A new boutique hotel is set to be built in Larne, Northern Ireland, after a former bar went under the hammer and was snapped up for development.
A £3.2m new hotel has been earmarked for the site of the former Dan Campbell bar in the town centre as part of an application submitted by MBA Inver Investments.
If given the go ahead, the former bar premises and The Thatch bar would be demolished to make way for the new development extending into Point Street, with the project expected to commence at the end of next summer.
It would be called the Inver River Hotel and would be the second of its kind in the town.
It is expected that 37 full and part-time jobs will be created.
The vacant corner four storey Dan Campbell’s property had been on the market for £70,000 in March of this year but failed to reach the reserve price at a public auction.
