The Carrigaline Court Hotel and Leisure Centre celebrates twenty years in business on Sunday November 11th. 

The hotel was built in 1998 on a site which used to belong to the internationally renowned Carrigaline Pottery. First established as a 52-bedroom hotel in 1998, the Carrigaline Court Hotel has grown into a 91-bedroom, four-star hotel in the intervening years, and become what has been described as “the heart of village life in Carrigaline”.

Originally there were 70 people employed there, a figure that has doubled to 140 in 2018. Seven of the staff who started at Carrigaline Court Hotel in 1998 are still working there today, while ownership of the hotel has remained within the Collins’ family. 

Currently a multi-million euro refurbishment is underway that will see 91 newly renovated bedrooms come on stream in 2019, a new reception area and a revamped Leisure Centre.

To mark the 20 year milestone, The Carrigaline Court Hotel will open its doors for a day-long celebration encapsulating the thriving bond between the hotel and local community. Starting at 10am with a live RED FM broadcast with lots of giveaways and prizes, the 20th birthday party will continue on a family theme, with children’s entertainers and some great live music and entertainment in the afternoon. “The local community here in Carrigaline have always been very supportive of us,” said owner Peter Collins, “and we’d like to share with them what is a very special day for us”. 

The hotel has enjoyed a wide corporate clientele from various multi-national companies in the south County Cork area, while never losing its long-standing relationship with the local communities of Carrigaline and its hinterland. “We are proud to host several large community-based events throughout each calendar year,” said General Manager Jerry Healy, “and the hotel has become a focal point locally for the likes of St Stephen’s Day and St Patrick’s Day celebrations annually.”

“We are grateful to a fantastic and hardworking staff here at Carrigaline Court Hotel, under the guidance of General Manager Jerry Healy and partners such as Alf Smiddy, who have all dedicated themselves to ensuring we have something great to offer our customers, both new and old,” concluded Mr Collins.
