Whitbread Signs Premier Inn Hotel in Cork, Ireland
Scheduled for 2023
Located in a prime location at Morrisons Quay on the banks of the River Lee, the new 183-bedroom Cork Premier Inn hotel is Ireland's first Premier Inn hotel outside of Dublin.
After signaling its intent to expand into the Irish market last year, Whitbread has secured more than 500 Premier Inn rooms in Dublin city centre through three hotels - at South Great George's Street, Jervis Street and Castleforbes Business Park. The hotels are scheduled to open from early 2021.

After growing in Dublin and Cork, Whitbread says it sees the potential for Premier Inn hotels in other cities including Galway, Limerick and Killarney. The company is seeking sites as freeholds, leaseholds, office to hotel conversions, as well as going concern purchases.
Premier Inn's first site in Cork is within a five-minute walk of Cork's new events arena currently under construction, next door to the College of Commerce and across the river from the internationally renowned School of Music and the new University of Cork Business School, due to open in 2023. The hotel will be delivered alongside the conversion into offices of three protected buildings currently on the site.
