Company overview

Founded by Paul Fitzgerald and Sean O’Driscoll, Cliste Hospitality has a team that is second to none, with all the resources and experience required to navigate the business recovery cycle that lies ahead for Irish hotels, resorts, restaurants, bars and tourist destinations.
The roots of Cliste Hospitality go back to 2012 and to iNUA Partnership, an investment company and asset manager that was designed and created to identify investment opportunities coming out of the Irish and global financial crisis.
As iNUA Partnership grew in scale and operational leverage with nine substantial and diverse hotel assets under its management, Directors Paul Fitzgerald and Sean O’Driscoll undertook a successful buyout of the hotel management and operational platform of iNUA, creating Cliste Hospitality in 2019.
Paul and Sean completed their management buyout and moved forward with ambitious plans to grow the hotel asset management platform further. Following significant investment in that platform over the last 18 months in both key talent and systems, Cliste Hospitality is now ready to respond quickly, to meet the moment in the Irish hospitality sector in 2021 with its dynamic complex demands.

Beyond management and operating hotels we can deliver other bespoke consultancy services to turnaround or improve overall business performances to realise full commercial potential and ultimately increase the business’ long term value.
