Historic Tipperary Hotel on the Market

The Cashel Palace Hotel, which in its time has been visited by Ronald Reagan, Jackie Kennedy and Liz Taylor, has been placed on the market for a guide price of €2.25 million.

The architectural masterpiece was first built for an archbishop in 1730 and started trading as a hotel in the 1960s. The property has 19 guest bedrooms and two self-contained units.

Guests at the hotel, which is positioned right in the middle of the town, at the foot of the Rock of Cashel, could access the famous ecclesiastical site via a private, secluded walkway.

The site is currently not trading as a hotel and estate agents CBRE have suggested that a private owner may consider purchasing the 25-acre property as a luxury home.

The hotel stopped trading in December last year when then owners Pat and Susan Murphy closed doors, cutting 32 staff.
