We’re in celebration mode after a gala night at the Virgin Media Gold Medal Awards where our general manager Jennifer Howley carried home the bronze award in the prestigious Ireland’s Tourist Hotel of the Year category. The other award winners were both from the tourism capital of Killarney and we were proud to see Enniscrone named alongside it. We were finalists in an amazing seven categories which is the most we’ve ever been in. This is just the latest in a series of awards we’ve won over the last couple of years.
“I’m thrilled for the whole team”, said Jennifer Howley after accepting the award, “We have a wonderful group of people who really pull together to make sure people enjoy their stay with us and it’s lovely to get this national recognition for all that they do”.
This is the 34th year of the Awards which are recognised as the leading independent awards programme for the Irish hospitality industry. Judged by industry experts, the Virgin Media Business Gold Medal Awards reward excellence in hospitality and catering operations across the island of Ireland. The winners were announced at a glittering awards ceremony hosted by Anton Savage at The Galmont Hotel & Spa in Galway.
At the Ocean Sands we are constantly upgrading and developing our hotel to make our guest experience even better. Our latest is a refurbishment and extension of the Atlantic Room beside the Ocean Bar and Restaurant with magnificent view of Atlantic waves and the long sandy beach. It’s going to be an exciting new addition to our wedding offering. There’s always something happening at the Ocean Sands!
