About Us

The Red Cow Moran Hotel is owned and operated by the Moran Family. Built in 1996 by the head of the Family; Tom Moran, the Red Cow has grown and developed over the years into one of Dublin's most famous landmark hotels.

In 2016 it saw the addition of a seven-story extension with 152 additional bedrooms and the introduction of Tom’s Table Restaurant and the Link Lounge Coffee Dock. In 2019 two additional floors were added which included 21 superior Winter garden bedrooms and four bespoke apartments. The Red Cow Moran Hotel now boasts over 300 bedrooms including suites and apartments. In the Summer of 2020, we converted the Courtyard garden into the Atrium Restaurant and Bar.

The Moran Family are a team with a reputation for success; recognised as experts in the Hospitality industry with a track record for delivering and exceeding expectations. The family collectively known as ‘Moran Hospitality’ is made up of Tom Moran, the Principal, Tommy, Karen, Tracey, and Michael.


Having operated some of the most successful Public Houses in Dublin - which stemmed from their initial purchase of the renowned Red Cow INN back in 1988 - Tom and his wife Sheila opened their first Moran Hotel in 1996. Over the course of the next 10 years, they added 3 more Moran Hotels and in 2008 the purchase of Bewley’s Hotels brought the combined portfolio of Moran & Bewley’s Hotels up to 10 hotels and 2 public houses; all located in prime locations across Ireland and the UK and operated under two distinct brands. 

Between 2008 and 2014 Tom and the family steered the group through the rollercoaster of the recession. In 2014 the family sold nine of the hotels, retaining the Red Cow Moran Hotel. 

Moran Hospitality have seen and done it all. We have years of expertise gained from building, redeveloping and operating hotels and public houses along with first-hand experience at group restructuring followed by a sale process.
