McGettigan’s Glasgow ‘Address’
Members of the McGettigan family have acquired a new hotel in Scotland, expanding their collection to four properties.
Brian and Ciara McGettigan’s The Address Collective has completed the acquisition of the former Pocotel in Glasgow's city centre. The company's current hotel network is made up of two Address Hotels in Dublin and a third in Cork at the former Ambassador Hotel on the city's northside.
The Address said the new six-storey Scottish hotel is prominently positioned on a corner site at West George Street, a listed building with 91 bedrooms, a restaurant, bar, meeting rooms and fitness room. The property also includes two restaurant units leased to third-party operators. The hotel will be re-launched as The Address Hotel Glasgow.
The Address Collective was advised by property advisor Savills Ireland. They said Glasgow offers a robust conference market, and during the 2022/23 season, the city will host over 200 conferences. It is recognised in the top three UK tech cities outside of London, and Glasgow has a growing tech workforce.
"This purchase demonstrates our appetite to grow the Address Collective Brand, and we have plans to create a bespoke product that will enhance Glasgow’s hotel offering," Brian and Ciara McGettigan said.
