This study has revealed that hoteliers and developers are thinking about projects with as many as 1,355 new hotel bedrooms for delivery in Cork City comprising seven new builds and four existing hotels that are already at different stages of planning.
If even half of these hotels undergo completion it would be representing a nearly 30% rise on the current Cork hotel stock that stands at 2,297 bedrooms.
Five hotels have received a grant of planning permission for the addition of 360 bedrooms including the 165-bed Maldron Hotel situated on Beasley Street or South Mall that is scheduled to be completed in the year 2018. Also the Kingsley Hotel at Victoria Cross that has witnessed an approval of 63 additional bedrooms are on the list.
Amongst the hotels that have applied for planning permission are the M (The Metropole) on Harley’s Street and Horgan’s Quay (HQ) on Railway Street on the Lower Glanmire Road.
Also, the first floating hotel of Ireland has received a go-ahead.
And a hostel at Parnell Place and a four-star hotel at the site of the former Government buildings on Sullivan’s Quay are in the pre-planning stages.
