The Gateway Hotel Dundalk Is Officially Launched

The O’Callaghan Family Group has officially launched The Gateway Hotel Dundalk, the new name for The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Dundalk.

The fourteen storey hotel has 129 guest bedrooms and suites, conference facilities including The Hamilton Suite which accommodates over 300 guests and a further eight boardrooms.

The new owners are planning a refurbishment programme of the hotel over the next few years, to further enhance the guest experience at The Gateway Hotel.

Business As Usual

The O’Callaghan Family Group are also the proprietors of the nearby Fairways Hotel in Dundalk. The Gateway Hotel will be managed by The iNUA Collection hotel group, who also manage The Fairways Hotel.

All the existing management and employees who were previously employed by The Crowne Plaza Dundalk will continue to work at The Gateway Hotel.


The iNua Collection management have confirmed that all future bookings made with the hotel will be honoured and that it will be very much 'business as usual' at the hotel.
