The former Carlton Abbey Hotel in Athy is currently up for sale, with the guide price currently set at €550,000.
Situated just off Stanhope Street in Athy, the hotel was formerly a Mercy Convent before it was turned into a business in 2006. It was only open for six years before the doors were shut on the 39-bedroom hotel in January 2012, and it does require some extensive refurbishment as it is currently vacant.
The three-storey period listed building is generally of cut stone external finish under a timber pitched slate covered roof with single glazed timber sliding sash windows throughout. The adjoining oratory was also part of the former convent and was fully refurbished and renovated as the bar area for the hotel.
The bar in the hotel seats approximately 100 persons and this is situated in the former chapel, which retains many of its original features. There is a small private dining room adjoining the bar and a separate small kitchen. Restaurant facilities were provided for seating approximately 80 persons and the function room has capacity for around 180 people with dedicated bar, toilets, and dance floor. There are also some smaller meeting rooms and residents lounges which all form part of the former Carlton Abbey Hotel.
Lisney Commercial Properties are in charge of the sale of the former hotel. For more information, see: https://www.lisney.com/commercial
