It was announced today that the d hotel in Drogheda has been bought from Edward Holdings for an undisclosed sum by Gleann Hospitality Limited. The transaction was finalised on the 13th of January 2017 and plans are already underway to renovate and revamp key areas in the property, including the bar and restaurant, before the summer of this year.
Built in 2007, the waterfront hotel offers 104 bedrooms with views over the river and town.
The transfer and future business of the property will be overseen by Alan Murtagh previously of Louis FitzGerald Group while the day to day running of the business will be managed the long-standing GM, Ciaran O’Donovan whose previous experience includes the management of Bewleys Hotel Dublin and the Red Cow Moran Hotel.
The business has seen a strong uptake in the corporate and wedding market in the past year counting businesses such as Coca Cola, RCSI and Harvest Brewing as valued customers.
Commenting on future plans for the d hotel, Owner Alan Murtagh said, “The d hotel is already trading at a high level and generating strong international and domestic business. That said, we want to offer our guests a higher standard in food and beverage. As a result, we plan to undertake a complete rebrand and renovation of the current restaurant and bar, making full use of the beautiful riverside terrace by the time the warm weather hits.”
