The Dalata story

We bring the heart of hospitality to every hotel we own and operate. We see our growth and expansion plans as a way of spreading our unique way of caring for our guests further around the world, bringing better experiences to more people. Currently the Dalata difference can be felt at each of our 54 hotels in Ireland, the UK, Germany & the Netherlands, and we’ll keep expanding this further, focusing on key UK cities, Dublin and continental Europe.
