The former Great Southern Hotel at Rosslare Harbour, Co. Wexford is for sale. Savills and Claude Howlin Auctioneers are guiding in the region of €350,000 for the property.
The now semi-derelict building stands on a rectangular shaped site of 1.2 ha (3.15 acres) with frontage to both the St Martins Road and the N25. The sale also includes two detached houses which adjoin the hotel complex and has the benefit of full planning permission for the development of a 60 bed nursing home and 25 apartments for use connected to the nursing home.
The site is located in the heart of Rosslare overlooking the Harbour and due to its elevated position has stunning views out over the Irish Sea. Rosslare Harbour is home to the Europort which provides access to Britain and continental Europe.
“Approximately 300,000 vehicles and 1,000,000 passengers pass the Great Southern Hotel site each year going to and from the port. Based on the existing zoning for “Town Centre” the site has great potential for redevelopment for a wide range of uses including the existing use, nursing home potential (due to the current planning), retail, residential etc.” comments Loman Dempsey of Savills
