An evening with Imelda May at Hyatt Centric

During the opening of Hyatt Centric, we hosted a media night in association with music event organisers Sofar Sounds. The intimate gig kicked off with emerging soul artist Soulé (aka Samantha Kay, from Balbriggan). Followed by Toucan, a ten-piece funk pop band ensemble who performed an upbeat, feel good set. After the success of the first two artists, the crowd waited in anticipation for the local girl Imelda May to step on stage. Such was the intimacy of the atmosphere you could almost hear a pin drop.

The building of Ireland’s First Hyatt Hotel

Throughout the construction phase of Ireland’s first Hyatt, we took the opportunity to record a time lapse of aspects of the hotel build. It was a great initiative and it is wonderful to reflect on the achievement of the entire design team. Little did we know that the project would unearth a 900 year old Viking Village many artefacts. The building commenced in September 2017 and the Hotel was eventually opened in October 2019.

Core Values

Since 1992, and the opening of Hodson Bay Hotel, the O’Sullivan family have invested in, and fostered a culture of “Respect”. Since then, across every department, across every level of employee and across all properties, this culture of Respect is practiced. It is based on three pillars, Respect for Customers, Respect for Local Community and Respect for Our People, and is the most important ingredient in Hodson Bay Group’s development. It is this culture which has fueled our core values of Loyalty, Passion, Excellence, Flexibility and Fun.
