Dublin, March 2017 – CBRE have confirmed their instructions to offer a centrally located Dublin city hotel to the market with the announcement that The Abbey Hotel, 52 Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1 is for sale by private treaty.

The Abbey Hotel is a boutique 21 bedroom hotel, bar and restaurant centrally located in the heart of Dublin, just off O’Connell Street and close to the GPO. The property is convenient to a host of tourist attractions including the vibrant Temple Bar area, Trinity College, Dublin Castle and the Guinness Storehouse.

Ideal as a shopping base, The Abbey Hotel is just 300m from the Henry Street / Mary Street shopping precinct while the Grafton Street shopping area is a short walk away. The hotel is also close to many theatres, concert venues and sporting stadia and to a host of business generators including the IFSC, Convention Centre and the Four Courts.

The hotel is well served by public transport with LUAS running directly outside its door. The new Cross City Luas will further enhance accessibility.

The hotel is also located in an area of Dublin earmarked for many new hotel and retail developments which will further enhance the appeal of the location.

According to John Ryan the sale of The Abbey Hotel offers the discerning hotelier an opportunity to acquire a well-positioned hotel property which is presented in turn key condition. At present a very satisfactory level of turnover is generated in the premises but there is further upside potential to grow the business particularly in the bar and restaurant areas. In addition, there is the potential to expand the accommodation with 12 extra bedrooms (subject to the necessary planning permission). John Ryan believes the sale of The Abbey Hotel is likely to appeal to a host of purchasers including investors, hoteliers, hostel operators, publicans, nightclub operators and restaurateurs.
