the boat at Dun Laoghaire and even Irish Freedom Fighter Michael Collins is believed to have hidden out in Room 210 with Kitty Kiernan.
