Sandymount Hotel was founded in 1955 by George & Roslaeen Loughran. Their son John now runs the hotel along with his own son Gerard. Family has always been at the centre of everything at Sandymount Hotel with everyone helping out to make it the 4-star hotel it is today. George and Rosaleen were always ahead of the curve in particular in 1960 when they were one of the first guesthouses to have central heating and one of the first to put in en-suite bathrooms. Before the pair handed over the hotel in 1988 the hotel consisted of five-period houses and 100 bedrooms. Today the hotel now has 189 bedrooms and went through substantial renovations of all bedrooms, Restaurant, Line Out Bar, meeting rooms and reception area which happily achieved a 4 Star rating for Sandymount Hotel. Among the many accolade and commendations the hotel has received, it has recently won the prestigious 'Europe's Leading Green Hotel 2017'.
