Mrs Eckdorf in O’Neill’s Hotel

The probings of an outsider bring havoc to a crumbling Dublin hotel.

What was the tragedy that turned O’Neill’s hotel from plush establishment into a dingy house of disrepute? Ivy Eckdorf is determined to find out. A professional photographer, she has come to Dublin convinced that a tragic and beautiful tale lies behind the facade of this crumbling hotel.

The aging proprietor lies dying upstairs while her feckless son is lost in a world of drink and horseracing; and the loyal O’Shea, accompanied everywhere by his greyhound, seeks to keep the hotel on the road. As Mrs Eckdorf worms her way into lives that centre on the hotel, she becomes as much a victim as they are.
