New Titanic-themed hotel to set sail for former church in Belfast


A Titanic-themed hotel could be constructed in west Belfast, if plans to transform a former church are given the green light.

The project could see the Shankill Road Mission Presbyterian Church revamped into a 50-bedroom, four-star hotel, inspired by the ill-fated cruise liner.

Argyle Business Centre is set to take control of the building, according to the North Belfast News.

Drennan McBride of the business centre said ‘at least five’ individuals and companies have expressed an interest in taking on the project.

He said a ‘feasibility study has been completed along with an economic appraisal and they have come back positive’.

Belfast is experiencing somewhat of a new hotel-build boom at the moment, with around 20 hotels at various stages of development around the city.

One of the biggest projects is the transformation of the former Harland & Wolff drawing offices in the Titanic Quarter into an 84-bedroom hotel, due to open this year.
