The Haven Hotel in Dunmore East is delighted to have been granted planning permission (subject to conditions) to build a new event and wedding facility at the hotel.
The new building will sit quietly into the top bank of the lawns and, while it will be virtually unnoticeable from the road, it will still enjoy the stunning Hook Peninsula views.
It will be accessed via a staircase and lift from within the hotel and from a staircase from the terrace and will be able to host one large event or wedding or up to four several smaller events at one time.
Paul Kelly, owner and manager of The Haven Hotel, commented: "This will not only enable us to hold bigger functions and events, but it will also allow us to increase employment within the hotel as well as creating more job opportunities for local businesses and suppliers.
"It is also a welcome facility for the local community. Dunmore East has grown significantly over the past few years, but there is still nowhere for many groups and organisations to meet regularly. We want our new space to be used by as many in the community as possible.
"We want to thank everyone who has supported us so far sincerely, and we look forward to starting the build in September 2023. Until then, we have received permission to keep the marquee facility in place.”
