      Jurys Doyle to close two Dublin hotels


      09 June 2005 12:39
      The hotel chain, Jurys Doyle, has announced it is closing two of its three hotels in Ballsbridge in Dublin because they are not doing as well as expected.

      In a statement, the company said staff could accept voluntary redundancy or redeployment to other hotels in the group.

      The company is to retain the site where the five-star Berkeley Court Hotel currently stands in order to redevelop a new four-star hotel.

      Five acres of land containing Jurys Ballsbridge Hotel and The Towers will be put out to tender.

      The company’s Chief Executive, Pat McCann, said the properties were not performing to the required levels.

      He said the aim was to ‘unlock the value of a major asset’ while continuing to have a hotel presence in Ballsbridge.

      More than 400 full-time staff are currently employed at Jurys Ballsbridge Hotel and The Berkeley Court.

      It comes a day after the company rejected a second takeover approach from the Precinct consortium.

      The company said all three hotels would operate as normal for the foreseeable future.

      The deadline for the tender process is 18 July, while the company points out that the subsequent planning process may take some time. Ends

      Great to see the former Inter-Continetal block going, any thoughts on what will replace it?

      Hopefully, Jurys and the other developer will level both buildings and start from scratch. Both sites are huge.
      Can’t see anything but residential and a very small amount of commercial going in at the Towers site.
      A one-bed apartment there would probably command E450,000 at a minimum.

      Are we likely to go from one extreme to the other on the Berkelely site with another Four Seasons going up?
      Jurys Doyle have hardly proved themselves in hotel design thus far.

      Perhaps this will be a flagship project?…

      As for the amount of news reporters saying Burkeley instead of Barkelely :rolleyes:
