Premier Inn acquires 250-bedroom hotel in Dublin

Whitbread, the owner and operator of Premier Inn, has secured a pre-let deal for a new 250-bedroom Premier Inn hotel at Castleforbes Business Park in Dublin, Ireland.

The deal is the third to be signed by Whitbread in Dublin in the past year and marks the largest acquisition by the hotel brand in Ireland to date, bolstering the hotelier’s “ambitions” of 2,500 bedrooms in the Irish capital.

Kevin Murray, head of acquisitions (North and Ireland) for Whitbread, said: “Securing a new Premier Inn at Castleforbes builds further momentum to our acquisition drive in Dublin. As the city’s new and expanding tech centre, and one of the best hotel trading locations, Castleforbes is an excellent location for our largest Premier Inn hotel to date in Dublin.

“With significant bedroom requirements in the city we are actively exploring other live freehold and leasehold opportunities as we work to secure up to 2,500 Premier Inn bedrooms in Dublin.”
