A €9m investment into Limerick’s Casteroy Park Hotel has been confirmed by its owner Pat McDonagh, better known as the founder and CEO of fast food chain Supermac’s.
The investment was part of a number of projects announced for the city at the University of Limerick GAA breakfast morning, held in the hotel on Monday January 23rd.
The expansion, subject to planning permission, will allow for 30 additional rooms in the four star hotel, as well as a complete refurbishment of the existing rooms, conference centre and leisure facilities. The hotel was purchased by Mr. McDonagh in 2012 for €3m.
“It is time for all of us, as players in this city, to decide to move now to build a great city,” said Mr McDonagh, who was joined by Minister for Finance Michael Noonan for the morning. “Here in the Castletroy Park, I’m delighted this morning to reaffirm our commitment to this city. I’m especially happy to announce our decision to embark on an expansion of the hotel.”
As well, a new Supermac’s restaurant is to be built along the Ballysimon Road, which has already received planning permission. The new opening is part of Supermac’s investment into the Limerick region, which includes refurbishment of the existing O’Connell St and Ennis Road outlets.
