THE new owner of Benners was delighted that the business has finally reopened on Castle Street and says the hotel will breathe more life into that part of town.

Benners Hotel opened yesterday and Der O’Sullivan of The Mall Tavern and Delicatessan was at the opening of the new bar there last night where friends and well wishers toasted its future success.

“We’re open now and it’s onwards and upwards from here. To see the lights on here for people passing is great and it will add a new dimension to this side of town. The publicans nearby are delighted too because there’ll be extra footfall around. People beget people as they say,” said Der.

“The gastro-pub will be open on Thursday from 5pm on, while the new Courtyard Bar area will open on Saturday which is a real gem of a spot,” he said.

The hotel currently employs over 25 people and the accommodation side of the business will be open from Friday.
