The Ebrington Hotel is the latest addition to Derry~Londonderry’s luxury accommodation and is the perfect excuse for booking a short stay in one of the finest examples of a walled city in Europe.

The hotel, which opens on 7 July, overlooks the river Foyle and the iconic Peace Bridge and is less than 5 minutes’ walk to the Guildhall Square. It is the culmination of new construction together with refurbishment of listed buildings on the Ebrington Barracks site including the historic Clock Tower which has been totally refurbished to include 33 bedrooms, and state of the Conference suites.

The hotel’s accommodation of 89 bedrooms includes four signature suites with stunning views of the river Foyle & entire cityscape. Guests have complimentary use of spa and leisure facilities which include a sauna, steam room, hydrotherapy pool and gym.

The soft muted tones, striped fabrics and natural materials aim to reflect the views, creating a relaxed atmosphere and a perfect harmony between the exterior scenery of the square and river beyond and the interior design.

One of Ireland’s finest and most celebrated chefs, Noel McMeel, has joined the hotel’s team as executive chef. Noel is known as the King of Irish Cuisine, championing the use of fresh seasonal, hand-selected ingredients across all his menus, using only the finest locally sourced produce. He will head up the hotel’s 142-seater restaurant ensuring that it will serve up an array of gourmet offerings with a strong emphasis on sustainability.

Cecil Doherty Managing Director of The Ebrington commented”

This hotel marks a new beginning for Derry and the wider tourism in Northern Ireland. We are proud of the new-look property and the new team we have in place . The hotel is well placed for access to the city centre across the famous peace bridge, golf courses, walking trails at st columbs park and cultural discoveries in the city town with local artisans and its various arts like tile/dish painting, tapestry or basketry. We also have a luxurious Spa, where guests can indulge in exclusive face and body therapies with local organic ingredients.

The building project which took 18  months to complete at a cost of over £16 million, has created  95 jobs in advance of opening with a further 25 roles due to be advertised within the next 12 months
