Owners of 12th century castle in Northern Ireland bid for property’s boutique hotel conversion


The owners of a castle near Portaferry in Northern Ireland have submitted planning permission to transform the property into a new boutique hotel.

Mullahead Property Company Ltd has applied for permission to convert Quintin Castle into a hotel with eight bedrooms and a courtyard, which would be used for events such as weddings.

The Anglo-Norman castle was originally built in the 12th century by John De Courcy, and at one stage since then it was virtually a ruin before being restored in the 19th century.

The building has also benefitted from further renovations in recent years.

Mullahead Property is a firm associated with the owners of the Tayto crisp brand and says that the company intends to use the venue for visiting customers and for training and conference purposes.
