A month before hosting the G8 Summit, Lough Erne Resort in Co Fermanagh has undergone plans to sell the estate. CBRE announced that the “jewel in the crown” of the Fermanagh Lakes will be for sale at a guide price of 10 million euros or 15.5 million dollars.
UTV reported that the estate had previously gone into administration in May 2011 and ended up on the market a year later due to debates on land ownership.
The 35 acre site is now for sale again with CBRE handling the transaction. The resort is located on a 6,00 acre peninsula and houses a Nick Faldo designed golf course. Golfing elite Rory McIlroy has endorsed the course that has been estimated to cost 35 million euros to construct. The CBRE says the course is on the “bucket list” for golfing tourist around the world.
Administrators from KPMG have been running the business for the last two years. The site has had seen some but no serious interest in a purchase.
