Forster Court Hotel to re-open

Wednesday, 12th July, 2017 2:20pm

The Forster Court Hotel is expected to re-open its doors in time for the Galway Races later this month.

The city centre hotel, which was forced to close its doors in July 2015 following a serious flooding incident, is due to open on Friday, 28 July.

The Connacht Hospitality Group have taken charge of the hotel and will re-open it under the same name.

50 jobs are expected to be created with the reopening of the hotel, according to Eveanna Ryan, new Group Manager at the Connacht Hospitality Group.

The hotel, located at Forster Street, has undergone a major facelift including a full refurbishment of all 50 bedrooms, as well as a soft refurbishment of the ground floor.

This is the second hotel to open under the Connacht Hospitality Group in recent weeks.

Earlier this summer the Group reopened the old Spanish Arch Hotel on Quay Street as The Residence Hotel in conjunction with new bar 1520 (the former Spanish Arch Bar).

They also own The Connacht Hotel in Renmore and An Púcán on Forster Street.

Ms Ryan said they are committed to the development of the Connacht Hospitality Group.

“We’re really working towards being a big player in the hospitality industry in Galway and developing a local staff,” she added.

Ms Ryan stated that they are in the process of recruiting staff for the Forster Court Hotel and 1520. Anyone interested in applying for a position is asked to contact
