Permission Being Sought To Open Island Of Ireland’s First Floating Hotel

Seamus Carey, the owner of the Crannagh Marina Complex in Coleraine, Co. Derry, has applied for planning permission to open the island of Ireland’s first floating hotel.

If he is given the green light to open the proposed hotel, Carey will transport a 70 metre long barge from Norway to Coleraine for an eight-week refurbishment that will transform it into a 36-cabin, three-star floating accommodation venue. Carey hopes to have the hotel up and running by the summer of 2021, and intends to employ approximately 50 people at the venue.

“Enhance Our Offering”

The Irish Times quotes Carey as saying, “We believe the floating hotel will enhance our offering and enable visitors to stay and enjoy not only the facilities at the Crannagh, but all the wonderful offerings of the north coast.”
