The administrators of the Lough Erne golf resort in Fermanagh have said it is now on the market and available for immediate sale at £10m.

The five-star facility opened in 2007 but failed to attract enough business and went into administration in May 2011.

At one stage, it was valued at about £30m.

When owners Castle Hume Leisure went into administration, they owed Bank of Scotland Ireland £25m.

The hotel comprises 120 rooms and suites.

The facilities include a dedicated conference and banqueting space for 400 people, five food and beverage outlets and an authentic Thai Spa.

The complex has two championship golf courses - the Castle Hume and the signature Faldo course - two floodlit driving ranges and boasts the only Nick Faldo Academy in Europe.

The sale also includes 25 substantially completed holiday homes (a mix of 3, 4 and 5-bed units) within the golf village.

Planning consent is in place to develop another 18 holiday homes.

The administrators said the "availability of this magnificent resort offers a purchaser a truly unique opportunity" to further establish it as one of the foremost golfing, leisure, wedding and conference destinations in Ireland and Britain.
