Dungarvan refurb

The Park Hotel, Dungarvan is to have a €400,000 refurbishment project, which has been ongoing since earlier this year, with the majority of works now complete. The works sees 40% of the property’s bedrooms upgraded to ensure that hotel guests experience the perfect night’s sleep in the popular, family-friendly, Flynn family owned hotel as well as upgrades to the Leisure Centre and lobby
 General Manager of The Park Hotel, Declan Moriarty said:  “Our refurbishments will enhance the hotel services and highlight our commitment to providing a high standard of service to all of our guests.”


 This refurbishment project saw a mixture of Petit Double Rooms, King Rooms and Queen Rooms, refurbished and upgraded to Boutique and Executive Double rooms in January. Each of the rooms has been freshly painted, with new beds and new headboards, as well as new fixtures and fittings, installed. 
€160,000 has been invested in upgrades to The Park’s Leisure Centre, which see the changing rooms remodelled and upgraded, including division of all showers; an extension to the ladies and family changing unit; the installation of new lockers and swimsuit dryers; new toilet facilities; new tiling; and the installation of new air-conditioning units. The pool hall roof has also been repainted and a new floor was also installed in the reception.
€9,000 worth of new equipment has been purchased for the Leisure Centre gym including a new lat pull down with a rower, seated leg curl machine, chest press, and dumbbells with stand.
On Sunday, June 17th, the Leisure Centre will host a Free Open Day for the general public to showcase the new facilities. Visitors are invited come along and use the swimming pool and gym free of charge on that day; and anyone who signs up for a full year’s membership will receive one month’s membership free of charge.
 The works in The Park Hotel are part of a €3m investment in refurbishment works across the Flynn Hotel group’s four properties, which also include the Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny; Old Ground Hotel, Ennis; and The Imperial Hotel, Cork City. The Park Hotel was opened on July 4th, 1990, and a new hotel extension with 42 new bedrooms was opened exactly 16 years later. Owned by second generation hoteliers, the Flynn family, The Park Hotel provides close bonds to that history and their beginnings, and is beloved by locals and visitors alike for its gracious service and genuine smiles.
