Kathleen, a retired nurse, and Joe Boyle, a builder by trade,
purchased the derelict site here in Brooklodge, Ballyglunin in 2006. They had initially planned to convert the site to a holiday village with numerous new buildings and facilities. A halt was put to this in 2008 because of the recession, but this did not stop the Boyles from ploughing forward with the business you see today!
Although work is at a slower pace than planned and building plans
have been revised extensively, nevertheless progress is ongoing. We often tell visitors that once a building is painted white, we consider it a finished job. We welcomed our first guests in March 2012, and business has evolved as we learnt more about the hospitality industry. It has been a steep learning curve but, based on the positive feedback we are receiving, we now feel we are on the right track!
