"Burlo" Closes

Five star hotel, The Burlington on Leeson Street, had it's last guest check out yesterday, regarded as one of Dublins finest it will be missed, in particular by Taxi drivers as the rank outside was one of the busiest. It's Christmas party nights each year were always a good earner.
Seemingly the older hotels cannot compete with the newer versions as they are not economically viable, requiring more staff to run, and also have higher utility bills.
The staff had a bit of a send off party last night and all seemed genuinely sad at its demise.
The property has been purchased by developer Mc Namara and rumours abound that they may well open it as a hotel in the short term .....while they await planning permissions.
