Firmly established as one of the jewels in Fermanagh’s tourism crown, Lough Erne Resort is marking a decade as one of Ireland’s leading resort destinations. Following on from one of its most successful years in business, the luxury resort is continuing its focus on hosting corporate events at the five-star venue.
The Resort, which hosted the world’s most powerful leaders at the G8 summit in 2013, recently unveiled details of a major, three-year multi-million-pound investment plan as part of its mission to strengthen and consolidate its position as one of Ireland’s leading hotels.
A preferred destination for corporate events, the luxurious Ross Suite at the Resort has undergone a six-figure redesign as part of the investment, maximising the stunning loughside location and famous views.
The bespoke room seats up to 280 guests banqueting style and features built in screens and projectors, PA and sound system for ease of use, alongside superb dining options created by award-winning Executive Head Chef Noel McMeel and his culinary team. Accessed via a private drawbridge entrance, the room can be adapted for a range of corporate requirements.
This latest project tops a year of intense activity at the Resort, with the illustrious Luxury Travel Guide Awards naming it Luxury Resort of the Year in Northern Ireland for 2016.
Recognised as the pinnacle of travel and tourism achievement, the awards champion the best of the hospitality sector.
Executive Head Chef Noel McMeel, at the helm of the highly-acclaimed Catalina Restaurant, was honoured as a Hospitality hero by the prestigious Northern Ireland Hotels Federation.
Famed for its outstanding food offering, The Catalina was also named Hotel Restaurant of the Year, scooping a trio of top accolades including best hotel restaurant, best service and best main course.
Speaking in the run up to a series of events to mark the 10th anniversary, General Manager William Kirby said the Resort looked forward to welcoming further high profile corporate events from across Ireland to the award-winning venue.
"We continue to respond to the demand for high quality, bespoke facilities for the corporate community. Lough Erne Resort is ideally placed to provide businesses from across Ireland event and conferencing space with state-of-the-art facilities in a luxury setting.”
“Lough Erne Resort’s reputation for excellence is well known, and the high-quality service that we deliver for our guests, as well as the ongoing work we undertake to ensure our unrivalled levels of expertise, are an integral part of the Lough Erne Resort experience.”
