THE Castletroy Park Hotel is to undergo a major new development as it embarks on €6m expansion plan over the next 18 months.
Supermacs and Só Hotels owner Pat McDonagh, made the announcement this Monday in a plan that will see the size of the hotel increase by almost 50 per cent above its existing 107 bedrooms and executive suites.
The expansion will also see a new state of the art fitness and leisure facility and a corporate business hub developed. Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan, TD was in Limerick this Monday to announce the plans with Mr McDonagh.
The development will see €6million invested in the Limerick economy over the next 18 months and 110 jobs will be supported during the construction phase of the project. An additional 40 permanent jobs will be created in the Hotel itself. The project will generate an estimated €30million in the Limerick economy over the next 10 years.
Speaking of the city as a location for business Mr McDonagh said that few places in the country come near Limerick in terms of what it offers the corporate, leisure and sports tourism sectors.
“A recent study indicated that Limerick has overtaken Dublin in terms of job vacancy rate. The region is now a business hot spot and the physical infrastructure around the city is changing dramatically. There is a significant motorway network feeding the city plus an international airport in Shannon on our doorstep,” Mr McDonagh said.
