Conditional approval for Cashel Palace Hotel

Conditional approval for Cashel Palace Hotel

A project to restore and extend one of Eire’s best-known country house hotels has won conditional consent. Formerly the Bishop’s Palace, Cashel Palace Hotel was completed for Archbishop Theophilus Bolton in 1730. The property became a luxury hotel in the mid-20th century frequented by the likes of Ronald Reagan, Jacqueline Kennedy and Richard Burton, but was eventually closed in 2015.

Architects ReardonSmith has gained conditional planning consent to transform Cashel Palace into a country house hotel for the 21st century with 61 bedrooms and suites and grand function areas. Their masterplan sets the hotel in the context of its restored gardens, with a new cloister of bedrooms wings that echo the fabric of the town and a new guestroom extension to the original building.

The new ballroom, pre-function areas and supporting back-of-house have been positioned away from the residential neighbours; while the new guestroom buildings look inwards towards the hotel grounds. A new spa will benefit from adjacent gardens and both car parking and the access road will be improved for the benefit of local people as well as hotel guests.
