Former Transport Ship To Become Dublin Luxury Hotel
Former CIÉ transport ship the Naomh Eanna, which was acquired by Sam Field Corbett of Irish Ship & Barge Fabrication for €1 in 2015, is set be transformed into a five-star luxury accommodation berthed at Dublin’s Customs House Quay.
According to The Irish Times, €6.6 million in private funding has been secured to refit the ship as a 28-cabin hotel with a glazed restaurant on its deck.
Following its refit, the vessel will feature glass decks and 15-20 square metre cabins themed in a 1920s style of hardwood and brass.
