Offaly and Cork hotel opportunities
Two hotel development properties have come to the market -- one in Co Offaly and the other in Skibbereen, Cork.
Strawberry Hill is an attractively restored seven bedroom property on 52 acres near Cloghan village, Co Offaly. It has a €2.5m price tag.
Its vendor, Gerry Brennan of Ballymount Fireplaces and Marbleworks, formulated plans to extend the property into a hotel and spa. Agent Orla Gleeson & Associates say these plans are available for prospective purchasers.
The othe site,in Skibbereen, extends to six acres on the western edge of the town. It has full planning permission for a 100 bedroom hotel to include restaurants, bars, and spa. The agents, Savills, report the asking price has been reduced to €500,000. Savills' Denis O'Donoghue says there is an opening for a hotel in the area as Skibbereen has only one 30 bedroom hotel.
