Recognised as a brand leader, the Gleneagle Group, founded in the heart of Killarney in 1957, is a long established and successful Irish Hospitality and Leisure Group.
We currently manage six large full service hotels (three of which we own), together with a number of proprietary business units. Our reputation is further enhanced by a number of accredited “firsts” in Irish tourism. In addition to already attaining numerous industry awards and accolades, we have just added the prestigious EFQM certification for service excellence to the list.
Over the last number of years the Group has gone through a significant change programme. We have recruited and replaced staff at both director and senior management level and invested heavily in a new central reservations system and the latest IT platforms.
We currently manage and operate under a number of strong brands which complement the relevant properties. We also own a number of branded festivals including Ireland Bikefest Killarney, Folkfest Killarney, Killarney Beerfest and Killarney Walking Festival, amongst many more.
Among our domestic and internationally recognised proprietary assets, is a 2,500 seated auditorium. The popular INEC brand is used to promote concerts and other entertainments and our Killarney Convention Centre (KCC) brand promotes large conference usage. We believe these highly recognised brands will contribute considerable added value when quoting for new conference business in new property.
Other in-house facilities include teams dedicated to designing and monitoring website content; a call centre team committed to revenue optimisation, integrated bookings; conference; entertainment and events platforms. These are staffed by full time professionals in their particular fields of leisure; event management; publicity and concert promotions.
