Dalata was founded in June 2007 by Pat McCann with investment from TVC Holdings plc and clients of Davy Property Holdings.
In March 2009 Dalata Management Services (“DMS”) was set up in order to provide hotel operational and management expertise to receivers and banks. DMS provides a complete hotel management solution.
Dalata Hotel Group Public Limited Company was incorporated in January 2014. We launched our Initial Public Offering (IPO) in March 2014, trading on the Enterprise Securities Market (ESM) of the Irish Stock Exchange and on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange.
In June 2016, the entire issued ordinary shares in the capital of Dalata were admitted to the primary listing segment of the Official List of the Irish Stock Exchange and the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority of the UK by way of a standard listing, and to trading on the Irish Stock Exchange’s and the London Stock Exchange’s respective main markets for listed securities.
We are Ireland’s largest hotel operator, with a current portfolio of 40 hotels (owned, leased and/or managed). We successfully operate the Clayton and Maldron Hotel brands throughout Ireland & the UK, as well as managing a portfolio of Partner Hotels.
The company offers significant advantages due to the scale of existing operations, its combined management experience and its knowledge of the industry. Dalata has the infrastructure capability and expertise to operate a large portfolio of hotels.
Since the initial admission, the Group has acquired 28 hotels, located in Ireland and the UK. In addition to acquiring properties Dalata will continue to seek further opportunities to lease and manage hotels.
