IHG opens Holiday Inn Dublin Airport

Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the opening of Holiday Inn Dublin Airport, in partnership with JMK Group.


Only a ten-minute drive or free shuttle from Dublin Airport T1 and T2 and a fifteen-minute drive to Dublin City Centre – the hotel is a great choice for those looking for a place to stay for a layover or to spend a night before an early flight.


The brand’s signature ‘Open Lobby’ has transformed the traditional hotel lobby format by combining the front desk, restaurant, bar, lounge and business centre into one open, cohesive space with a bright, contemporary feel, offering guests the ability to eat, relax, work, or have fun all in one area.


The hotel has 421 stylish, modern rooms showcasing Holiday Inn’s newest room design which creates a ‘Central Living’ space for guests to relax and work in if needed. The rooms include an in-room sofa bed providing a flexible space ideal for watching TV, socialising, and lounging. The accommodations also have a dedicated work area with a desk and multiple device connection options. All rooms are soundproof and fully air-conditioned and are fitted with a smart TV plus tea and coffee facilities.

As with all Holiday Inn hotels globally, Holiday Inn Dublin Airport welcomes families with the Kids Stay & Eat for Free offer, where children under the age of 12 stay and eat for free. The addition of the sofa bed also provides families with ample sleeping space, making the standard double room an ideal space for two adults and two children.

Garret O’Neill, General Manager at Holiday Inn Dublin Airport, said:

We are delighted to be the newest Holiday Inn opening this year in Ireland, and more broadly across Europe. We look forward to welcoming guests and loyal IHG Rewards members to the hotel, which has excellent access to Dublin Airport and our vibrant city.
