Twilfit House purchase marks Premier Inn's first freehold acquisition in Dublin city centre as the UK's leading hotel brand searches for up to 2,500 bedrooms in the city

Whitbread, the owner of the Premier Inn hotel chain, has completed a freehold deal to purchase the Twilfit House development site in Dublin 1 for a new build 180-bedroom Premier Inn hotel.

The purchase is Whitbread's first freehold acquisition in Dublin and represents a significant step in Premier Inn's expansion into Ireland as the business looks to fulfil a requirement for 2,000-2,500 bedrooms in Dublin.

Situated in a prime location in Dublin 1, Twilfit House is close to O'Connell Street, Temple Bar, Trinity College and many other major tourist attractions. Its proximity next to the Jervis Street Luas stop also makes it a highly accessible location from across the city.

Whitbread has acquired the freehold on the Twilfit House site from Abarta Investments ICAV. The investment fund had previously secured full planning permission from Dublin City Council to build a 180-bedroom hotel on the site. The planning consent was upheld by An Bord Pleanála in late December 2018 and, upon expiration of the existing tenancies, Whitbread will demolish the existing three-storey Twilfit House building and construct a new seven-storey Premier Inn hotel on the site.
