Co Tyrone hotel is a 'development opportunity'

By John Mulgrew

A former Co Tyrone hotel has gone on sale.

The Caledon Arms sits on Main Street in Caledon. The ex-hotel and bar is now being sold off by property firm Whelan.

The property includes “substantial listed premises situated adjacent to the former courthouse in Caledon”.

“The original front block dates from around 1830 with more recent extensions added at the rear,” according to the firm. “The two-storey block fronting is constructed in limestone stone walls and a pitched slate roof. The extensions are a mixture of stone with pitched slate of flat felted roof coverings.

“Internally the building is laid out over basement and two upper floors and are now vacant having been previously been used as a public house up until about two years ago and, prior to that, as a hotel.

“The original internal areas to the front of the building are largely unchanged and provide a bar and lounge areas with function rooms and a kitchen area to the rear.”

A price for the property has not been advertised, and is being sold as “open to offers”.

The property has been unoccupied and is in need of refurbishment.

“Prospective buyers have an opportunity to develop a hotel/bed & breakfast business or convert this large period building to residential use,” the sellers have also said.
