Hillmount House To Develop New Wedding And Conference Centre

Co. Antrim's Hillmount House has completed a six-figure investment in the development of a new wedding and conference centre with funding support from Ulster Bank.


With the capacity to seat up to 200 guests, it is anticipated the latest addition to the Hillmount estate will double turnover from its events business.


Events manager Sabrina Jamet-Harper said, "Set in the magnificent grounds of Hillmount House, our new wedding and conference centre offers a stunning and spacious setting with an attractive terraced area for guests and delegates to take in the surroundings of the estate. Alongside the original property, which offers excellent meeting and breakout facilities for groups of various sizes, Hillmount House is equipped for all types of events, from conferences, corporate events and launch parties to that special day."

Ulster Bank business development manager Conor McNeill said, "We're very pleased to support the team at Hillmount House with the development of its new wedding and conference centre, which adds a premium asset to the hospitality offering in the local market unlike anything currently available. Backed up by a dedicated team, we're confident it will act as a catalyst for growth, generating additional revenue and supporting job creation right down the supply chain as it attracts more business to the area for the benefit of other third-party suppliers and service providers operating in the events sector."

Owner Andrew Brennan said, "We've banked with Ulster Bank since taking ownership of the premises and its team has always been supportive of our vision for Hillmount, so we decided now was the right time to expand to meet the demand."
