Ireland's CG Hotels plans new hotel for Dublin Airport, adjacent to Radisson Blu

Ireland-based CG Hotels is looking to build a new 144-guestroom hotel in the parking lot of the Radisson Blu at the Dublin Airport, which it also owns. No brand has been announced for the planned development.

This plan, which has not yet been approved, is in contrast to a previously approved plan to build a €59-million extension to the existing 229-guestroom Radisson Blu, which would have added 314 guestrooms. 

CG Hotels acquired the existing property—formerly a Great Southern Hotel—10 years ago. Last year, the company told the Central Bank that the planned extension was on hold because of the “insecurity and uncertainty surrounding the hotel following the sale of our loan to an unregulated entity.”

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The addition of another hotel at the airport would be a significant boost to the facility, which only has the Radisson and the Clayton, operated by Dalata, located directly on-site. Dalata also owns a 467-guestroom Maldron close to the airport, and is planning to extend the property by 140 guestrooms. A third hotel at the airport itself would help meet some of the city's demand for more rooms, which is still lagging as visitor numbers rise.
