The rumours of the lynch group closing the south court hotel all seem to have come from a small piece that the Limerick Post ran a couple of weeks ago, something that they were forced to publish an apology for the very next week!:o They suggested that the hotel would be sold and an apartment complex built on the site!, a bit of sloppy journalism really and not for the 1st time from that paper!
There isnt really anything to suggest that the hotel isnt performing well, its been extended twice since it opened and remains a popular location for conferences and the like, Lynch hotels also stated publicly that occupancy rates are consistently high!
Speaking of the George, i only recently saw it with the scaffolding removed and i was pretty shocked by the scale of it, looking up from as far away as the Patrick street side it completely dominates the O Connell street skyline, a full 3 floors taller than the neighbouring buildings! The first thing you notice is this huge wall of white cladding, totally out of proportion but then again you cant really blame the developers for this, its the planners who saw nothing wrong with it!:confused:
Hotel looks to be nearing completion although the retail space on O Connell street still has a bit to go!
