Beannchor to open £4m Belfast hotel in October

The Beannchor Group, Northern Ireland's largest hospitality group, has announced it plans to open the 43-bedroom £4m Bullitt Belfast hotel this October.

Named after the Steve McQueen movie of the same name, the hotel will feature three bars (including Baltic, Northern Ireland's first ski-themed bar), a courtyard garden, a 68-cover restaurant called Taylor and Clay, an Espresso bar and a private events space. The hotel will create 100 new jobs when it opens.

The company boasts a portfolio of 50 hotels, restaurants and pubs, headed by the AA five-red-star Merchant hotel in Belfast. The group also oversees Little Wing Pizzeria, the Dirty Onion, the National Grande Café and Sixty6, and more than 40 pubs.

Conall Wolsey, director of Beannchor, said: "Design, technology and efficiency are at the heart of all of our plans; the hotel will be equipped with super-fast Wi-Fi, the only Kees Van der Weston coffee machine in Ireland, super-fast check-ins for guests, NI's first ski-themed bar and of course, stylish bedrooms. Bullitt will also provide a welcome boost to the NI jobs market."
