Roe Park Resort listed for sale at £14m

Known for its award-winning golf facilities and amenities, the independently owned Roe Park Resort is now on the market, offering a prime investment opportunity in Northern Ireland's hospitality sector

The hotel was once an 18th Century manor house and the site of the first hydroelectric power to be introduced in Ireland

The four star Roe Park Resort, on the outskirts of Limavady has been listed for sale through the CBRE with a guide price of £14 million (€16.5 million). Roe Park Resort, which was named the Best Golf Resort in Ulster at the 2024 Golfers Guide to Ireland awards, has been independently owned since it opened in 1995.

In the last three years, the popular resort has seen investment of over £3 million (€3.5 million) in its wedding and events facilities, golf course, refurbishment of bedrooms and development of a third self-catering property – the Gate Lodge. It is now one of the leading luxury resorts in Northern Ireland.

Alan Wilton, board chairman, Roe Park Resort, said: “Roe Park Resort holds a very special place in our hearts, and we are extremely proud of the successful and stable business it is today. After almost 30 years, the directors believe that the time is now right for new owners to take up the reins and see the resort continue to thrive into the future.”

The 118-bedroom resort site on 150 acres on the edge of the Roe Valley Country Park, was once an 18th Century manor house and the site of the first hydroelectric power to be introduced in Ireland. The historic manor house has been beautifully restored and together with the original coach house and gate lodge, gives the Roe Park Resort its unique charm.

As well as having 118 bedrooms, 18-hole parkland golf course, driving range/golf academy, spa, two award-winning restaurants, bars and health club, the Roe Park Resort has three self-catering properties with planning permission sought for the development of a further 11 detached self-catering units.

Roe Park Resort is renowned as one of the top golf destinations in Northern Ireland. It not only offers a PGA standard 18-hole, 5,154m parkland course but is also very close to some of the world’s legendary links courses along the Northern Ireland coast. These include Royal Portrush Golf Club which will again host the Open in 2025 following the hugely successful competition in 2019 when almost 240,000 visitors attended the event.

Paul Collins, head of Hotels, CBRE Ireland, said: “Roe Park Resort is an exceptional opportunity for parties to acquire a thriving business in a charming location with excellent future development potential.”
