Dalata chairman John Hennessy has announced that the hotel group's trading performance during the first four months of this year was in line with expectations and an improvement on its performance during the same period in 2018.
According to The Irish Times, revenue per available room (RevPAR) at the group's Dublin hotels rose 2.4% in the first quarter of 2019, while RevPAR rose 3% at its UK hotels.
The Irish Times quotes Hennessy as saying, "Dalata’s trading in the second quarter remains encouraging and the outlook for the first six months of the year is positive."
