Mayo hoteliers Trish Egan and PJ Staide are expanding their hospitality business with the purchase of the Gateway Hotel in Swinford, Co Mayo for a sum understood to be more than the €1m quoted by agents CBRE.

The duo already own Cill Aodáin Court Hotel in nearby Kiltimagh.

The Gateway, a three-star hotel prominently located on the Main Street in Swinford, was sold by Charles and Cathal Kelly.

Cathal operated The Gateway for almost 20 years during which time he developed the property into a modern hotel. He is moving on to concentrate on other interests.

The hotel accommodates 22 modern bedrooms, the 50-seater ‘Flying Doc Bar’, the 50-seater ‘The Front’ dining room and a function room with a 200-seat capacity.

At the rear is a car park with space for about 20 cars. The sale also included an adjoining two-storey building extending to 90 sqm which could facilitate expansion of the hotel.

The Gateway Hotel is one of the closest hotels to Ireland West Airport in Knock, Co Mayo, which is located only 12km away.

The hotel is also a meeting place for locals and tourists.

A market town, Swinford is on the N26 which links the nearby N5 national route to Ballina and other points in the west of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. The town is also situated on a tributary of the River Moy which is renowned for its fishing waters, as is the nearby Callow Lakes.

John Hughes, of CBRE Hotels handled the sale for the Kellys.
