New Boutiqe hotel at Pery Square / Barrington Street

Just a few months after the re-opening of the George, Limerick is to get another “boutique” hotel, this time one of the Georgians on Pery Square is to be renovated to provide a luxury hotel and health spa. The hotel market in Limerick has exploded in recent years, 5 opened last year and 2007 should see the Hilton and the Marriott opening their doors!

The Property at the corner of Pery Square & Barrington Street was used as a hostel until a couple of years ago, it was built by the Pery tontine company in 1838 as a result of a fairly interesting scheme!

using a financial device, called a Tontine, which was quite common then but is now banned. There were 89 shares which cost £120 per share. Each share had a life nominee and while this nominee was alive, the shareowner received dividends from the rental income earned by the company. But as each life died so also did the share it represented. The process continued until only six shares were left. The owners of these six shares got a house each.
