Northern Ireland could soon have its first floating hotel after a businessman announced ambitious plans for a three-star venue on the River Bann.

Seamus Carey is seeking planning permission for a hotel with 36 cabins on a 70-metre Norwegian vessel at his Cranagh Marina Complex in Coleraine. He hopes the hotel would be up and running next summer, with the creation of 50 jobs.
