Metropole hotel in Cork to get €50m revamp

Metropole hotel in Cork to get €50m revamp

One of Cork’s most historic hotels, the Metropole, is set to get a €50 million investment that will double its rooms tally, add shops at ground level and see the construction of another three-star hotel to be called The M.

The two linked hotels will have 400 bedrooms, making “The Met” the city’s largest guest complex. Planning permission is to be sought for large-scale refurbishment and replacement/demolition of 20th-century wings at the Metropole on MacCurtain St and running back to St Patrick’s Quay.

All of the original 1897 Victorian/Edwardian Arthur Hill design sections on MacCurtain St, which date to 1897 and 1910, will be retained and enhanced. The investment is planned by owners Trigon Hotels Ltd, which bought the Metropole in 2015 for €5 million. It acquired the adjacent PJ O’Hea garage site across the narrow Harley St for €1.35 million — to be the site for the new M hotel.

The two hotels will be linked above Harley St by two elevated bridges, one at roof/sixth-floor level. Features include an internal winter garden or atrium and a rooftop function room.
