Dublin could be gearing up for a new boutique hotel after hospitality giant Beannchor group revealed plans to bring its Bullitt hotel concept to the city.
The group opened its first Bullitt hotel in Belfast in October last year, with the company said to be ‘happy’ with how trading had gone so far.
Beannchor, which also owns the five-star Merchant Hotel in Belfast, unveiled the Bullitt Hotel in Belfast’s Church Lane last year.
Its ground floor features a wide-open lobby, bar and restaurant area and features and artwork in the hotel were inspired by actor Steve McQueen’s 1968 film Bullitt.
Now a site on Chapel Street in Dublin has been identified as the potential location for expansion.
The new hotel would have the same theme and style as its Belfast sister and will be home to 100 bedrooms and ground floor eateries.
Bullitt Hotel is the latest addition to the wide hospitality interests of the Beannchor Group.
It owns a large number of bars which are leased out to tenants, as well as operating its own pubs in Belfast.
It also owns the Little Wing chain of pizzerias.
