The History

In 1817 Thomas Gresham purchased 21-22 Sackville Street and commenced business there as a hotel. Thomas Gresham is a fascinating person. He was a foundling child, abandoned on the steps of the Royal Exchange, Sir Thomas Gresham a famous merchant-politician in the Elizabethan era. Thomas Gresham came to Ireland, and as a very young man obtained employment in the service of William Beauman of Rutland Square, Dublin. After some time, and while still comparatively young, he became butler to this family. This was an important position in the Georgian household, with its complicated domestic structure. In 1817, Thomas Gresham left William Beauman’s household to open a hotel in nearby Sackville Street. How he acquired the capital to undertake an enterprise of this kind is not known. Today, Gresham Hotels is now a privately owned company consisting of four properties in Brussels, Cork, Dublin and Hamburg. Following a major refurbishment in 2013, The Gresham Hotel Dublin, is swiftly progressing into the 21st century, building on our long established reputation for superior service and excellent facilities.
