The magnificent Farnham Estate in Cavan is sold with the guide price of €26 million and one lucky buyer will become the proud owner of 1,250 acres of pristine land with breath-taking scenery. The four-star hotel presents an excellent investment opportunity as it is just about 90 minutes away from Dublin and close to the borders of Northern Ireland.
Currently under the management of the renowned brand Radisson, it will be run independently after the sale. The main building comprises 158 rooms and large suites with woodland views, and there’s opportunity for additional development elsewhere on the estate. Hundreds of acres of woodland and countryside house plenty of amenities guests will be able to enjoy, such as a manicured 8-hole championship golf course designed by Jeff Howes himself, over four miles of walking and cycling trails and tranquil lakes for fresh-water fishing and water sports.
All rooms exhibit the same low-key contemporary luxury that conveys style and understated elegance – the perfect combination for relaxing away from the noise of the city. And if that’s not enough – a state-of-the-art SPA centre with 19 treatment rooms, stretched across a total of 40,000sq feet of space, provides plenty of pampering treatments that will leave guests feeling renewed and deeply relaxed. Part of the award-winning SPA is a sauna, aroma baths, a laconium (dry sweating room) and a hydrotherapy infinity pool, whose spectacular design means it’s half indoors and half outdoors.
As the Head of Hotels & Leisure at Savills – Tom Barrett, describes it – the hotel is ‘one of the largest and most profitable hotel resorts in Ireland’. It’s expected to be the biggest hotel sale outside of Dublin since 2014 and presents a lucrative opportunity for investors to step on the local scene. The venue is popular for corporate functions, weddings and weekend getaways.
