TRU Hotels purchases Northern Ireland's Lough Erne Resort

A U.S. investment group led by Vine Avenue Advisors, LLC, headed by Michael Saliba, and TRU Hotels and Resorts, a hotel investment and management company founded by veteran American hoteliers Jeff Mahan and Mark Ward, has completed the purchase of the Lough Erne Resort. 

The golf resort, located near Enniskillen in Northern Ireland, was built in 2007 and hosted the last G8 Summit in 2013. Last year it won the Northern Ireland Tourism Board’s ‘Hotel of the Year’ award, and it was recently selected to host the 2017 Irish Open golf tournament.

TRU will be overseeing the management of the resort, which is expected to officially change hands this month.
