Ebrington Hotel has opened its doors to the public in the Londonderry area of Northern Ireland, BBC News reported.

Located on the former army base, the £15m ($19m) hotel currently has 93 bedrooms, which will be increased to 152, as well as a spa with a hydrotherapy pool.

It currently employs 85 people and eventually intends to employ 120 people altogether.

The hotel features a restaurant with a seating capacity for 140 people, as well as a conference room, bars and lounges.

Renovation of the renowned Ebrington clocktower and five buildings at the site were part of the hotel refurbishment works.

Built in 1841, the 29-acre base functioned as military barracks up until 2003.

A proposal to set up the hotel at this location was presented in 2017 and obtained clearance from Derry City and Strabane District Council in 2018. 

Ebrington Hotel managing director Cecil Doherty said the hotel expects to tap into the golfing market and appeal to tourists visiting various locations across the island: “The north coast of Northern Ireland caters for £12m ($15.3m) of the golfing market and very little of that market stays in the city here.

“We will also be focusing a lot on an international clientele who come to other areas of Northern Ireland and move about day-by-day.”
