INVESTMENTS in the hotel sector in Cork has been ramped up in recent weeks ahead of the summer season.

The latest development has seen the completion of a €2 million bedroom refurbishment at Clayton Hotel Silver Springs.

Tánaiste Simon Coveney officially cut the ribbon at the hotel to mark the completion of the refurbishment.

All 109 bedrooms have been fully refurbished as part of a €8.5 million investment at the city centre property.

The completion comes just a week after four Cork city centre hotels launched a new campaign to highlight their partnership for visitors to Cork.

Sister hotels, Clayton Silver Springs and Clayton Cork City Hotels work closely with the Maldron Hotel South Mall and Maldron Hotel Shandon, and the group launched their ‘Destination Cork’ partnership campaign last week to ensure that visitors to Cork will always enjoy a great stay in the ‘Real Capital.’

Since the Clayton Silver Springs was acquired by the Dalata group in 2015, more than €8.5 million was invested in the refurbishment and renovation of the hotel’s ballroom, conferencing and events, lounge and gallery restaurant over the last four years.

The latest investment in the bedroom refurbishment completes the latest phase of refurbishment at the hotel.

Joe Kennedy, Clayton Silver Springs general manager, said:

“Now that the bedroom refurbishment is complete, we will continue to develop our offering to exceed the needs of our visitors and clients, and continue to provide our award-winning service for the business traveller.

“We expect to commence a new project on the Georgian mansion on site at the hotel, with additional investment, to provide a unique offering for private group accommodation in the coming years,” he added.
