A visit to the xcarett hotel is in the cards for Ireland
- by admin
The Irish Government is considering the option of offering accommodation at the xcCarett hotel in Dublin, which has been a popular destination for the UK tourist since the mid-1970s.
The Government has been asked by the hotel operator to consider a deal to open the hotel to foreign nationals who want to stay in Ireland but would prefer to stay with family members.
The Foreign Office said the Government is “considering” the options with regard to allowing Irish citizens to stay at the hotel.
It said the Foreign Office is aware of the offer being made and has advised that the offer should be considered.
The foreign secretary has said that the Government will make the final decision about allowing Irish nationals to stay and will then assess whether or not it is in Ireland’s national interest.
Irish Foreign Minister Charlie Flanagan said that if the offer was accepted, he would be very pleased to make it to Dublin.
He said that, with a decision to be made soon, there would be no need for a second referendum.
Mr Flanagan has said in recent days that he does not believe there is a strong case for a referendum in Ireland on Brexit, given that the majority of the population wants a new relationship with the UK.
Mr Flanigan said that any future decision to allow foreign nationals to remain in Ireland must not be made on the basis of any particular point of view.
He also said that Ireland’s relationship with Britain is an important part of the UK’s international reputation and that there is “no point of arguing with that”.
The Foreign Secretary has said he is “optimistic” that a new deal will be reached between the two countries.
He has said Ireland would remain “the most pro-EU country in the European Union” in terms of the relationship with its neighbours.
The EU has repeatedly rejected the view that the UK could negotiate a “soft” divorce deal with the EU.
Ireland and the EU have reached a new, €9bn ($11bn) trade deal with Britain, but it is not clear whether the two sides will continue to have any kind of relationship after Brexit.
In a statement, the Foreign Affairs Minister has said the government is still considering the offer and will make a decision on whether or “not to proceed”. Mr Dáil Éireann was told today that a decision will be made within a week on whether to accept the offer.
