Ramada opens first hotel in Ireland

Wyndham Hotel Group is opening its first Ramada Resort in Ireland, the 84-room Ramada Resort Dundalk. Part of a larger, previously announced collaboration with Lester Hotels Group, the resort is the fifth of 20 Ramada properties anticipated to open in the UK and Ireland over the next decade, all of which will be managed by Lester Hotels, one of Wyndham’s preferred management partners.

Ideally situated in the county town of County Louth—an important centre for local politics, history and culture—the resort offers visitors to Dundalk quality and welcoming accommodation options backed by the resources of a globally recognised brand. Leisure facilities include an indoor pool, gym and sauna as well as football pitches, making the resort an ideal retreat for families and groups visiting the historic town. Tourists will value Dundalk’s wealth of medieval churches, castles and places of interest, while corporate visitors will appreciate the resort’s offering of both standard and executive room types.

“Since the launch of our agreement with Lester Hotels Group in 2014, we’ve been working closely with their team to introduce five new Ramada properties to the UK and Ireland, in a range of locations from a countryside retreat in the Welsh countryside to premium budget hotel in suburban London” explained Dan Ruff, Wyndham Hotel Group’s president and managing director, EMEA. “Ramada has an impressive 60 year heritage which has seen expansion into more than 50 countries to offer travellers an unrivalled opportunity to experience local cultures, with the security and reassurance of a trusted and successful global brand. The Ramada Resort Dundalk is a great addition to this busy and culturally rich town, and we’re expecting it to be popular with families and business travellers alike due to its great leisure and F&B facilities.” 

All Ramada hotels in the UK and Ireland participate in Wyndham Rewards®, the simple-to-use, revolutionary loyalty programme from Wyndham Hotel Group that offers members a generous points earning structure along with a flat, free-night redemption rate – the first of its kind for a major hotel rewards programme.
