Agent CBRE Hotels is expecting significant interest in its offering of the three-star Raheen House Hotel, across the river Suir from the town centre of Clonmel, Co Tipperary.
The hotel is contained within a well maintained period property standing on 3.5 acres (1.4 ha) of manicured gardens.
The 15-bedroom hotel with a gate lodge, which was fully refurbished in 2014, is a historic building with parts of it dating back to the middle of the 17th century.
It is well known in the vicinity for facilitating intimate weddings and other functions, hosting in excess of 50 wedding receptions in 2017 and it is licenced for civil ceremonies.
Considering its central location, the gardens offer a secluded setting and this has resulted in the premises rating highly on sites like Booking.com and Trip Advisor. The hotel is being sold on behalf of Elizabeth Day who has been building the business since 1996 and is due to retire. She has owned the property since 1988.
Within the hotel premises is Darcy’s Restaurant with seating for 40 people along with The Buffalo Bar for a more relaxed dining setting. It has the capacity to handle up to 140 guests in Cobden’s function room and bar. This room opens out onto a lawn and patio section of the garden, allowing for a marquee to increase capacity to over 200.
The gardens were designed by award-winning garden designer, Alan Rudden, who has combined mature planting with a more contemporary planting scheme. The walled-garden area is popular for wedding ceremonies, providing an excellent photographic backdrop.
This unique property comes to market as a going concern with a guide price in excess of €1.8m.
