New jobs and castle restoration in Northern Ireland luxury hotel project

The multi-million pound development of a Northern Ireland luxury hotel and spa at Killeavy Castle Estate is to create 80 jobs.

Regional development agency Invest Northern Ireland, which has made an offer of £983k to support the development, revealed that the development of Killeavy Castle, Hotel and Wellness Centre is expected to create more than 80 new jobs in the Newry, Mourne & Down District Council area, as well as new jobs during the construction phase over the next two years.

The project will also involve the restoration of the Grade A-listed Killeavy Castle for use as a guest house and meeting venue, the development of a courtyard of Grade B-listed outbuildings into a 40 bedroom boutique hotel and spa, the construction of a permanent marquee as a special events suite and the restoration of a walled garden.
