Carrick Cineplex was awarded Best Cinema Experience at the 2019 Irish Hospitality Awards in Dublin this week.
The awards acknowledge hospitality businesses around the country that have stood out from the rest due to their dedication to customer satisfaction.
The winners are initially nominated by members of the public then judged by an independent panel, beating stiff national competition to claim the top spot.
Over 300 of elite professionals gathered at the Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport Hotel, on Monday, March 25 to celebrate their achievements, in a memorable ceremony put on to recognise the growth of the country’s hospitality industry.
The winners, who are initially nominated by members of the public then judged by an independent panel, are a true reflection of the hard work, quality and impeccable customer service that is offered in the hospitality industry.
The prestigious event was hosted by the best-selling author, Andrea Hayes. She welcomed on stage talented individuals and businesses, recognised for the efforts they put into ensuring that their guests enjoy themselves. The awards provided a platform to thank those who constantly deliver memorable experiences to their clients as well as those who make the country a friendly place for visitors.
A spokesperson for the Irish Hospitality Awards 2019 said: “The hospitality industry has grown significantly over the years and this has introduced new challenges to the professionals who work within the sector. The customer expectations have been increased but these winners are the experts in meeting their customers’ needs and demands in the best possible way.
“The awards aimed to thank those who make a huge contribution to enhancing the country’s tourism and reputation, whose work often remains overshadowed.
“We would like to congratulate all winners and finalists for their amazing achievements.”
