The four-star Talbot Hotel Collection has announced the addition of the ‘Stonebridge’ building on Paul’s Quay in Wexford town to its hotel portfolio.
The building features 73-luxury apartments located less than 100 metres from the four-star family owned Talbot Hotel on Wexford’s quayside. It will, according to the new owners, become a Talbot Hotel Collection Aparthotel.
Stonebridge was developed as a lavish complex; it was completed in 2008, however it was never opened for public use. It features 73 partly finished exclusive apartments, which are ideally suited for spacious family holidays, luxury breaks and executive stays.
The building also features a 314 space multi-storey car park enabling the new owners to offer private parking with direct access to the hotel-serviced apartments. Guests will also have access to the pool and leisure centre and food and beverage services at the adjacent Talbot Hotel.
The expansive modern building situated on just over two acres in the centre of Wexford town also includes over 4,000 square metres of retail space along with an exquisitely refurbished six-storey former grain store listed building. Two further retail buildings are also included in the sale, a three-storey at 89 South Main Street and a further building at Pierce Court.
Commenting on the acquisition, owner of the Talbot Hotel Collection Cormac Pettitt said, “We are delighted to have purchased this fantastic development in the heart of Wexford town, it is a very exciting opportunity for the company. Our plans are to invest a further €2.5million to complete these luxury apartments and welcome guests by the middle of this year.
This is a major acquisition for the company and we are very much looking forward to bringing life back to this amazing development; the views alone are enough to make guests fall in love with Wexford town.”
