Marine unveils a plush new look

The Marine Hotel, Ballycastle has unveiled the results of a major refurbishment scheme at the seafront venue.

The completion of phase one of a £1m expansion programme has seen the Marine Hotel – the largest in the town – renovate all 33 rooms and its seafood restaurant, Marconi’s Bar & Bistro.

The renovations also include the refurbishment of the hotel’s function room, which can now hold up to 400 guests.

The second stage of the expansion will see the hotel add 12 new executive bedrooms and an additional event space, as well as upgrading the exterior of the hotel in-keeping with its new, modern interior.

The Marine Hotel was bought out of receivership in 2013 by experienced local business partners Colum McLornan and Claire Hunter. Since coming under their ownership, the Marine Hotel has created 36 new jobs. A further 10 will be created once the second phase of the expansion is completed next year, ahead of the Open Golf tournament  at Portrush in July 2019.
