Premier Inn, Dublin City Hotel Opens

Budget Hotel opens in Dublin City Centre – rooms from €75 per night

The first Premier Inn in Dublin city centre opened on Monday 1 November on Dublin’s South Great George’s St and Mercer Streets. The premises had been vacant since the early 1990s and the new owners have spent €19m renovating and improving the building.

With Temple Bar and Dublin Castle on its doorstep, the new hotel on South Great George’s Street promises an affordable way to explore the capital city. Visitors booking well in advance may find unbeatable rates from €60 per night.

Famed for its cobbled streets, historical landmarks, picturesque architecture and of course a lively night life, Dublin is a must-visit city and is the location of Premier Inn’s latest Irish offering. Dublin appeared as seventh in the world on the Lonely Planet list of cities to visit for 2022.

Situated on South Great George’s Street in the heart of the city, Premier Inn Dublin City Centre has a history going back to the 1890s. The hotel has taken over a previously unoccupied corner block of the city, that before was more-commonly known as the home of Winston’s Department Store and Dockrell’s Hardware store.

Following a total investment of €19 million, the newly refurbished Victorian terrace building offers an affordable way to explore the much-loved city. While staying true to the heritage of the area, it provides the expert quality hotel experience that Premier Inn customers have come to know and love.

The new property has 97 bedrooms, each featuring a super-comfy Hypnos bed, a power shower, free Wi-Fi, tea & coffee and a Freeview TV, so that guests can enjoy a relaxing city break. The property also boasts a contemporary restaurant and bar serving breakfast and dinner for visitors to unwind and enjoy a delicious bite to eat, ahead of whatever they have planned for their time in Dublin.  

The opening is the first of five new Premier Inn hotels planned for Dublin city centre, as the budget brand is set to open hotels from late 2022 on Gloucester Street; Newmarket, near St Patrick’s Cathedral; Castleforbes and Twilfit, near O’Connell Street. There is also an additional Premier Inn hotel being built at Morrison Quay, Cork. 

Simon Ewins, Managing Director of Premier Inn, comments:

“We are thrilled to open our first hotel in Dublin city centre, right in the heart of this amazing city. Dublin is known for being one of the world’s most captivating, lively and historic cities, so we couldn’t be more delighted to open our doors here and we see a very bright future for Premier Inn in the city.

“The new hotel offers guests an affordable way to explore Dublin, with key sites and landmarks right on the doorstep. The opening is an important moment for us as we grow Premier Inn in Dublin, and with the ability to travel starting to open up more widely, we are looking forward to welcoming guests and wowing them with our great value and high standards.”
