SHANNON SPRINGS HOTEL had plenty reason to celebrate at the recent Irish Hotel Awards.

Close to 400 people from every sector of the hospitality were in The Radisson Blu Hotel in Athlone at the end of October for the return of the awards.

Shannon Springs Hotel was named as the Airport Hotel of the Year in all of Ireland. Lisa Glynn who is the marketing manager at the Shannon hotel also took home the gong for marketing manager of the year, beating off competition from the entire country.

Ruan’s Dermot Kelly received the accolade for General Manager of the Year. A co-owner of the Shannon Springs, he took home the prize for his work at the Great National South Court Hotel.

Located in Killaloe, The Lakeside Hotel was voted as the most romantic hotel in Munster.

Shane Smith, Director of NI Media who runs the Irish Hotel Awards said, “The turmoil that we‘ve all been through was like nothing any one of us could have possibly imagined but thankfully the industry is getting back on its feet. This is of course great news for the sector and the standards that are being met, particularly considering staff shortages are simply outstanding” .

The Irish Hotel Awards report on each property contains no less than 280 points which must be addressed, making it one of the most in depth in Ireland. The awards are sponsored by AIBMS, Clearer Water and YesChef Magazine.
