We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Bord Pleanála has upheld the decision by Waterford City and County Council and has granted permission for the underground function room and associated works.

We are already planning to start building in September/October 2023, with a scheduled opening in late spring 2024, 60 years after Jean and the late John Kelly opened the doors. 

We cannot thank our thousands of supporters enough - without you; this wouldn't be happening.

It is an excellent day for Dunmore East and the surrounding area! 

These new facilities will undoubtedly bring scores of new jobs: during the building works within The Haven Hotel, and in local businesses, through the increase in visitor numbers.

It will also be a vital new facility for local groups and organisations and, as the temporary marquee facility has already done, it will help ensure year-round business to Dunmore East.

We REALLY appreciate every single one of you who supported us though the planning process.

Thank you so much

Paul & Karen Kelly and everyone at Team Haven
