Dynamic X Premier Inn, Cork


The city of Cork is about to witness the grand opening of its newest hotel, the Premier Inn, following an extensive €29 million refurbishment of the historic Moore's Hotel building. This project, led by the renowned Elliot Group, promises to bring a fresh and innovative approach to hospitality in Cork. Dynamic Design Consultants were proud to offer M&E consultancy services throughout the project. 


The Revitalisation Journey

The revitalisation of the old Moore's Hotel building has been a long-awaited endeavor. Construction on the site commenced in September 2021, and after years of meticulous planning and hard work, the layers of scaffolding and construction hoarding have finally been removed, revealing the stunning transformation. The new Premier Inn is set to open its doors to guests by January 2024, offering a total of 187 well-appointed bedrooms.

Dynamic Design Consultants integrated state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems into the Premier Inn Cork. These systems are designed to provide optimal comfort and energy efficiency for guests. Through careful planning and implementation, we have ensured that every aspect of the hotel's M&E infrastructure is top of top quality.


Room for Every Guest

Premier Inn Cork boasts a diverse range of room options to cater to the needs of every guest. The hotel offers double, twin, family, and accessible rooms, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a comfortable stay. The layout and design of these rooms have been carefully considered to provide maximum comfort and convenience, with Dynamic Design Consultants ensuring that the mechanical and electrical systems seamlessly integrate into the overall guest experience.


Dining and Entertainment

The Premier Inn Cork is not only a place to rest and rejuvenate but also a destination for exceptional dining and entertainment. The hotel features a new restaurant called the Thyme Bar and Grill, where guests can indulge in delicious meals prepared with locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant's mechanical and electrical systems support the smooth operation of the kitchen and provide a comfortable dining experience for guests.

Ideal Location for Exploring Cork

Situated right beside the River Lee, the Premier Inn Cork offers guests the perfect base for exploring the vibrant city. The hotel's prime location allows guests to take a leisurely 10-minute walk to The English Market, a renowned culinary destination. Additionally, the hotel is conveniently located near historic attractions like the Cork City Gaol and Blackrock Castle, providing guests with ample opportunities for exploration. For those looking to indulge in some retail therapy, the Merchants Quay Shopping Centre is just a stone's throw away. And no visit to Cork would be complete without experiencing the famous Blarney Stone, which is just a short 20-minute drive from the hotel.
