Mansfield finalises €300m plan for Kildare estate

Citywest owner Jim Mansfield is finalising his plan to develop the 800acre Palmerstown estate in Kildare.

24th March, 2007

He intends applying for planning permission for investments totalling €300 million.

Mansfield bought the Palmerstown estate for just £10 million (€12.7 million) in 2000. He plans to build a 200-room five star hotel on the site, but not attached to the old house.

Mansfield hopes to develop the courtyard into luxury apartments and houses, and to add a second golf course.
