Team Shandon are celebrating this week after the announcement of TripAdvisors top 25 hotels in Ireland 2020.
Carolynne Harrison, General Manager said all credit goes to her amazing team who deliver service excellence with passion and flair. I am super proud of our team, to be named in the top 3% of the best hotels in Ireland is a true accomplishment and to be right up there in the top 25 along with Harvey’s point, with whom we have aspired to in terms of excellent Donegal hospitality is an honor. We thank our fantastic guests who take time out of their busy schedules to review their experience and we thank them sincerely for their undivided support and encouragement as we work through this pandemic.
The top list is a beautiful sample of why Ireland should be enjoyed in years to come as a fabulous staycation destination. Irish Hospitality is amoungst the finest in the world, couple that with the beautiful coastlines, beaches and fantastic culinary skills we have to offer and you’ll find it hard to beat by all accounts.
Carolynne said that nowadays, TripAdvisor is key in the final decision of where to go for a short break and their ranking has certainly paid dividends this summer with the resort accommodation being fully booked until September, she said, ‘ we have always had a strong domestic market without any over dependence on corporate, weddings or tours, therefore the new challenges that we all faced post Covid were easier navigated by us.’
The Shandon Hotel & Spa has been named in the top 3% of the best hotels in the country for the 4th year in a row. The seaside resort opened under new ownership, Mr Warren McCarthy in March 2016 and has enjoyed exemplary success since.
General Manager Carolynne has been as the helm since pre-opening and she commends the vision of managing director Warren, she said, we have no excuse not to make this product amazing. The significant investment and development of the product has been a key factor in our success.
