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 a portfolio of four hotels (three of which we own), as well as self-catering holiday accommodation and the Gleneagle INEC Arena. The Gleneagle 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 contribute considerable added value when quoting for new conference business in any property in our portfolio.
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 hold EFQM certification for service excellence. In August 2015, in a new departure for us and a first in the Irish accommodation sector, we embarked on a mission to make our properties an accessible, welcoming and supportive environment for everyone. Since then, we have achieved much but there is always more to do. We are fully committed to continuing our multifaceted approach of making structural improvements, revising operational procedures and investing in staff training. Our mission is not only to be the benchmark for the Irish hospitality industry, but also to become the world’s leading hospitality provider providing universal access for everyone.
We also own a number of branded festivals and run a series of conferences internally, including Ireland Bikefest Killarney, Killarney Economic Conference and the Cyber Security Transatlantic Policy Forum, amongst many more.
