City overview: More than 7,000 additional hotel rooms planned for Dublin [Infographic]

by | 27 Nov 2021 | Hotel Projects, Pipeline, Projects

The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database shows that the Irish capital’s hospitality scene will grow considerably in the years ahead, especially in the four-star market.

A total of 53 new hotels with 7,549 rooms are due to open across Dublin, our researchers can reveal. We find out more about these upcoming launches.

Dublin’s hotel openings by year

In what remains of 2021, 11 new properties with 1,816 rooms are gearing up to launch. Next year, ten more projects with 1,524 keys are slated to make their debut, although things will slow down a bit in 2023, when seven launches with 914 rooms are pencilled in. And Dublin’s hotel pipeline is looking healthy for 2024 and beyond, with 25 projects set to grow the city’s offering by 3,205 keys.

Of the city’s 53 new properties, the vast majority (45) will be in the four-star segment, leaving relatively few (eight) addressing the needs of the five-star market.

Dublin’s must-watch hotel projects

The first of Dublin’s most noteworthy projects should be completed in December 2021. Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Dublin on Chancery Lane’s extension will increase its room count by 84 keys, while also adding a spa, a gym and retail facilities. All this forms part of a larger development in the hotel’s vicinity, featuring apartments, offices and a convention centre.

Just a month later, in January 2022, Staycity Trinity Market will open its doors right at the entrance to the famous Trinity College. Tetrarch Capital is backing this aparthotel project, which will incorporate 142 studios and suites with kitchenettes, a reception area, a lounge and workspace, an exercise room and guest laundry facilities.

Much further down the line – early 2026 to be precise – The Standard Hotel Dublin will launch close to Connolly railway station. This 200-room hotel represents part of a larger development that includes 741 new homes, two office buildings and 20 retail units. The aim is to create a vibrant new mixed-use quarter that appeals to both Dubliners and visitors to the Irish capital.
