19 February 2019

Galgorm Collection have agreed to buy Templeton Hotel, marking a staggering £10m investment in Northern Ireland tourism by the hospitality giant in the last 12 months

 

The Galgorm Collection previously known as Tullymore House Ltd will invest a further £7million in the local economy as they agree to buy the Templeton Hotel in Templepatrick.

 

The property will join Galgorm’s already impressive investment portfolio, including the £1.5million investment in Belfast restaurants Fratelli & Café Parisien and the £600,000 purchase and refurbishment of the Castle Kitchen + Bar at Galgorm Castle Golf Club in 2018. The Resort is set to unveil additional luxury cottages within the estate this March offering guests a new way to stay and enjoy the Galgorm experience.

 

The recent acquisition not only reinforces the companies continued investment and commitment to the tourism industry, but Northern Ireland as a whole.

 

Managing Director Colin Johnston said: "Our multi-million-pound investment in Templepatrick will strengthen the local community and economy, as well as embolden Northern Ireland’s reputation as a world-class tourism destination. Over 50 jobs will be created in Templepatrick and all current staff will be retained.”

 

The Galgorm Collection are an extensive investor in Northern Ireland.  Our new project in Templepatrick will bring our current employee count to just short of 1000 people, reaffirming our commitment to the people of Northern Ireland.’

 

Galgorm are renowned for creating world-class hospitality experiences in Northern Ireland.  Exciting and energetic plans for the redevelopment of the Templeton Hotel are afoot and will be revealed soon.

 

Their stellar reputation was cemented last year when the Resort was selected to host one of the world’s most prestigious hospitality award ceremonies, the World Luxury Spa & Restaurant Awards, and are the current holder of the Global Luxury Spa Hotel of the Year award.

 

The Templeton Hotel was built by Stephen & David McCombe in 1990. It is a popular location for weddings, conferences and events, and is a firm favourite with locals. Galgorm looks forward to building on this commitment to the local community bringing a warm welcome and world class service to the people of Templepatrick.
