Dalata Dublin rates soar

 Hotel group Dalata has said the Dublin market was “very strong” during the second half of the year with revenue per available room at its hotels up 9.5 per cent for the year.
 The company, which is the largest operator of hotels in the State, said trading in the final four months of the year has been as expected and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) will be in line with market expectations.
 Outside Dublin, Dalata said its regional Irish portfolio “continues to be very strong” with an increase of 8.7 per cent in revenue per available room for the 11 months to the end of November.
Growth in room revenue at Dalata’s London hotels has been slower, leading to lower growth in its overall UK and Northern Ireland portfolio.
However, the year to date growth at the end of November was still the strongest of its three regions at 10.4 per cent.
 
Hotel LaTour Birmingham and the Clarion Hotel Liffey Valley in Dublin have both been successfully rebranded as Clayton hotels. There are now 19 Clayton hotels in Ireland and the UK with over 4,800 rooms.
 
The company said an additional 35 rooms, a new restaurant and refurbished meeting facilities were completed at the Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport in November. An additional 106 bedrooms are on course to open in May 2018.
 
Construction is coming to a conclusion at a 237 room Maldron Hotel Belfast City which is now scheduled to open in mid-March.
 
Construction continues at the Maldron Hotel Kevin Street, Dublin, as well as the Clayton Hotel Charlemont, Dublin, which are scheduled to open in June and November 2018 respectively.
 
Work has also begun on the 164 room Maldron Hotel South Mall in Cork during November and is scheduled to be completed in December 2018.
 
In Dublin, construction has recently begun on extensions to the Clayton Hotel, Ballsbridge (31 rooms), and the Maldron Hotel Parnell Square, Dublin (53 rooms), which will open in August 2018 and December 2018 respectively.
 
Construction at the Maldron Hotel Sandyroad, Galway is “well underway” where Dalata is constructing an additional 64 rooms, new meeting facilities as well as refurbishing all existing bedrooms and the public areas. The project will be completed by June 2018.
 
Dalata deputy chief executive Dermot Crowley said 2017 had been “another very successful year” for the firm.
