Three Hotels Shut Doors in the Southeast

Three hotels in the southeast of Ireland have closed down, resulting in the loss of dozens of jobs in the region.

The Cedars and Harbour View Hotel, both in Rosslare in Wexford, abruptly shut their doors following a €35,000 judgement against owners Chan Holdings awarded to Carlow County Council, according to the Wexford People.

The closures of the Wexford hotels come after the The Courthouse in Carlow, also owned by Chan Holdings, closed at the end of last month.

The company was ordered to pay the amount to the County Council, as well as a further €9,000 to the Town Council, for unpaid commercial rates on the hotels.

The hotels are currently fenced off with a notice on the doors announcing the closure "due to unforeseen circumstances". The Cedars has been closed since December last year but was due to reopen in April.

Chan Holdings owns a numbers of hotels, restaurants and other businesses in the southeast.
