Construction Information Services, which monitors projects in development, has announced that there will be 3,000 extra hotel bedrooms in Dublin by 2020, which will include serviced apartments by ASAP members.
As previously reported, SACO is due to open a Locke aparthotel in Dublin on the banks of the River Liffey in late 2019 with 146 units, while Marlin Apartments is developing a 217-bedroom hotel in the city centre.
Dublin’s hotel room stock will rise by 15% over the next three years with new hotels in the Docklands, near the Airport and in other parts of the city. Plans include a €65 million commercial scheme including an eight-storey 393-bed budget hotel, an €18 million redevelopment proposing 249 new rooms, a €40 million change-of-use scheme with 94 new bedrooms and a €28 million, 209-bedroom hotel in Dublin 13. Nearly 600 new rooms will be created around the Airport.
Outside Dublin, there are hotels in development in counties Kildare, Louth, Cork, Galway and Limerick, and Irish hoteliers have generally reported an increase in business in the first half of 2017.
