Abberley may get lease of life with new owner

By Mary Dennehy

A SALE has been agreed, but not closed, on the Abberley Court Hotel, with the new prospective owner interested in re-opening the property as a hotel.

In May of this year, the Abberley, – which opened in 1995 and was Tallaght’s first hotel – closed unexpectantly. Clients were then asked to vacate the premises and the doors were locked.

The Abberley is on NAMA’s books, with the national assets agency taking the decision to close the business and cease trading – with the loss of 70 jobs.

Grant Thornton’s was appointed receivers and The Echo understands that they are currently in the process of selling the Tallaght landmark hotel.

A sale has been agreed but no sale closed, with The Echo understanding that, if all goes smoothly, the Abberley could have new owners by the end of the month – a move which will be well received by the local community.

When the hotel, which was owned by the Flynn family, first closed, it prompted an outpouring of support for the local establishment – the closing of which shocked staff and residents.

However, The Echo has learned that the potential buyer is interested in re-opening the premises as a hotel – and if all goes to plan, it could be back open to the public in the coming months.
