EasyHotel Acquires Site In Smithfield Of Dublin

Budget hotel operator easyHotel has acquired a site at the corner of Benburb Street and Wood Lane in Smithfield of Dublin 7 on which it intends to develop its first venue in the Republic of Ireland.

According to The Irish Independent, the site, for which easyHotel paid €9 million, currently has planning permission for a 96-bedroom hotel, but EasyHotel intends to apply for an expansion of the existing planning permission to allow for the development of a 130-bedroom property.

The company is expected to spend a total of €18 million on the hotel's development.

The news follows the announcement earlier in the summer that easyHotel is to open its first Northern Irish venue on Howard Street of Belfast in September of 2018.
