International hospitality management company, PREM Group, has completed the first stage of its renovation programme at Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort, Blessington, Co. Wicklow. The group purchased the 90-bedroom hotel in 2016 and since then has already spent over €6 million on the property to return the 18th century Manor House and its surrounding grounds to their former glory. The initial renovation programme saw 16 new bedrooms being added to the Wicklow property while the bridal suite, foyer, drawing and library rooms of the Manor House have been tastefully transformed. Interior designer, Julie Goggin oversaw the design of the property to include a revamp of the the hotel lobby and Elk Bar.

Further to this Architects Moloney O ‘Beirne was commissioned to design a state of the art clubhouse for the property offering golfers a modern and bright facility to gear up in before playing the championship course. A major part of the investment has focused on the main entrance, grounds and golf course making it one of the best parkland golf courses in the country. Men’s developmental professional golf tour, the PGA EuroPro Tour, have also selected Tulfarris Hotel as their host venue for three consecutive years since the vast course improvements.
