Dalata Plans Dublin Extension

Dalata plans to upgrade the extension of its Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane in Dublin’s docklands and invest €22m in the project.

The company has posted a planning notice to revise a planning approval and upgrade redevelopment plans at the Cardiff Lane hotel close to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. The notice said Dalata plans to add 117 bedrooms, with the extension over 10 different floors. The hotel currently has 304 rooms.

In August 2019, Dublin City Council granted permission to Dalata for a more modest expansion of the Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane.

Dalata operates 50 hotels across Ireland, the UK and Germany, employing nearly 5,500 staff.

It recently recorded its revenue had increased to €558.3m for 2022, up from €192m the previous year. Dalata also posted a €109.7m profit in 2022, after Covid-19 contributed to an €11.4m loss in 2021.
