Tapestry Collection by Hilton to open first hotel in Northern Ireland

Hilton has announced plans to open its first Tapestry Collection hotel in Northern Ireland in 2025.

The Marcus Hotel Portrush will operate under a franchise agreement with Andras House following an £11m refurbishment that will transform the listed building, a former hotel and artisan bakery, into an 83-bedroom hotel with a café, restaurant, and bar.

Interiors will be influenced by the surrounding seascape, with colour schemes reflecting the coastline.

The design will also make reference to some original features, such as the building's mosaic signage.

The project will start in September 2023 and is expected to attract £1.1m in annual visitor spend once complete, according to figures from Andras House' Economic Impact Statement.

Graham Dodd, managing director, development UK & Ireland at Hilton, said: "Northern Ireland has seen a significant jump in tourism in recent years, with travellers coming from all over the world to experience the charm of this captivating country.

"Portrush continues to experience growing demand for high-quality accommodation that provides an authentic experience rooted in local culture, making it the perfect location for Northern Ireland's first Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel."

Tapestry Collection by Hilton launched in January 2017 as a collection of mid-market hotels for guests seeking individuality and value. It now has over 100 properties worldwide.
