This hotel has now closed to regular guests.

According to a report from The Irish Times the property is to become a centre for asylum seekers.

IHG Hotels and Resorts has announced the opening of Holiday Inn Dublin Airport, Ireland in partnership with JMK Group. This is the first new-build Holiday Inn in Dublin and IHG’s eighth hotel in Ireland.

The hotel is only a ten-minute drive or free shuttle from Dublin Airport T1 and T2 and a 15-minute drive to Dublin City Centre.

Holiday Inn Dublin Airport features 421 modern rooms equipped with in-room sofa beds, a dedicated work area, smart TV, tea, and coffee facilities. The signature ‘Open Lobby’ offers a cohesive space with a bright, contemporary feel, offering guests the space to socialise and unwind.

The hotel houses a full-service restaurant that is open all day serving an international menu made with locally sourced products. Alternatively, guests can opt for light bites from Starbucks or the hotel’s 24-hour snack bar.

The onsite meeting facilities can accommodate up to 120 delegates.

John Kajani, chairman of the JMK Group, said:

“We are really pleased to partner with IHG Hotels and Resorts and provide future guests with the unmatched comfort and hospitality that comes with staying at Holiday Inn Dublin Airport, a wonderful achievement in light of the ongoing pandemic”.

Garret O’Neill, general manager at Holiday Inn Dublin Airport, commented:

“We are delighted to be the newest Holiday Inn opening this year in Ireland, and more broadly across Europe. We look forward to welcoming guests and loyal IHG Rewards members to the hotel, which has excellent access to Dublin Airport and our vibrant city”.
