Finnstown House Hotel on the market at €4.25 million

Regarded as one of the finest country houses on the edge of Dublin, Finnstown Country House Hotel in Lucan is currently on the market by estate agents, Savills, who are quoting €4.25m for the freehold property. It was formerly owned by Jim Mansfield of City West Hotel fame and he also owned the nearby Weston airport.

Set on 19 acres of mature grounds, the original house was built in the 18th century; with beautifully laid out grounds and mature trees, it has been a popular destination for wedding parties for a number of years. The three star, Finnstown House hotel has 82 bedrooms with two bars, a restaurant, three lounges, four meeting rooms and banqueting facilities for up to 200 persons.

According to the Sunday Business Post, Jim Mansfield paid around €20 million for Finnstown in 2007 plus a considerable sum on its refurbishment. Since the demise of the Mansfield group, Dalata hotel operating company, headed by former Jurys Doyle chief executive Pat McCann, has run the hotel on behalf of Bank of Scotland (Ireland).

Located 12km from Dublin City centre, Finnstown House is adjacent to Adamstown development which when fully developed will contain 10,000 new homes currently 1,300 have been built. A number of years ago Castlethorn Construction the consortium for the development of Adamstown objected to a planning application for a new leisure centre at Finnstown House on the ground that they had planning permission to develop a leisure centre at Adamstown. With the downturn in the economy Castlethorn never managed to find an operator to managed the leisure centre and it has yet to be developed which has frustrated many Adamstown residents who were promised a leisure centre at an early stage of the development.

Reports in some national papers speculate on the future development of the 19 acres of mature grounds leading up to the hotel. However during the Adamstown SDZ application a ruling was made that theses lands were set aside as green space and cannot be developed
