Bewley's Hotels are now mobile!

New web app means that Bewley's Hotels are now more accessible than ever – now available, in fact, in your pocket!

The Moran and Bewley's Hotel Group has become the first major hotel group in Ireland and the UK to embrace mobile booking technology. Using advanced mobile webapp technology developed by Bookassist, Bewley's Hotels in Dublin, Leeds and Manchester, and Moran Hotels in London, Dublin and Cork are now bookable on iPhone and Android platforms for customers on the go.

Visit or using an iPhone or Android device, and the mobile technology automatically redirects you to the mobile webapp version of the hotel group's website. Visitors using their mobiles to look at individual websites for each hotel are similarly redirected.

The beauty of this system is that there is no app to download, no app store to visit, and no irritating extra steps or barriers in the way for mobile users. The process is seamless and ensures customers get the best experience possible on every platform – whether browsing or booking from their desktop or on their mobile.When you arrive at the site on your Iphone or similar device, you can add the site to your homepage and a Bewley's Hotels icon will pop up meaning next time you want to book all you have to do is touch your screen!

Mobile web browsers on the Bewley's Hotels site and the Moran Hotels site get the full web experience – hotel description, photo gallery, customer reviews, mapping and routing information – as well as a complete booking process in the new, multilingual webapp system. A simple, clear and easily-navigable layout, custom made for mobile, is the key to how clean and straightforward the process is, and will no doubt increase the already significant level of mobile traffic to the Bewley’s Hotels site.

"At Moran and Bewley's Hotels we do already attract plenty of mobile business,” says Tracy Moran, the group’s Communications Director, “so much so that we have taken this step to meet the very real need from many of our guests for a sophisticated but useful mobile service. We do like to pride ourselves on being ahead of the pack when it comes to meeting our customers’ needs, and we expect our new app will be a big success for us, as well as simplifying various processes for our mobile-reliant guests.”

Visit or on your iPhone or Android phone to get the full mobile experience.

Enjoying some food!

If you attended 'Kitchen' last week i'm sure you will agree that it was a great event! There was a great turnout with over 500 visitors mixed between foodies, press, families, hotel guests and local residents.

Face Painting

There was plenty to keep the kiddies occupied such as face painting, not to mention the constant queue for the smoothie stall!
Paula Mee & Brain Mc Carthy
There was a great Carnival atmosphere with visitors enjoying the fine evening, sipping wine outside and listening to Cafe Orchestra.

Nutritionist, Paula Mee gave very interesting talks on the importance of healthy family eating to combat the rise in obesity, heart disease and diabetes in Ireland. In the section on sustainable fish, Paula highlighted the benefits of including more fish in our diet and gave some great advice and tips on 'Eating Out & Staying Trim'. In a later discussion Paula highlighted that many children have never actually seen a carrot and as far as they are concerned they grow in 'batons'!

There were 10 key suppliers present for the duration of the event, all of whom were very generous with their samplings. Included in these samplings were:
silver hill duck | smoked seafood | lamb cutlets | mini beef & yorkshire puds | free range chicken | delicious desserts | seasonal berries | killowen yoghurt.
Food tastings from the stage included (brasserie hotpot | baked apple & berries | mackerel on brown bread | pollack n chips | chicken & pesto risotto | homemade veg soup

At the fruit and vegetable stand, one of the main items of interest was actually a brussel sprout tree. Did you know they grew on trees? Paula remarked upon this herself talking about how kids in the states particularly are not privy to fresh produce enough and many wouldn't recognise a carrot in its original form as they only see them as 'batons' coming out of packets....true!

The main lesson that guests left with was that we should be sourcing and buying more fresh Irish produce. Not only does it taste better but it helps our economy- which could do with all the help it can get right now! This event has certainly given me 'food for thought', i am now checking where my meat and two veg is coming from and will be making a conscious decision from now on to buy Irish where possible.
Check out our pictures from the event!

Bon Appetite!

    Fantastic Father's Day Gift

    Don't forget that this Sunday the 20th of June is Father's Day. It is always a tough gift to buy as there are only so many 'black and decker' drills, socks and golf balls a Dad can have!

    Why not try something a little different this year. We always get the pampering gifts for Mum, but sometimes Dad needs some time out too.

    Why not book your Dad an overnight stay in any one of the Bewley's Hotels? Rates are from €/£69. Gift vouchers are also available and can be used in any of our 6 hotels in Dublin, Leeds and Manchester.

    Each hotel is surrounded by so much to do.For example in Leopardstown, Newlands Cross and Dublin Airport there are an ambundance of premium golf courses close by. Bewley's Hotel Ballsbridge has the RDS right next door. Bewley's Hotel Leeds is beside Elland Road and Manchester Airport is close to Old Trafford.

    Another nice idea is a meal in The Brasserie. There offers a relaxed atmosphere and there are plenty of 'Dad' friendly options such as Rib Eye Steak. Our bars offer the perfect pint too.
    To book your Dad the perfect Fathers Day Gift check out or for facebook and twitter followers why not use your discount log in and get €/£10 off the best available rate.

    Enjoy & Happy Father's Day!

    Bank Holiday Breaks Dublin Manchester and Leeds

    Can you believe that the next bank holiday weekend is a mere 3 weeks away! I don't know about you but i love to get away during the summer bank holiday, it feels like a mini holiday!
    It's all very well to go away for a long weekend but there are two important factors when choosing where to spend your bank holiday weekend. Firstly, 'Location' is key, and secondly, 'Activities' are crucial, you need to have something to do.
    In Bewley's Hotels we have properties in prime city locations such as Dublin, Manchester and Leeds. All are very popular destinations for city breaks and accessible by rail, air, road and port.
    In Dublin, Bewley's Hotels have created the ultimate package known as 'Staycations'. There are packages that include your accommodation and a trip to Dublin Zoo, Dublin City Sightseeing Bus Tour or the National Aquatic Centre. Your tickets are pre booked allowing an easy bank holiday break!
    If you are planning to get away this June Bank Holiday Weekend, then check out our bank holiday hotel breaks!

    Fancy A 99 with Sprinkles and a Flake?

    Well we can do a 99 but the sprinkles and the flake is-2 nights and 2 adults for only €99!
    Do you want to know what the cherry on top is?????
    It's for the Weekend!!! Not just midweek.
    Yes you read correct €99 for 2 nights, 2 adults at a weekend!

    We appreciate that it is virtually impossible to get a good deal at the weekend in Dublin so yet again came up trumps and rolled out yet a another value promise. I think that deserves a pat on the back.

    So here we are on day one of our Blog! In Bewley's Hotels we have so much news that facebook and twitter can't handle it so we need extra space to tell you all everything.
    We have launched a new social media initiative where our social supporters are rewarded with the best deals possible. To address this we have built a loyalty system that ensures each Bewley's Hotels Fan, Follower, Deputy Mayor and Campaigner gets at least €10/£10 off the best available rate.
    On some nights we sell our rooms for £59/€59 which is a competitive enough rate but with that added incentive of €10/£10 off it will provide a nice saving!
    We also have a stream of competitions and freebee's for all social media supporters and to avail of these competitions you must sign up to our facebook and twitter pages.

    We would love some feedback or if you have any questions about how to become a fan or follower please leave a comment and we will get back to you.
