Roe Park Golf and Spa Resort on the market for £14million

A 4-star resort on the outskirts of Limavady has been put on the market.

Listed for sale through the CBRE Group with a guide price of £14m, the Roe Park Resort was named the Best Golf Resort in Ulster at the 2024 Golfers Guide to Ireland awards and has been independently owned since it opened in 1995.

In the last three years, the popular resort has seen investment of over £3million in its wedding and events facilities, golf course, refurbishment of bedrooms and development of a third self-catering property – the Gate Lodge.

The 118-bedroom resort which sits on the edge of the Roe Valley Country Park, was once an 18th Century manor house and the site of the first hydroelectric power to be introduced in Ireland.

The historic manor house has been beautifully restored and together with the original coach house and gate lodge, gives the Roe Park Resort its unique charm.

As well as having 118 bedrooms, 18-hole parkland golf course, driving range/golf academy, spa, two award-winning restaurants, bars and health club, the Roe Park Resort has three self-catering properties with planning permission sought for the development of a further 11 detached self-catering units.

Speaking on behalf of the Roe Park Resort, Alan Wilton, Board Chairman said: “Roe Park Resort holds a very special place in our hearts, and we are extremely proud of the successful and stable business it is today.

"After almost 30 years, the directors believe that the time is now right for new owners to take up the reins and see the resort continue to thrive into the future.”

Northern Ireland is a golfers’ paradise, boasting a fantastic mix of courses to challenge all skill levels. Roe Park Resort is renowned as one of the top golf destinations in Northern Ireland.

It not only offers a PGA standard 18-hole, 5,154m parkland course but is also very close to some of the world’s legendary links courses along the Northern Ireland coast.

These include Royal Portrush Golf Club which will again host the Open in 2025 following the hugely successful competition in 2019 when almost 240,000 visitors attended the event.

Alan Wilton concluded: “This is an exciting transition for Roe Park Resort. One which provides a great opportunity for the resort and the team to develop even further under new ownership.”

Paul Collins Head of Hotels in CBRE Ireland commented: “We are delighted to be appointed to sell one of Northern Ireland’s best known and highly profitable resort hotels. Roe Park Resort is an exceptional opportunity for parties to acquire a thriving business in a charming location with excellent future development potential.”
