Annebrook House Hotel wins ‘Hotel of the Year' title

The Annebrook House Hotel is at the top of its game, having won at The Irish Hospitality Awards in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Dublin on Monday March 25 last.

The hotel was nominated in three categories and won Hotel of the Year, beating seven other hotels.

The Annebrook’s weddings and events manager, Ciara Slammon, accepted the award on behalf of her colleagues, and proprietor Berty Dunne said: “It’s great to receive such prestigious recognition for all the hard work and dedication of our hotel and staff.

“To receive this award among our industry peers is such an honour. Since receiving the award last Monday we have been overwhelmed with the support and well-wishes we have received. 

“As always, we are grateful for all the support the hotel receives from the local community, our loyal guests and the midlands in general. 

“Our philosophy is to keep our business customer-focused – keeping the customer’s needs and requirements to the fore allows us to remain at the top of our game.”

Three hundred professionals gathered to celebrate their achievements in a ceremony to recognise the growth of Ireland’s hospitality industry, and the winners – chosen by the public plus a panel of judges – reflect hard work, quality and customer service. 

The awards also showcase the individuals who continue to thrive and whose excellence has led them to the forefront of the industry.

There were 28 accolades presented on the night to winners. 

A spokesperson for the Irish Hospitality Awards said: “The hospitality industry has grown significantly over the years and this has introduced new challenges to professionals who work within the sector. 

“Customer expectations have increased but these winners are the experts in meeting their customers’ needs and demand is the best possible way.”

If you fancy a great night out, this one on Friday sounds like great fun.
