The Club Hotel at Goffs
The team at Goffs auctioneers held a vision for many years to be able to offer their clients a great place to stay, where they can be in the centre of the sales activity, so they approached the team at Nhance – owned by established Irish hoteliers Ray Byrne and Eoin Doyle to develop this unique offering. The Club Hotel at Goffs.
Ray Byrne says: “Kildare is under-serviced with hotel rooms, given it has so much to offer, not just with horseracing and breeding, there are wonderful places to visit, including Kildare Village, championship golf at The K Club, Newbridge Silverware, The National Stud, the Japanese Gardens, Carton House and Palmerstown House, and wonderful heritage attractions like Castletown House, so the decision to run with this project for Eoin and myself was an easy one.”
Together and independently, Byrne and Doyle already have a stable of successful and well-known independent hotels, many with a long-standing reputation for good food and top-notch hospitality. A member of Ireland’s illustrious Blue Book, Byrne’s Wineport Lodge is synonymous with the popular TV show, The Restaurant for many years. BrookLodge & Macreddin Village, owned by Doyle and his brothers, has Ireland’s only certified organic restaurant, The Strawberry Tree. Collectively, Doyle and Byrne own gastropub, The Queens in Dalkey as well as Eccles Hotel & Spa in Glengarriff, which has become a go-to foodie destination in the west of Cork. Most recently their micro-hotel brand, REZz in Cork and soon to open in Dublin, provides the essentials for a city break without the drama.
