One of Ireland’s most noted manor hotels, Raheen House hotel in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, is to be offered for sale through CBRE Hotels as a going concern with a guide price of more than €1.8 million.

The three-star, 15-bedroom hotel is noted for its superb wedding facilities and 3.5 acres of designer gardens only a short walk from Clonmel town centre. The high standard of hospitality and accommodation earned the hotel an “exceptional” rating from Booking.com in its latest survey of the best small hotels in the world.

Raheen House has a 40-seater restaurant and bar. The hotel can cater for 140 people in the function room, which has it own bar. The room opens out into a garden, where a marquee can be erected to increase the overall capacity to more then 200. The hotel is well on the way to catering for more than 50 wedding receptions this year.

The 15 bedrooms all have their own individual styles, with the ground floor courtyard rooms opening out into a private terrace.

History

Raheen House is steeped in history, with part of it dating back to the middle of the 17th century. The main house was build in the early 1840s, and was sold in 1878 by the Greer family for £55. The house was acquired by Col George Colden, one of the ruling class in Clonmel. In more rent times the house was home to Fine Gael senator Denis E Burke.

The present owners, Elizabeth and John Day, bought it as a family home in 1988, and eight years later converted it into a manor hotel. The building and grounds underwent significant refurbishment in 2014. The current owners intend to retire from the business.

John Hughes of CBRE, who is handling the sale, expects Irish and overseas interest in what he describes as a “magnificent and historic property” with scope to expand the business.
