Hotel planning £1.4m expansion

By Louise Small

A new £1.4m investment at a Co Tyrone hotel has been announced by Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster.

Corick House is planning a major expansion supported by Invest Northern Ireland, which will create seven new jobs.

Invest NI has offered £230,000 to help fund the plans to bring the hotel capacity to 43 bedrooms.

The refurbishment will also see a spa and leisure facility added to the resort.

Arlene Foster said the investment will enable Corick House to increase its revenue by attracting more visitors to Northern Ireland.

"With visitor numbers expected to increase sharply this year, local tourism related businesses have the opportunity to step up to the mark and develop world-class facilities," she added.
