Our team are thrilled to have won the title of Ireland’s Best Country House and Guest Experience at the 2019 Hotel and Catering Review Gold Medal Awards which were held on Tuesday, 24th of September at Lyrath Estate, Kilkenny.
With 135 finalists up for honours, the judges achieved a rather daunting task of choosing 31 outstanding properties for recognition.
Our General Manager, Emer Corridan, said, “We are thrilled with this accolade and it is a testament to the hard work, passion and determination of all of our team. We have consistently raised our standards at Cahernane House Hotel and we keep on improving our property so that our discerning guests have a wonderful and memorable stay with us. Thank you to the judges, this means a lot to all of us, it’s wonderful.”
Donagh Davern, FIHI and member of the Judging Panel said of the awards, “We are lucky as judges to see the best which the Irish Hotel and Catering industry has to offer and experienced some wonderful examples of guest service. In a time where we are experiencing tight labour market conditions, we met some fantastic staff who were truly assets to their employers and the reason why guests return to a business. While product offerings have been enhanced, it is the people that make the true difference to the Irish Hotel and Catering product and the industry needs to ensure that these ambassadors are retained to enhance the industry going forward. Our congratulations to all the finalists.”
