As one of Cork's newest hotels located in the city's rapidly developing North Docks, The Dean Hotel opened for a brief period in November to strong bookings for both rooms and its restaurants before Level 5 restrictions were introduced on Christmas Eve.
Bryan Davern, head of Hotels, Press Up Hospitality Group, discussed the location's story so far, "In November 2020, we opened The Dean Cork, a really exciting property in the heart of the Cork city, and the response was amazing."
"While we were forced to shut in mid-December due to restrictions, it gave us a real sense of what to expect with a full opening schedule. Things have picked up right where they left off with bookings and food reservations strong with tourist and locals alike."
The 114-bed hotel overlooks Kent Railway station and its distinctive black cladding on the building's facade has made it one of the most significant additions to the Cork skyline in recent years.
This week, Press Up also announced the opening of three outlets of its Power Gym chain.
The gym's first three sites in The Mayson on North Wall Quay in Dublin, The Dean Dublin, and The Dean Cork are the first to open, with more locations to be announced in the coming months.
Press Up said Power Gym aims to create 92 jobs over the next year.
Press Up is a collection of hotels, bars, restaurants, cinemas, venues, and fitness clubs across the country.
The group now includes more than 35 venues and has recently expanded into the UK with two new locations.
