Roe Park Resort Listed For Sale At £14 Million

The 4-star Roe Park Resort, located on the outskirts of Limavady, is now on the market through CBRE Group, with a guide price of £14 million.

Roe Park Resort, which was named the Best Golf Resort in Ulster at the 2024 Golfers Guide to Ireland awards, has been independently owned since it opened in 1995.

Over the past three years, the resort has invested more than £3 million into enhancing its wedding and events venues, upgrading its golf course, refurbishing bedrooms and introducing a new self-catering accommodation option, the Gate Lodge. These improvements have solidified its reputation as one of Northern Ireland's luxury resorts.

Speaking on behalf of the Roe Park Resort, Alan Wilton, Board Chairman said: "Roe Park Resort holds a very special place in our hearts, and we are extremely proud of the successful and stable business it is today. After almost 30 years, the directors believe that the time is now right for new owners to take up the reins and see the resort continue to thrive into the future."
