The Talbot Collection has announced the acquisition of one of the Clonmel Park Hotel.
Situated on the doorstep of the Comeragh Mountains, in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East, this acquisition will be the third hotel in Munster for the group.
The group currently has seven hotels located in Cork, Carlow, Wexford, and Dublin.
The Clonmel Park Hotel has been under the management of Tetrarch for the past seven years and has an excellent reputation not only locally, but nationally. With 120 staff, the hotel is one of the biggest hospitality employers in the county. Its location and geographical base to all the other Talbot Hotels makes this acquisition a strategic move for the Talbot Collection.
Philip Gavin, Managing Director, The Talbot Collection, commented: “we are thrilled to be able to announce our acquisition of the Clonmel Park Hotel. We have long admired this hotel not only for its fantastic location but also its commitment to delivering exceptional service to its customers. We have been working alongside Tetrarch and CBRE to make the transition as smooth as possible and would like to extend our thanks, and credit to both.”
A key employer in the region, Mr. Gavin paid tribute to the 120 staff within the hotel: “The team is the biggest asset to the hotel and the Clonmel Park Hotel has an incredibly skilled and dedicated team that we as a group look forward to working alongside”.
Cormac Pettitt, Managing Director of the Pettitt Group, the family-owned group which owns The Talbot Collection, said: “This is a major acquisition for us as a group. We have grown our Talbot Collection Brand from our original property the Talbot Hotel Wexford. We are delighted to extend this now to Tipperary, our fifth county, and to the thriving town of Clonmel. Our team prides itself on delivering a 4-star hospitality experience and we are very excited about doing this in Clonmel for many years to come.”
