Aparthotel operator Staycity opens new property in Dublin

Dublin

The Mark Street opening comes after the launch of new properties in Bordeaux, Heidelberg, Manchester, and London’s Aldgate and Paddington areas

Aparthotel operator Staycity is opening a new property on Mark Street in Dublin on January 1, 2022.

The 142-apartment property is a short walk from Trinity College and close to Pearse Street Rail station, Grafton Street and the National Gallery.

It offers modern studio and one-bed apartments with fully equipped kitchens/kitchenettes, along with living and dining spaces. The property also includes a 24-hour reception, fitness centre, on-site guest laundry and Staycafe selling breakfast, snacks and drinks.

Staycity CEO and co-founder Tom Walsh commented: This property has a fantastic location in the heart of the city. We have seen a huge surge in demand for aparthotels, amongst both business and leisure travellers who appreciate the home-from-home environment and freedom to self-cater but with additional facilities such as the gym, reception and cafe.

Staycity currently operates three other properties in Dublin located in Christchurch, Saint Augustine Street and Dublin Castle, with another aparthotel set to join the city’s Liberties area on January 31.

Earlier, Staycity had revealed that UK occupancy levels have been ‘climbing as pent-up demand for domestic travel grows’ in the wake of the gradual lifting of the UK’s Covid lockdown restrictions.

The Mark Street opening comes after the launch of new properties in Bordeaux, Heidelberg, Manchester, and London’s Aldgate and Paddington areas.

Staycity is pursuing an ambitious growth agenda over the next 18 months, with a further nine properties due to open in the remainder of 2021 and 2022.

By the end of spring 2022 the Dublin-based group will operate 5,000 apartments across its Staycity Aparthotels and premium Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity brands.

Staycity recently announced ambitious plans to open ten properties next year following a £30 million loan from OakNorth Bank.
