New Carrickmacross hotel opening to customers today

The Treacy Hotel in Carrickmacross is opening its doors to customers today.

The former Oasis and Carrick Court Hotel closed in 2009 but was recently sold to the Treacy Hotel Group, which has others in Waterford, Enniscorthy and Ennis.

It’s intended that the hotel will be completely redeveloped over the next five years but opens its doors to customers today.

Eileen Tracey from the group told Northern Sound News recently that around 50 staff would be recruited initially, but it’s hoped that that could increase to 120 over the coming years.
