Were these tax incentives the main driving force behind the Hotel boom in the city for the last year or two?
Well that and the fact that there was a market there for them, there was a huge under supply of hotel rooms in the city centre especially, until very recently. Of course many hotels were refurbished and in the case of the George and the Hilton, hotels already existed on the sites in the 1st place.
In the last 4 -5 years these are the new or not so new hotels that have come on stream in Limerick
Clarion Hotel 2002
Radisson SAS (Revamped Limerick Inn) 2003
Clarion Hotel Suites (re developed Ardhu Ryan) 2006
Quality Hotel 2006
George Boutique Hotel (re developed Royal George Hotel) 2006
Patrick Punches Hotel 2006
Hilton Hotel (on site of former Jurys) 2007
Marriott Hotel 2007
Absolute Hotel 2007
The former Glentworth hotel was refurbished in 2003/4, its now known as Pery’s Hotel.
Of course the most famous Limerick hotel of them all, Cruises hotel, was demolished in 1991 to make way for the Cruises street development!
