The Maldron Hotel Parnell Square, owned by the Dalata Hotel Group, has officially relaunched, following a €17m investment and 18 months of construction works.
As part of the refurbishment, completed by Townmore Construction, Dalata purchased 3 Georgian houses on Granby Row allowing for the development of 53 additional bedrooms, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 182. The newly renovated hotel also boasts a brand-new Grain & Grill Bar & Restaurant and a new Red Bean Roastery Coffee Dock which will be open from 7am. Another new feature of the hotel is the large skylight covered atrium space. The renovation has supported the growth in employee numbers, generating an extra 25 positions across the hotel.
The hotel’s lease was acquired in 2007 from Choice Hotels, as part of the acquisition of 9 hotels from the group. In 2014, Dalata purchased the property from the Cassidy Family and subsequently purchased the 3 Georgian houses on Granby Row from the same family.
The re-launch of the Maldron Hotel Parnell Square is the latest in a series of hotel launches and refurbishments to the Maldron Hotel network throughout Ireland, following a multi-million-euro investment.
Philip Uzice, General Manager of the Maldron Hotel Parnell Square, commented: “The hotel has undergone a significant transformation since November 2017 and we look forward to providing our guests with new and improved service offerings in the form of our new Grain & Grill Bar & Restaurant and our new Red Bean Roastery Coffee Dock. I would like to thank our team for their continued support and dedication throughout the construction phase. This was an extremely challenging time for them but they never let service falter throughout.”
Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, Paschal Donohoe T.D., who attended the launch, commented: “Ireland must continue to stay competitive from a tourism perspective and hotels with excellent locations such as the Maldron Parnell Square will ensure that we do so. There is significant development planned for the wider O’ Connell Street area which will be of great benefit to guests at the hotel in the coming years.”
