Former Co Donegal hotel the Shandon up for auction

photo 3A reserve range price of between €670,000 – €730,000 has been put on the Shandon Hotel and Ocean Spa.

The hotel is located at Marble Hill Beach in Portnablagh (PORT NA BLA).

A Donegal Hotel that has been closed for the last couple of years is up for auction in Dublin next month.

The Shandon Hotel and Ocean Spa is going under the hammer for less than €700,000.

It was once a hugely popular hotel when it was in business and regularly attracted tourists from all over Ireland and the UK.

After it was initially taken into receivership in February 2011, the hotel was forced to close shortly after.

The Shandon Hotel was managed by local couple Dermot and Catherine McGlade before Bank of Ireland officials called receivers in.

There was a significant number of jobs lost when the Shandon closed, but it is hoped that if the hotel is bought, that it will be re-opened which would create more jobs in the area
