Druids Glen completes €3m refurb programme
Druids Glen Resort today announced that it has completed the second phase of it’s €3m refurbishment programme.
The project which has had a three phase development plan running has so far seen work carried out on the guest rooms, the ballroom, private dining suites and boardrooms.
The Wicklow resort has fully completed the refurbishment of 145 guest rooms and suites in the hotel which have been redecorated in conjunction with designers Sheehan and Barry. According to the hotel, the renovations were taken on after its two most successful years trading in 2012 and 2013.
“This is an exciting time for us here at the resort as we undergo a number of changes right through from our bedrooms to the historic Woodstock House,” said CEO Edward Stephenson. “We have spent a lot of time planning and preparing for these developments, which have been a significant investment for us this year and we are delighted with the improvements to date.
“The resort is trading ahead of 2013 and in particular I am pleased with the significant growth in the average room rate, a key performance indicator for this sector. Summer accommodation bookings are pacing 15pc ahead of last year, conference bookings are buoyant and there has been a notable increase in corporate golf activity which is to be welcomed.”
