Property management company Ziggurat Student Living planned to have all of the new rooms at the property ready by mid-September.

But construction delays mean the deadline for entering their new homes has been extended by two weeks.

The €22.5m project involved turning the well-known hotel into a 166-room complex for students.

A spokesperson for the company confirmed that 58 single rooms will not be ready on schedule.

"There were unforeseen delays that had a knock-on effect, like the weather," a spokesperson said.

Students affected have each been given €200 by way of compensation and will have a month's rent refunded to them.
