24 new hotels holding 4,500 rooms will be delivered in Dublin by the end of 2023, according to new figures.
Despite a significant increase in the number of hotels being constructed in the capital in recent years, the market pre-Covid remained under supplied.
This lead to high room occupancy and low availability. This was damaging to the city’s reputation and ability to compete with other European destinations.
With tourism expected to return to pre-pandemic levels in the next two to three years, Dublin’s increased supply of hotel rooms will provide value and choice, which will be good for Irish tourism.
2,100 rooms will be completed by the end of this year, with 1,600 expected in 2022 and 800 in 2023.
The new hotels opening in the capital this summer are the Hampton by Hilton Four Courts; Beckett Locke, next to the 3Arena; the Wren, located in the centre of Dublin between Grafton Street and Dame Street, and the Weatherspoons-owned Keavan’s Port Hotel on Camden Street.
