Decision due this week on plans for spa and nightclub at Kilkea Castle
8:00 Monday 16th of April 2018

Kildare Co Council is expected to make a decision tomorrow on major plans for Kilkea Castle near Castledermot.

The venue wants to convert its former nightclub and bar area into a leisure complex.

Facilities being planned include a swimming pool, a spa area, changing rooms and a gym.

A planning application with Kildare Co Council earlier this year.

Two single-storey extensions are part of the proposed development.

Kilkea Castle was built in 1180 by Hugh deLacey and was in the Fitzgerald Family (the earl of Kildare) for over 700 years.

The resort closed in 2010 and was purchased by US businessman Jay Cashman who has devoted the last number of years to restoring the Castle and the surrounding estate into a premium resort.
