Built in a contemporary style back in 2006 by West of Ireland developer Noel Burke, the Fitzwilton is a well-regarded and garlanded hotel, but is being offered as a receivership sale via Stephen O’Donovan of BDO.
Since going to market this month there’s been very early and encouraging reaction says joint selling agent John Rohan of Sherry FitzGerald John Rohan, acting jointly with DTZ.
Mr Rohan also reports very wide interest in the Waterford city bar T&H Doolan (which appeared erroneously under a Limerick city headline last week), due for auction on March with a guide of €330,000.
As recently as 2012, the Fitzwilton won a Tripadvisor ‘Trendiest Hotel’ award, and was highly ranked in 2013 by Georgina Campbell. Close to the city centre at Bridge Street and Mary Street, and easily reached from the M9, the Fitzwilton has 90 en-suite bedrooms with penthouse suite, 10 executive suites, restaurant, bar/café and meeting rooms.
Nearby attractions, in what is Ireland’s oldest city with a population of 46,000, include Reginald’s Tower, Christ Church Cathedral, the City Square, The People’s Park, Theatre Royal, and the Greyfriars Municipal Art Gallery. As part of the 2014, 1100th anniversary celebrations, Waterford will unveil its new Viking Triangle development and other festivals include the Waterford Writer’s Weekend, Festival of Architecture, Harvest Festival and Winterval.
