Hotel rooms

City Snapshot: Over 7,000 additional hotel rooms planned for Dublin [Infographic]

The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database shows that the hotel scene in the Irish capital will grow considerably in the coming years, particularly in the four-star market.

A total of 53 new hotels with 7,549 rooms are set to open in Dublin, our researchers can reveal. We learn more about these upcoming launches.

Hotel openings in Dublin by year

In what remains of 2021, 11 new properties with 1,816 rooms are gearing up to launch. Next year, another ten projects with 1,524 keys are set to debut, though things will slow down a bit in 2023, when seven launches with 914 rooms are scheduled. And Dublin’s hotel pipeline looks healthy for 2024 and beyond, with 25 projects set to increase the city’s supply 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) to cater to the five-star market.

Dublin’s must-see hotel projects

The first of Dublin’s standout projects is due for completion in December 2021. The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Dublin on Chancery Lane extension will increase its room count by 84 keys, while adding a spa, gym and shops. It’s all part of a larger development near the hotel, including apartments, offices, and a convention center.

A month later, in January 2022, Staycity Trinity Market will open its doors right at the entrance of the famous Trinity College. Tetrarch Capital is supporting this apartment hotel project, which will include 142 studios and suites with kitchenettes, reception area, lounge and work space, exercise room and laundry facilities.

Much further afield – early 2026 to be precise – the Standard Hotel Dublin will open near Connolly Station. This 200-room hotel is 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 district that appeals to both Dubliners and visitors to the Irish capital.
