40 Years of Cusack Family Ownership
The Granville Hotel was purchased by locals Liam and Ann Cusack in 1979 and reopened in 1980. They had been looking at hotels in Munster and saw the potential in this historic building. The hotel had become rundown, with a bar downstairs, a small dining room on the first floor and flats occupying the rest of the building.
Full restoration works were undertaken, including upgrading the bar, creating 50 ensuite bedrooms and turning a portion of Hearne's store into the Taptestry function room and Bianconi Restaurant, returning the hotel to its former grandeur and ombining modern comfort with olde worlde charm and elegance.
