The newest hotel in Dublin opened on Friday and offers 189 rooms on the banks of the Grand Canal of the capital, after an investment of € 40 million.
The 4-star Clayton Hotel in Charlemont, near Portobello in Dublin 8, is built in three 18th-century Georgian buildings with an additional four-storey building connected by an atrium.
The 24-month construction by the largest hotel group of the state, Dalata, has resulted in the creation of 100 jobs.
Apart from the rooms, the hotel has a gym, two restaurants and six meeting rooms.
"Today is an exciting day for the Clayton hotel Charlemont team," said the hotel's general manager, Lynn Cawley.
"Careful attention has been paid to creating this beautiful hotel Clayton Hotel Charlemont is a truly unique hotel, from honoring the heritage of Georgian buildings to adding new architecture to Dublin's urban landscape."
In March, Dalata bought 38 Charlemont Street, a small site next to the Clayton Hotel, for about € 500,000. The group submitted plans for a café and two additional bedrooms adjacent to the hotel.
The listed company recently opened a new Maldron hotel on the corner of Kevin Street, close to St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin. It is understood that occupancy rates in the building in September and October have exceeded the 90 percent mark.
Dalata controls about a fifth of the hotel stock in Dublin. About a quarter of the capacity is in the UK, while the remainder is spread over several regions of Ireland, where revenues increase by more than 8% annually.
