Dalata to operate GAA hotel

Dalata has struck a deal with the GAA to operate a new 200-bedroom hotel beside Croke Park on lands acquired from the Catholic church.The hotel, which will be built on the grounds of a seminary at Clonliffe College, will operate under Dalata’s Maldron brand. It is believed the hotel will be run by  Dalata on a long lease of possibly up to three decmaldronades.

The hotel will be developed by the GAA, although the organisation is believed to be considering syndicating the project to other investors in the future. The commitment of the country’s largest hotel company to the project on a long covenant is likely to make it a much more valuable proposition for syndication.


Planning permission for the project has yet to be sought, and a builder has also not yet been selected, although construction company McAleer & Rushe, which builds many of the new hotels run by Dalata, is in the running.
The new-build hotel is part of a major development planned for more than 30 acres at Clonliffe College which has been purchased by the GAA for up to €95 million.
