Jurys Inns open its FIRST Hotel in Mainland Europe
Jurys Inns are celebrating the opening of its first hotel in mainland Europe in Prague today. The Irish owned hotel will open its doors to locals and visitors to this great city. Holidaying in Eastern Europe has proven very popular with Irish people in recent years, proving to be an accessible, affordable location steeped in history and culture. Jurys Inn Prague now offers an inexpensive accommodation offer without having to compromise on comfort, style or a central location. The hotel will employ 60 people, bringing the total number of employees in the Jurys Inns Group to over 2,000, due to the recent expansion.
The 214 bedroom hotel is located within short walking distance of Prague’s old historic town centre and other key attractions such as the romantic Charles Bridge and the idyllic Prague Castle. If you are thinking of an Autumn Break, Prague is an ideal spot, offering the perfect mix of culture, shopping and nightlife while still offering great value for money for Irish consumers.
Jurys Inns Chief Executive, John Brennan, said: “We are very excited about the opening of our first hotel on mainland Europe. The hotel in Prague will very much reflect the Jurys Inns trademark offering of a convenient city centre location, best value for money and high levels of service. The Czech capital situated on the River Vltava has proven a very popular spot for Irish visitors and our aim is for Jurys Inn to become the first choice for Irish visitors to stay when visiting Prague.
Jurys Inns Group has in recent months undertaken an ambitious expansion programme in the UK, which has already seen it open five new hotels this year in Sheffield, Watford, Exeter, Swindon and Derby. Jurys Inns will also open a new hotel in Aberdeen on 4th September, the Group’s first Scottish hotel outside of Glasgow and Edinburgh, and a further four openings are scheduled next year in Portsmouth, Glasgow, Newcastle and Bradford.Press Enquiries:
