Talbot Hotel Group buys Newbay House Hotel 26/08/17

| August 26, 2017

A well known Wexford Country House  Hotel has changed hands for the second time in recent years and on this occasion is to join the rapidly expanding Talbot Hotel group which is owned by the Pettitt family.

The Talbot Hotel Collection announced this week that they had added another venue to their collection of four star hotels. This time, it’s the elegant Newbay House Hotel at Coolree on the outskirts of Wexford town.

The Talbot Hotel Collection is to work closely with the existing team at Newbay House Hotel to develop its already strong reputation for weddings and events and the company said in a statement  they were confident that this will inevitably lead to further employment at the venue.

Set amidst 16 acres of gardens and woodland, Newbay House Hotel is an elegant character property and manor house, originally part of the  French family, that has been lovingly restored to blend its historical past with a dash of contemporary elegance.

Commenting on the acquisition, Managing Director of the Talbot Hotel Collection, Mr Philip Gavin, said he was thrilled to add an exclusive wedding and events venue to the portfolio.

We have a very strong reputation for hosting weddings and events, and with Creative Catering we have become the preferred suppliers at several outdoor events in properties similar to Newbay over the years. So when the opportunity arose to marry our expertise with a beautiful venue, idyllic setting and spacious gardens which are ideally suited to weddings and large scale events, we knew it was the perfect fit for our brand,” he said.

Managing Director of the Pettitt Group, Mr Cormac Pettitt said;

Newbay House Hotel will compliment our existing businesses in Wexford – in particular The Talbot Hotel and the Talbot Suites at Stonebridge. We look forward to welcoming and serving the people of Wexford and beyond in this new and exciting venture”.

The Wexford based hotel collection, which comprises of the Talbot Hotel Wexford, The Talbot Hotel Carlow, Talbot Hotel Stillorgan, the Midleton Park Hotel, Oriel House Hotel, Cork, as well as Wexford’s Talbot Suites, and the Dome Family Entertainment Centre in Carlow, currently employs more than 700 people.
