UK: A £3.2 million hotel has been proposed for Larne, Co Antrim, on the site of the former Dan Campbell’s pub.

The application to develop the luxury accommodation, to be known as the Inver River Hotel, is being made by MBA Inver Investments. The former Dan Campbell's premises and The Thatch bar would be demolished to make way for the new development extending into Point Street. Demolition work is expected to commence at the end of next summer.

Mervyn McKay of MBA Inver Investments said: "We are very excited about bringing this stylish, boutique hotel to Larne. As the hospitality sector in Northern Ireland continues to thrive, we feel the time is right to build this new, high quality hotel to contribute to the continual development of Larne'sreputation as a great place to visit. We're looking forward to attracting more tourists to the town while offering the local community a quality product with excellent customer service standards.

"Larne, linked to Scotland by the Larne to Cairnryan P&O Ferry route, is a great base to explore the scenic and popular Causeway Coastal Route. The location of the new boutique hotel is close to a number of great local attractions including the Gobbins, Carnfunnock Country Park and many of the vastly popular Game of Thrones filming locations which will help to draw visitors to the town," he added.

George Fekkes, of DA Architects, will be working in partnership on the project.

It is expected that 37 full and part-time jobs will be created.
