On Friday, July 20, 2018, Mr. Antonio Catalan, Founder and President of AC Hotels stopped in at the AC Dublin to view the property.

Orcun Turkay said the Mr. Catalan wanted to personally see the property after hearing so many positive things about the hotel and its staff, and that it was the best AC Hotel that he has seen so far! Mr. Catalan was in the United States to attend the opening of the new AC Times Square in New York City. The management had the opportunity to have dinner with him at VASO, the Rooftop Lounge.

Mr. Catalan said “the building of AC Hotels has been my sole passion and purpose for the past 15 years. It is a dream rooted in my childhood, largely spent helping my parents in our small family hotel in Navarre, Spain. My years spent wandering the kitchens, service corridors and common rooms of our family inn inspired me to dream of what hotels could be. I came to believe that hotels should be so much more than just lodging; They should serve as an escape, an oasis from the mundane. They have the opportunity to be something better than home, a place that removes the friction of normal life.”

The AC Dublin opened on September 26, 2017.

Congratulations to the entire staff!
