DescriptionThe Slaney Hotel in Tullow is steeped in history and dates back to the early 1900’s. When The Old Railway Station in Tullow operated, it generated many overnight guests at late notice where a hearty welcome, dinner and comfortable sleeping accommodation was provided for guests at the hotel. The Lennon family traded this riverside hotel for 3 generations and had a reputation across the country for a very well run family hotel providing all the general requirements of a small country establishment. All the old charm is still evident in the building today, while it has been extensively modernised in parts, the older section offers traditional features. The hotel changed ownership a few times in the 90s and became popular in the town for modern day requirements, parties and celebrations. Unfortunately, the recession saw the closure of the hotel in 2007 and, today, while the building remains structurally sound, it requires some modernisation to bring it up the standards of the current consumer and an opportunity to trade once more.
The site the building sits on has huge road frontage onto Abbey Street and extensive riverside frontage to the rear so future development opportunity is an exciting feature of this property. Tullow town like all rural country towns is now evolving from the recession and will require extensive town centre development to deal with the growing populations requirements for housing. Astute investors will recognise the double opportunity for both a current ‘boutique style’ hotel to the front and large residential development to the rear.
