4 Top Awards of Excellence for Irish Country Hotels & Manor House Hotels

Irish Country Hotels & Manor House Hotels were well represented among the award winners at Monday’s 26th  Annual CIE Awards of Excellence held in Dublin Castle.  

 

Best 3 Star Hotel – Dingle Benners Hotel

For the second year running, Dingle Benners Hotel scooped the Gold Award of Excellence for Best 3 Star Hotel in Ireland.  Cormac O’Sullivan, General Manager of Dingle Benners Hotel,  accepted the award on behalf of the entire Dingle Benners team.   “It is an absolute privilege, to be honoured for the second year in a row with the highest award for excellence from our most important judges, our guests. Our hard working team make every effort to offer the very best experience to every one of our guests and I am thrilled to be taking this award home for them as recognition for all their efforts”.   


Gold Award of Excellence

Killeen House in Killarney won the Gold Award of Excellence for Special Dinner Feature.  Michael & Geraldine Rosney have been running Killeen House since 1992 and have built up an exceptional reputation for their restaurant, Rossers.  

 

Awards of Excellence

Mill Park Hotel, Donegal and Cabra Castle in Cavan both won Awards of Excellence for achieving an overall average rating of over 90% customer satisfaction.     Both hotels have been hosting CIE guests for many years and have consistently ranked among the favourites, with Cabra Castle winning the Best 4 Star Hotel in last year’s CIE Awards of Excellence. 

 

What makes these Awards of Excellence all the sweeter is that the winning hotels are chosen from feedback received through CIE Tours customer surveys, from those who travelled on a CIE tour in 2015.
