Whitbread PLC, the UK’s largest hotel business and owner of Premier Inn, has opened the doors to the most westerly hotel at Cork City, Ireland.
The 187-bedroom hotel is the first Premier Inn to open outside of Dublin and represents a significant moment for the business as it builds a network of Premier Inn hotels across Ireland.
Including the new Cork hotel, Premier Inn customers can now choose from six hotels and more than 1,000 bedrooms across Ireland, and Whitbread believes there is significant potential to expand the brand further into other towns and cities across the country.
Premier Inn Cork City Centre is located at Morrison’s Quay overlooking the south channel of the River Lee on a site that once housed the famous Moore’s Hotel in the city. In a sensitive redevelopment of the heritage location, the new Premier Inn hotel was constructed alongside three own-door office buildings fronting onto the quay (11,12 and 13 Morrisons Quay).
More than 40 team members have been recruited to welcome guests to the new Premier Inn following a series of successful recruitment events and presentations in the city in 2023.
The Cork City Centre Premier Inn was developed by Warren Private and Greenleaf, with Cavan-based Elliott Group leading the construction of the hotel and office buildings. Construction work began in August 2021 and Practical Completion of the hotel was achieved on 24th November 2023.
