Popular Kilkenny hotel gets green light for major new expansion
A popular Kilkenny hotel has been given the green light for a major expansion that will provide a major boost for local tourism and business.
Kilkenny County Council has approved The Springhill Court Hotel plans to build 45 new rooms onto the existing hotel which is located on the Waterford Road.
The hotel currently has 85 guest rooms but with the plans now approved it will see the bedroom capacity rise to 130.
The extension will see the creation of a new four-storey extension to the front and side of the existing building. The extension will also see the addition of a new passenger lift.
Under the plans, the Springhill Court Hotel limited will also reconfigure the current car park layout to provide more spaces and will see the installation of a new security barrier for commuting guests.
