A €45million luxury resort has been put up for sale in Co Wicklow through Savills Hotels & Leisure.
The Druids Glen Hotel & Golf Resort includes the Druids Glen golf course, which has hosted four Irish Opens and is nicknamed the ‘Augusta of Ireland’.
The resort also includes the Druids Heath golf course. The courses were designed by Pat Ruddy and former Irish golfer, Tom Craddock.
It also features ‘Woodstock House’ – a club house which was built in 1770 by the Earl of Aldborough’s clan.
Woodstock House has been used by musicians such as Rod Stewart, Mike Oldfield and Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi as a writing and recording base.
The stunning hotel opened in 2002 and has been fully refurbished over the past four years.
It sits on 339 acres of land and has 145 bedrooms. It also contains a spa, health club and eight conference and event rooms.
There are numerous dining options including Hugo’s Restaurant, the Garden Rooms and Bar and Sycamore Lounge
