Long-service awards at Muckross Park Hotel

The Muckross Park Hotel & Spa held a special event on Monday to make presentations to 30 employees for their long terms of service with the business in Killarney.

There were awards for five, ten and fifteen years service and each of the recipients received a crystal trophy while those in the two longer categories were also presented with vouchers for two-night visits to a luxury hotel. “The success of Muckross Park Hotel and Spa is owed to the dedication of the team. This year alone we have won four awards; the restaurant association award of Kerry’s best Hotel Restaurant, Overall Supreme award and Gold Medal in the 5-star Hotel Category at the accommodation awards, and just last week we picked up the Pevonia Destination Spa of the year award. None of these awards would have been possible without you. Thank you for your hard work and dedication; you should all be very proud,” the Manager, Sean O’Driscoll said.
