Moville Boutique Hostel Takes Double Victory at Hotel Awards

Creative Oceanic are delighted to announce the winners of the Hotel Awards Ireland 2019.

The event welcomed over 110 guests at the Dublin Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown Hotel, on Monday 21st of October in a celebration of the Irish hotel sector.

The awards acknowledged the true value of hotels that lie within the heart of our local communities in Ireland and recognised the importance of hotels, how they help drive tourism by offering visitors exceptional hospitality and a unique Irish experience.

The Hotel Awards Ireland recognised all hotels, guest houses, B&B’s and more: from independently owned local businesses, to chain hotels who have made their mark on Ireland and beyond. The awards look to give a platform to these hotels from which to voice their admiration and loyalty to the hotel of choice.

The awards were hosted by the author and presenter, Pat O’Mahony who announced the winners of each category on the night. He welcomed on stage the finalists of each category who go above and beyond for the hospitality sector and provide guests with an unforgettable stay and experience.

The competition was fierce but Moville Boutique Hostel won the Best Boutique Hotel in Ulster category and then went on to win Best OVERALL Boutique Hotel in Ireland and took the trophy home.

Manager, Cressida Canavan said: “We are absolutely delighted with our win as Best Boutique Hotel in Ulster and Best Overall Boutique Hotel in Ireland! Our team at Moville Boutique Hostel work tirelessly in providing excellent experiences for our guests and so we are honoured to have been nominated among some of the best in Ireland. Winning this award as a hostel means the absolute world to our team here, we are excited to see that our hard work and dedication is paying off. We recently appeared on RTE One’s ‘Raised By The Village’ so this award is another fantastic achievement for us at Moville Boutique Hostel.”

“We are more than a hostel here, we are a home away from home, we are a community, we are a team, we are a family and that has made all the difference. We are excited for the future as we continue to innovate and grow our business in our corner of Inishowen in beautiful Donegal.”

A Spokesperson for The Hotel Awards Ireland 2019 said: “These awards have just celebrated their 1st year and are well on their way to becoming a stable event in the country’s business calendar. The event provided an excellent platform for networking and marketing for all hoteliers present to celebrate each other’s achievements of the hotel sector.”

“Many of the finalists have spent years dedicated to the industry and we are delighted that their efforts have been recognised and celebrated. We would like to thank the public for their overwhelming support and congratulations to the winners for their huge achievements at the ceremony.”
