Makeover planned for Dublin hotel following acquisition

Dalata Hotel Group, the biggest hotel operator in Ireland, has entered into an agreement to acquire the Tara Towers Hotel on Merrion Road in Dublin.

The €13.1mln acquisition is expected to be completed this month and Dalata plans to renovate the three-star hotel into a modern four-star property. The 111-room hotel has conference facilities catering for up to 300 and a banqueting hall seating 180. Once renovated, it will be rebranded as a Maldron hotel. 

Dermot Crowley, deputy chief executive, business development and finance at Dalata, said: "We look forward to upgrading this property in a manner similar to the recent refurbishment of Maldron Pearse Street Hotel which is proving to be a very successful project for us."
