400 New Jobs Announced At New Dublin Airport Hotel

Up to 400 new jobs are to be created following the announcement of a new terminal-linked four star hotel at Dublin Airport.

Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) have revealed some 150 jobs are to be created during the construction of the new hotel, which will be built adjacent to Terminal 2. A further 250 permanent jobs will be created at the new facility once it is completed.

Planning permission for the 11-storey hotel has already been granted and construction is expected to begin next October, with the hotel due to open in 2019.

The new hotel will have a total floor area of 22,840 square metres comprising 402 bedrooms, as well as extensive bar, restaurant, café and conference facilities and a fitness suite. It will occupy a 0.81-acre site between Terminal 2 and the T2 multi-storey car park – and will be located just 95 metres from Terminal 2.

Announcing the new venture, 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. It will also provide much needed additional hotel capacity for the entire Dublin region."
