Also any hotel in a nice area that isnt making much money can be redeveloped as housing if zoning allows. The Tara Tower hotel on the Rock Road in Blackrock Dublin seems to be boarded up and I have heard apartment blocks will be built on the site. It would have been ideal for a small halting site or a direct provision centre but this site faces the seafront so expensive homes will be built for wealthy downsizers.
No doubt some of the apartments will be snapped up by the local Council to provide social housing. Maybe Margaret Cash will get one of them.
