Having purchased the hotel in 2016, PREM Group has since spent over €6.5 million on the property.

The initial renovation programme saw the renovation of the guest rooms in the original house, as well as the creation of a striking dining room that is now home to 2 AA Rosette, Herbert Restaurant.

Last summer all 28 rooms in the Garden Wing were redesigned and an eclectic bar, The Cellar Bar was added.

“The initial phases of work carried out by PREM Group began almost immediately after we purchased the property, and this involved putting on a new roof, replacing all mechanical and electrical installations and complying with fire and safety regulations throughout," explains Jim Murphy, CEO of PREM Group.

"We were very conscious to restore and refresh important historical features and many of the eye-catching parts of the house, such as the original sash windows, which were painstakingly restored and given a new lease of life”.

The property has been closed since December in order to allow a further €1.3 million renewal programme to be carried out over the winter months, bringing the total renovation figure to €7.8 million.

The former ‘Coach House’ will now become home to eight new luxurious bedrooms while the elegant Drawing Room, overlooking Killarney National Park, The Library and The Atrium are all being completely reimagined.

The work on The Library and The Atrium will be completed before the property reopens on the 8th of March, while the work on The Coach House is expected to be completed by May of this year.

Julie Goggin has been commissioned with the interior design while architects, Moloney O’Beirne have created the design on The Coach House.
