With Temple Bar and Dublin Castle on its doorstep, the new hotel on South Great George’s Street promises an affordable way to explore the capital city.

Famed for its cobbled streets, historical landmarks, picturesque architecture and of course a lively night life, Dublin is a must-visit city and is the location of Premier Inn’s latest Irish offering.

Situated on South Great George’s Street, in the heart of the city, the hotel, named Premier Inn Dublin City Centre, has a history going back to the 1890s, having taken over a previously unoccupied corner block of the city, that before then was more-commonly known as the home of Winston’s Department Store. 

Following a total investment of €19 million, the newly refurbished Victorian terrace building offers an affordable way to explore the much-loved city, all the while staying true to the heritage of the area, and providing the expert quality hotel experience that Premier Inn customers have come to know and love.

The new property has 97 bedrooms, each featuring a super-comfy Hypnos bed, a power shower, free Wi-Fi, tea & coffee and a Freeview TV, so that guests can enjoy a relaxing city break.  The property also boasts a contemporary restaurant and bar serving breakfast and dinner for visitors to unwind and enjoy a delicious bite to eat, ahead of whatever they have planned for their time in Dublin.  

Whether taking a weekend trip or travelling for work, some of Dublin’s most well-known attractions are right on the hotel’s doorstep. Guests at the property can conveniently stroll to Temple Bar, often described as Dublin’s ‘bohemian quarter’, to enjoy a host of entertainment, art and culinary delights, or for those after an insight into the history of the city, Dublin Castle or the National Museum of Ireland are close by. The city centre hotel is also located next door to one of Dublin’s most iconic shopping destinations the George’s Street Arcade.

The opening is the first of five new Premier Inn hotels planned for Dublin city centre, as the iconic brand is set to open hotels from late 2022 on Gloucester Street; Newmarket, near St Patrick’s Cathedral; Castleforbes and Twilfit, near O’Connell Street.  There is also an additional Premier Inn hotel being built at Morrison Quay, Cork. 

Simon Ewins, Managing Director of Premier Inn, comments:

“We are thrilled to open our first hotel in Dublin city centre, right in the heart of this amazing city. Dublin is known for being one of the world’s most captivating, lively and historic cities, so we couldn’t be more delighted to open our doors here and we see a very bright future for Premier Inn in the city.

“The new hotel offers guests an affordable way to explore Dublin, with key sites and landmarks right on the doorstep. The opening is an important moment for us as we grow Premier Inn in Dublin, and with the ability to travel starting to open up more widely, we are looking forward to welcoming guests and wowing them with our great value and high standards.”
