Killeavy Castle Estate - Castle Hotel of the Year 2020

- Posted on: 03/07/2020 - $itemValue.title

Killeavy Castle Estate has been awarded 'Castle Hotel of the Year at Irish Hotel Awards which comes as the hotel reopens on its first anniversary. 

Killeavy Castle Estate, County Armagh, has won the coveted All Island Award of Castle Hotel of the Year 2020 at the Irish Hotel Awards.

The Estate, which has just opened its doors for the second time in its first year, took the title after being rigorously inspected by independent assessors from the prestigious awards group. The Irish Hotel Awards recognise and reward excellence in hospitality and service across Ireland and represent one of the only awards programmes that take an island-wide approach to the hospitality industry. 

Offering guests a beautifully restored castle, boutique hotel accommodation, a stunning spa and superb cuisine with ingredients sourced from the onsite farm, Killeavy Castle Estate is the jewel in the crown of 350 acres of mixed farm and woodland in County Armagh’s stunning Slieve Gullion.

Since opening, the 45-bed boutique, luxury hotel, has received four-star accreditation from Tourism NI, been awarded the National Winner Newcomer of the Year 2020 at the Georgina Campbell Irish Food and Hospitality Awards and won Romantic Getaway of the Year and Hotel Restaurant of the Year at the 2019 Northern Ireland Hotel Awards.

Jason Foody, General Manager of Killeavy Castle Estate, said “We are delighted to have been awarded Castle Hotel of the Year at the Irish Hotel Awards. This accolade is a true testament to the hard work and efforts of all our staff, our commitment to providing excellent class customer service and the magnificent facilities on offer here at Killeavy Castle Estate.

“It’s been a strange few months but this award comes at the perfect time, as we open our doors for the second time within our first year and welcome guests to explore and enjoy the Estate once more.”

Killeavy Castle Estate opened one year ago on the 4 July, after the Grade A listed building, derelict for over a decade, was transformed following a £12million investment.
