Ireland: Red Carnation Hotel Group is set to convert Hatch Hall in Dublin into its third hotel in Ireland.
The listed property, near near St Stephen’s Green, will be converted in to a five-star hotel. The building dates back to 1913 and former uses include a hall of residence for UCD students. It has been used by the Department of Justice as a direct provision centre for more than a decade, but will now undergo a renovation.
The 18-strong Red Carnation currently owns and operates Ashford Castle and The Lodge at Ashford Castle in Ireland. It acquired Ashford Castle out of receivership for €20 million in 2013 and has since invested more than €75 million into its extensive renovation
