Sisters Valerie and Sabrina Sherlock, who have spent their careers working in the Irish hotel industry, are planning to open The Marcy Hotel, formerly known as The Westcourt Hotel, in Drogheda, Co. Louth.
The boutique style hotel will have a modern and contemporary vibe while honouring the history of the building on West Street in Drogheda town.
Valerie Sherlock, who is a former employee of The Westcourt Hotel, has announced that her bid has been successful to take on the lease of the Drogheda hotel that she ran as general manager for the last 23 years.

The Marcy Hotel will open in phases during 2022. Initially, the Sherlock sisters will focus on providing quality overnight accommodation, with plans to re-open the bar and restaurant later this year.
Statement By Valerie Sherlock
Valerie Sherlock stated, "Both Sabrina and I have been in hospitality all of our working lives. We know that the difference between a 'hotel' and 'hospitality' is the experience you have, the people you interact with and how they unlock the secrets of the local area for you. Drogheda is a wonderful location for tourists and we look forward to offering our visitors a great experience to help them make the most of their stay."
An investment by the hoteliers will see the exterior of the hotel get a facelift with a new colour scheme as well as restyling of the hotel lobby, corridors and stairwells. A schedule of refurbishment of the bedrooms is also underway
Online bookings for bedrooms will be live in mid-April and the hotel will be open to its first guests from Saturday 7 May.
