According to Savills, Cavan Crystal is a consistently profitable hotel. It benefits from a strong existing trade and further growth is forecasted. Its large local catchment area has developed a strong mix of both corporate and leisure business.
Cavan Town is situated 110km from Dublin (1 hour and 20 mins) and 50km from Enniskillen. The Region offers a large number of outdoor activities and attractions such as fishing and kayaking, due to its close proximity to a large concentration of lakes both in the county itself and in neighbouring Fermanagh. Local businesses include; Liberty Insurance, Lakeland Dairies, RSA, Obelisk and CG Power Systems.
The hotel sector in Ireland enjoyed much improved trading conditions last year, largely driven by an increase in visitor numbers and a resurgent Irish brand. This growth is expected to continue throughout 2014, with regional locations to benefit from improved local demand and increased tourism from overseas. The property is available free from management agreement, if required.
Tom Barrett, Head of Hotels and Leisure at Savills said, “This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a strong local hotel benefitting from an established mix of leisure and corporate business. It is trading profitably and is well positioned to capitalise on the strong recovery being experienced in the hotel sector at present. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a hotel with both well-established and growing trade.”
