SHANNON’s Hannah Pike has been named as the winner of the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) Rising Star Award.

A receptionist at the Shannon Springs Hotel, Hannah was presented with the Rising Star Award at the IHF’s annual conference which took place at the Slieve Russell Hotel, Golf & Country Club, Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Denyse Campbell, President of the IHF presented the accolade.

Hannah started her hospitality career in the Shannon Springs Hotel’s Accommodation Department in 2021 before moving to the Restaurant and Bar in the summer of 2022, and then to her current role in Reception in early 2023.

In each role, Hannah quickly adapted and excelled, increasing her knowledge of the hotel’s various operations and departments.

This coming September, Hannah plans to apply to the Shannon College of Hotel Management. The judges commended Hannah for her professionalism, maturity and adaptability when selecting her as the Rising Star winner.

Founded in 1937, the Irish Hotels Federation is the national organisation of the hotel and guesthouse sector in Ireland. It represents almost 1,000 hotels and guesthouses nationwide, employing over 65,000 people and is a key stakeholder in the Irish tourism industry.
