We are delighted to announce the addition of the Midleton Park Hotel in Cork and to also announce our plans to invest 1 million into the property.
This is a wonderful addition to the Talbot Hotel Wexford, The Talbot Hotel Carlow and the Stillorgan Park Hotel in Dublin.
We are delighted to be adding the Midleton Park Hotel to the Group, It is one of Cork’s best known hotels and we are looking forward to working with all of the team at the Midleton Park and also on improving the Hotel and taking it to the groups’ standard of four stars.
In the summer of 2012 a receiver was appointed to the Midleton Park Hotel and a hotel group has operated the hotel since then for the receiver. This purchase now fully secures the future of the Midleton Park Hotel and the future of its employees. We plan to invest a significant sum in the region of 1million into the property and securing the future of the 80 employees at the hotel plus we will be adding to that number of employees throughout the renovations and upping the number of seasonal workers during holiday periods. We have some great plans in the pipeline to develop the hotel and it services for hotel guests and the people of Midleton. We are planning improvements for the Function room, Restaurant, Bedrooms and Lobby. We also feel that our customers at the Talbot Hotel Group will value this new addition to the group’s choices.
We will commence with substantial investment in the wedding and conferencing facilities and we have some very exciting and elaborate plans which have already been designed.
The Midleton Park Hotel has 79 well-appointed guest bedrooms two executive suites and a presidential suite, conferencing and wedding facilities and a gym and swimming pool along with a hotel Spa. Cork man Patrick Shields will manage the Midleton Park Hotel.
The Talbot Hotel Group is very proud to employ over 400 people at the Wexford, Carlow and Dublin based hotels and an additional 400 employees across the Pettitt Supervalu stores. Our group has undertaken enormous expansion with a €40 million investment in the construction of the Talbot Hotel in Carlow and redevelopments in both the Talbot in Wexford and The Stillorgan Park Hotel and the Pettitt group also recently invested 2million in its supermarket in Athy County Kildare and we are very proud to be expanding the group again, with the addition of The Midleton Park Hotel.
