DAA to develop country’s fourth largest hotel at Dublin Airport site

The DAA is seeking expressions of interest for the development and operation of a new 402-bedroom four-star hotel at Terminal 2.

The new hotel, which will be the country’s fourth-largest, will provide employment for 250 people. Another 150 jobs will be created during construction.
The authority has already been granted planning permission for the 22,848 sq m building, which will have a bar, restaurant, cafe, and conference facilities. The hotel will occupy a 0.8-acre site between Terminal 2 and the T2 multi-storey car park.

Property consultants Savills Hotels and Leisure will seek expressions of interest on behalf of the DAA. The managing director of the DAA, Vincent Harrison, said the hotel would provide “much needed additional hotel capacity for the entire Dublin region”.
The successful bidder will build and run it before transferring it back to DAA.
