Jurys Inn Irish revamps finished

After an investment worth €9 million, Jurys Inn has now finished revamping each of its Irish locations. Five hotels have been transformed in all, including three in Dublin, one in Cork and one in Galway.

"We’re delighted to have completed the redesign and refurbishment of all our Irish hotels, which is part of our constant drive to invest in and enhance our brand and customer experience," commented CEO John Brennan.

All of the 937 guest rooms within Jurys Inn's Irish hotels now feature fresh wall coverings, bathrooms and furnishings. Meanwhile, every hotel has a refreshed, bar, restaurant and lobby. Every new bedroom includes a flat screen television and chrome-power-shower-fitted bathroom.

As well as "an exciting new look" hotel enhancements include features like free guest Wi-Fi for everyone staying at them as well as enhanced drink and food offerings, said Mr Brennan.

Meeting facilities have been updated at Jurys Inn Cork and Jurys Inn Custom House.

The changes to the three Dublin hotels cost more than €5.8 million, with €1.8 million pumped into the Galway transformation and €1.6 million into the Cork revamp.

"Excellent customer service and providing a great hotel experience are at the heart of everything that we do so we are thrilled to be able to build on this and unveil our new look Irish hotels," explained Mr Brennan.

He said that customer reaction thus far has been great, resulting in a significant hike for corporate and leisure bookings.

More widely, the group has 30 hotels based in Ireland and the United Kingdom as well as the Czech Republic. There are in excess of 7,000 rooms in these venues, overall, and each employs numerous people in hospitality jobs.

Last month, staff from the group took part in a Charity Challenge to raise cash for good causes.
