It’s been a period of expansion for Tullymore House Ltd, first known as owners of the luxury Galgorm Resort & Spa in Co Antrim. The business acquired a derelict chapel in south Belfast to turn into a branch of its pizzeria restaurant, Fratelli, before also revealing that it would turn the nearby former parochial house into a boutique hotel. It also owns city centre restaurant Cafe Parisien.
However, there was further evidence of greater ambitions this year when it announced it had acquired the Templeton Hotel in Templepatrick, which it’s to renovate in a £7m project. Last year it announced the £600,000 purchase and refurbishment of the Castle Kitchen + Bar at Galgorm Castle Golf Club in 2018. The company, now known as Galgorm Collection, was set up by brothers Nicholas and Paul Hill.
