      Bridgestones verdict on Ireland’s new hotels….” they have mushroomed without a thought to good taste or subtley”….John Mc Kenna is spot on.

      I thought of the Inchydoney Island Hotel when I read this.

      A massive kip in a beauty spot. Don’t know how it got planning permission.

      The building and apartments beside have a creepy familiarity about them. They look like half the one-off houses built in the last 10 years around the country, only bigger. Even the interiors, the coving , the skirting boards, the carpets, the bathrooms all seem to come from the same builders provider. A lot of pale yellow paint used.

      Swimming pool’s nice though.

      edit: here’s a photo

      This is where FF had that famous “THINK IN” back in 2004.

      The key point in this, as was pointed out in the Irish Times article yesterday, is tax incentives. And, by extension, under-resourced planning authorities that were unable to assess adequately many of the proposals due to lack of staff.
      But who grants the stars? Is it just a case of ticking enough boxes on a sheet to get the required classification? “Does it look like one of Saddam’s/Ceausescu’s palaces? Slap on an extra star!”
