The five-star Ashford Castle Hotel recorded a 17 per cent rise in revenue last year. However, this was not sufficient to help it return to profit.
The hotel, which underwent a €75 million refurbishment in 2015, reported turnover of €20.9 million in 2017, as against €17.9 million a year earlier. In the prior year the Cong, Co Mayo hotel recorded a 52 per cent rise in revenues from €11.7 million.
Newly filed accounts show Ashford Castle recorded losses before taxation of €3.3 million, slightly lower than the €3.5 million loss reported a year earlier.
Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation rose by €570,494 to €4.04 million.
