We’ve partnered the Irish and International hotel and hospitality sector for years. We’re the bank supporting the family run hotels, the big brands, the boutiques and the budget operators. In the last three years we’ve supported the sector with over €400m term funding to help our customers fulfil their growth plans.
The seasonality of your business can sometimes stretch your cash flow. High season or low, you need a bank that understands your financing requirements and that stays with you for the long term.
