Profits at the four-star Lyrath Hotel in Co Kilkenny last year increased by 67 per cent to €834,979.

This followed revenues last year at Lyrath Demesne Ltd increasing by 8.5 per cent from €11.7 million to €12.7 million.

The pre-tax profits of €834,979 follow pre-tax profits of €500,223 in 2017.

The 139-bedroom luxury hotel set on 170 acres enjoyed the growth in revenues and profits under the ownership of businessman Xavier McAuliffe who had previously owned the hotel.

It cost Mr McAuliffe more than €25 million to buy back the estate from Bank of Scotland appointed receivers and he has since spent €5 million on a major refurbishment of the hotel facilities.

In 2012, Mr McAuliffe was forced out of the business when Bank of Scotland’s receivers took the keys to the luxurious estate on the edge of Kilkenny city.

Mr McAuliffe established the Co Kerry-based Spectra group and is part of the consortium that operates the GoSafe Speed vans for the Garda Síochána.

Numbers employed by the hotel company last year declined from 202 to 199 as staff costs increased from €4.7 million to €5.14 million.

The company recorded a gross profit of €10.36 million and administrative costs of €8.87 million reduced the company’s profits to an operating profit of €1.49 million.
