New beginning for Crumlin Road Courthouse 

One of Belfast’s most historic landmark buildings is planning to open its doors to the public again for a very different purpose. The Crumlin Road Courthouse is set for a new beginning as a luxury hotel, according to its owner, Northern Ireland-based property developer, Barry Gilligan. The development represents a £25M investment and will create over 200 full and part-time jobs on opening and up to 300 jobs in the construction phase. Mr Gilligan’s proposals envisage a luxury 161 bed hotel, with many historical features retained including the Crown Courtroom, featuring the infamous tunnel which links directly into its dock from the Crumlin Road Gaol, across the road from the Courthouse.
