Merrion Pre-Tax Fall

Pre-tax profits at the Merrion Hotel last year decreased by 11pc to €1.45m
 Revenues rose  by 5pc from €16.8m to €17.64m in the 12 months to the end of October last.
 In January, the hotel embarked on the 22 month long construction programme that added the 12 new private residences, a new spa and restaurant overlooking the hotel garden.
 The pre-tax profit also takes into account the non-cash depreciation cost of €436,961 last year and the rise in depreciation costs last year compared to a much lower depreciation charge of €276,686 in 2013 was a significant contributor to the lower pre-tax profits last year.
