The all-female combination of Front Office and Marketing deservedly scooped the much coveted Department Of The Year Award at the recent 4-star Hotel Westport’s own Awards evening.
The two ladies who head up the winning departments, Mary O’Reilly (Front Office) and Eithne Cosgrove (Sales & Marketing), work very closely together and were thrilled to learn that both their departments were joint winners of the Department of the Year.
The award was announced at the hotel’s annual staff party which in itself is testament to the great job that the winning teams have done for the hotel in the past year.
Speaking at the announcement, Hotel Westports’ General Manager, Declan Heneghan quipped that “they did such a fantastic job that it wasn’t possible to have our Christmas party until March” such was the great level of activity at the Hotel.
Of course, it tops off a very successful period for Hotel Westport which scooped over nine Awards in the past number of months, eight of which were National Awards.
A delighted Mary O’Reilly, Front Office Manager commented that the Georgina Campbell Family Friendly Hotel of the year award for 2013 was proving to be a major advantage
in forward selling of family Holidays to Hotel Westport for Summer 2013.
“Customers want to have independently verified confidence in the quality that they are buying she said, and the Georgina Campbell, Family Friendly award certainly does just that.”
An equally delighted Eithne Cosgrove, Director of Sales and Marketing said that the new initiatives & campaigns undertaken in recent months are now paying dividends. This, coupled with fantastic customer care and dedication of all the team throughout the Hotel and the numerous National Awards won in the past few months was a fabulous asset in assisting her and her team to market Hotel Westport and Westport, in general, both here and abroad.
