The Galgorm Resort and Spa in Northern Ireland recently unveiled its £11m expansion project, which has created 80 new jobs – according to a Belfast Telegraph report.The new development saw the introduction of a unique ‘Thermal Spa Village’ plus an additional 48 deluxe guestrooms and suites. The hotel will now have 122 rooms. Over the past decade, more than £35million has been invested in the resort.
The stunning new facility includes 75,000-square-feet of luxurious thermal spa experiences, which the hotel claims is the first of its kind in the UK and Ireland. Located on the banks of the River Maine, guests can enjoy hot tubs, indoor and outdoor heated pools, steam rooms and saunas in a tranquil setting.
The Ballymena-based resort first opened in 1998 and Terence Brannigan, chair of Tourism NI, said the expansion will enhance Northern Ireland’s reputation as a “must-visit destination”.
Tullymore House Group, which owns and operates Galgorm Resort and Spa, is also developing the Bedford Hotel in a £12.5 million project at the iconic Scottish Mutual Building in Belfast, and last year the Group opened Fratelli Restaurant in Great Victoria Street.
