The Limerick Strand Hotel received three major awards at the Irish Hotel Awards hosted at the Heritage Hotel, Killenard in association with YesChef.

With over 250 guests at this prestigious black-tie affair, The Irish Hotel Awards celebrate the amazing commitment and dedication of the hospitality industry in Ireland and provides a bespoke programme to deliver a unique insight into the visitor experience in each participating hotel. They deliver a 280 point report offering 360° feedback on each department in each property, with a detailed assessment of their guest experience from reservation and check in, right through to checkout and departure.

The Irish Hotel Awards are intensely competitive; drawing entries from hundreds of hotels. Each entrant is thoroughly evaluated by members of the judging panel who access the detailed hotel reports.

The Limerick Strand Hotel won the following awards:

  • Best Hotel Restaurant Manager – Vicky Collins
  • Hotel Receptionist of the Year – Evan McMahon (a recent SCHM graduate)
  • Business & Conference Hotel of the Year 2018

General Manager, Stefan Lundstrom said, “What a great night for The Limerick Strand Hotel team! To win one award would have been amazing, but to come home with three is outstanding. We are immensely proud of our dedicated team and these awards will sit nicely with our precious current and previous accolades.”
