Ireland’s Dublin Airport is set to build a new four-star hotel between the airport’s Terminal 2 (T2) and the T2 multi-storey car park.

The airport has already received planning permission for the new hotel, which will have 11 floors and 402 bedrooms.

With a floor area of 22,840m², the hotel will also feature a bar, a restaurant, a café, and conference and gym facilities.

Construction of the building is expected to begin in October 2017, and it is scheduled to open in 2019.

"This development will benefit not just the airport but the city and region as a whole, as Dublin needs more hotel beds."

Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: “There is significant demand for a new terminal-linked hotel at Dublin Airport and this development will benefit not just the airport but the city and region as a whole, as Dublin needs more hotel beds.

“It will also provide employment for 250 people, as well as a further 150 construction jobs during the building programme, which is expected to last about 18 months.

“We’re constantly striving to improve the product that we provide to our customers and this new hotel will offer extra choice and convenience to passengers and to the many companies that are based on the Dublin Airport campus."

The airport authority has already appointed Savills Hotels & Leisure to seek expressions of interest for the development and operation of the hotel.

The selected bidder will construct and run the hotel for a specified period of time, before returning it to the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA).
