The company that runs Dublin and Cork airports is seeking expressions of interest for a company or consortium to design and build, finance and operate a new 400-bedroom terminal-linked hotel at the Dublin facility.
DAA, formerly Dublin Airport Authority, says the 4-star-plus property, on a site linked directly to Terminal 2, will be one of Ireland’s largest hotels. It will be operated by the winning bidder for 100 years before being transferred back to DAA.
The company has planning permission for a 402-bedroom building. The permission runs out next March and the winning bidder will have to reapply and will be able to modify current plans if thought necessary.
Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: “This is a unique opportunity to build and operate a new terminal-linked hotel at one of Ireland’s premier locations.
“The airport and the greater Dublin area both require additional hotel beds and this development will bring significant economic benefits both to the local area and the greater Dublin region.”
The airport is Ireland’s key international gateway. It welcomed a record 29.6m passengers last year and is showing further growth in 2018, with 14 new routes and four new airlines starting operations during the current summer season.
