Kelly's heroes are tops
In these recessionary times, the difference between success and failure is often down to hotel staff themselves.
Long a favourite with Dubliners, Kelly's Resort Hotel & SeaSpa has it all -- an infinity pool, top spa, fine dining, sports activities and cosy bars.
But often it's the warmth of the welcome -- and the in-depth knowledge of the local staff -- that will live longest in the memory.
Now the hotel's success and professionalism has been rewarded as it has won the Georgina Campbell's Hotel of The Year 2011 prize, with owner Bill Kelly and his team (above) in celebratory mood.
"As always, it is our dedicated Kelly's team that are the true winners here," said Bill Kelly.
And he said that it's never been a better time to experience its hospitality, with a special deal just announced for the month of November.
Guests can stay overnight midweek and enjoy dinner and breakfast for €110 per person sharing or extend their stay to two nights' full board for €250 per person sharing. There's also a five-day full board midweek offer at €520.
Included in the packages are full activity programmes for adults and children, complimentary tea and regular coffee, complimentary weekly golf clinics, Kelly's afternoon tea and cakes, plus nightly entertainment. For details call 053-9132114 or see www.kellys.ie
