Statements By Director of TMR Hotel Collection
Director of TMR Hotel Collection (and Davy Real Estate - its representative in Ireland) Eimear Fox stated, "Ballymascanlon House Hotel is synonymous with the social and business life of the north-east region and we are delighted to add it to our growing stable of luxury four and five-star hotels. Since acquiring our first hotel in 2014 each purchase has been followed by substantial investment and growth in visitor numbers and local economic impact. We hope to further build on the superb legacy of service and hospitality provided by the Quinn family over the past three quarters of a century."
Fox added, "Ballymascanlon will strongly complement our existing regional spread of resort hotels including Harvey's Point, Aghadoe Heights, Connemara Coast Hotel, Diamond Coast Hotel, Mount Wolseley and Farnham Estate.
