The Westgrove Hotel situated in Clane has announced its €2m upgrade which will allow them to create an additional 50 jobs in Kildare. The four-star hotel opened initially in 2006 and said they will be upgrading their event and meeting areas in addition to their bedroom suites.
Later this year, a second refurbishment will be taking place which will be an entire upgrade of the interiors. This includes the main ground-floor spaces. They will be carrying out a full redesign of their restaurant and bar. The residents’ bar will be renovated and added to the new hotel slug in addition to a new reception area to greet guests on arrival.
Leading interior design business Ventura Design will carry out the work. They have previously worked on projects such as the Adare Manor Estate in Luttrellstown Castle in addition to other work for Vogue Williams, Pippa O’Connor, and Millie MacIntosh.
The hotel just did a recruitment drive to increase its team of 100 staff. They have said they have seen a great bounce in the company within the last few months and with restrictions easing, they have seen a big demand for weddings and conferences.
The CEO, Patrick Fadden said he is excited the sector is back up and running again and that they expect to further develop their corporate and domestic leisure market which makes up around 80% of their current business.
