With the creation of at least 20 new jobs for the Midlands, Newcastle House Hotel and Country Club is set to become one of the main employers in the area.
Located in the heart of Ireland, just one and a half hour’s drive from Dublin, Newcastle House Hotel endeavours to offer an amazing hotel experience.
This 300-year-old manor house, set on the banks of the River Inny near Ballymahon in County Longford is steeped in history. Standing on 44 acres of mature parkland and surrounded by 900 acres of forest, Newcastle House is an excellent base from which to explore and enjoy the natural wonders of Ireland.
The establishment has recently undergone a major refurbishment, which included the restoring of the manor house, ballroom, grand hall, conference room and the library to their former glory. With the first phase of works completed, the hotel opened its doors on September 1 for private events and Sunday lunch, by reservation only.
The addition of 34 luxury, purpose-built bedrooms adjoining the main house, which include two and four-bedroom luxury self-catering suites, make this property ideal for families, large groups or corporate and team building events.
Surrounded by 20 kilometres of woodland walks, visitors can enjoy fishing and canoeing on one of Ireland’s best white water rivers, catering for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts. The hotel offers an idyllic romantic setting, a fully licensed bar, and a large ballroom.
Newcastle House offers an exclusive private wedding venue, catering for up to 120 wedding guests.
Phase two of the building works is to be completed in the coming weeks, which will see the restoration of the hotel’s 16 period guest rooms, and the final finishes put to the spa and therapy rooms.
With an outdoor heated swimming pool, hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms, a hair and beauty studio, nail bar, and a coffee shop, the hotel and spa provide all the ingredients needed for achieving complete relaxation.
Added to this, there are snooker tables and a games room to keep the children entertained while the parents enjoy the facilities.
The Newcastle House Hotel and Country Club also has fitness facilities on site.
