Portumna Castle Gate Lodge remains in State ownership

Sean Canney TD Minister of State has received confirmation that the Gate Lodge at Portumna Castle has been purchased by the National Monuments Service on behalf of the state. The Gate Lodge was on the open market and there was a risk that this important and strategic Lodge would be separated from the iconic Portumna Castle. The Lodge is part of the castle and can now be incorporated into the overall plans for the continued development of Portumna Castle as a tourist attraction. Recently the OPW opened the Cafe Shop in the Courtyard and the bus park is next to be developed.
“The adjacent marina is also another added attraction to the tourist potential in Portumna”.
“I want to acknowledge the assistance and support of Minister Joshepa Madigan and her officials together with Minister Andrew Doyle in securing the Gate Lodge”.
