A Fermanagh hotel has won the 'Hotel of the Year' title at Northern Ireland's hospitality event of the year.

Lough Erne Resort in Enniskillen was handed the prize at the Licensed and Catering News Awards 2024, held in Belfast's Crowne Plaza Hotel on Sunday, June 9.

Judges assessed the venue through a mystery guest's inspection, with a rigorous set of winning conditions.

Bathroom renovation company Bath Fitter sponsored the category.

Manager, Gareth Byrne, said: “We are very proud of this very prestigious accolade.

“We would like to thank our ownership group Advantage Capital Partners and TRU Hotels and Resorts, as well as our management and staff, as their dedication to providing an excellent experience was paramount to winning this award.

"We would also like to thank our many cherished customers for making this happen.”

To celebrate the resort is offering a promotion including an overnight midweek stay in a newly refurbished guest room, use of the infinity pool, and a boatyard gin and tonic in The Blaney Bar.

The offer, starting at £169 per room, also gives guests access to explore the resort's scenic 600 acres.

The Resort's Catalina restaurant also recently secured the top spot in the 'Best Hotel and Guesthouse Restaurant' Ulster category at the Irish Restaurant Awards.
