HMH have also been busy in Ireland and HMH acted for a private individual in the purchase of The Castlemartyr Resort & Spa Estate outside Cork again for an undisclosed sum. The property comprised a state of the art 103 bedroom hotel, 18 hole golf course designed by Ron Kirby, three bedroom houses and 19 lodges. The whole property is set in 210 acres and the mansion overlooks a lake. In June the guide price was reported to be €13 million.
