Hotel Chain Expands into R.O.I.

County Antrim-based McKeever Hotel Group has announced its expansion into the Republic of Ireland with the purchase of the Letterkenny Court Hotel in Donegal.

A major renovation of the three star hotel has just started with the first two phases seeing a £400,000 investment (€500,000) to totally refurbish the ground floor, including building a new function room/private dining area seating up to 70.

All 30 staff jobs will be retained and an additional 27 people will also be recruited including a senior post for a general manager.

McKeever Hotel Group, County Antrim’s leading independent hospitality company, owns the successful Corr’s Corner just outside Belfast, the Dunsilly Hotel in Antrim and the Adair Arms in Ballymena.

Managing Director Eugene McKeever explained: “When we saw the Letterkenny Court Hotel we just knew it would be perfect as part of our family of hotels. It’s a great location in the town centre and has huge potential.  In September further work will be carried out on the 57 bedrooms and 26 apartments.”

Eugene and Catherine McKeever have built a successful brand by focusing on providing a family atmosphere, building staff loyalty and providing the customer with hearty food served in a lively, large grill bar that is at the heart of each hotel. The decor features rich fabrics, stone and dark wood – giving a cosy home from home feel where people feel comfortable and can relax.

“We have a clear vision of what we want to create at all of our hotels. Our staff are key to this success and we value each and every one of them. We are really delighted with the 30 staff in Letterkenny who clearly have a passion for the business and want to see it succeed,” he added.
