Bookings on the rise for Slieve Donard
The Slieve Donard Resort & Spa has reported a 20% increase in its conference and business events.
The Co Down hotel, which is one of seven properties owned by Hastings Hotels, said the rise in business events has also boosted stay periods
Nora Hanna, business development manager of the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa said: "We have enjoyed a marked increase of 20% in our conference and business events as the hotel remains first choice for local companies and organisations from around the world including the USA and Canada.
"As part of this increase, the average number of bed-nights has increased from two to four. This is not only good news for us, but for the local economy as a whole."
The hotel's business facilities include the grand ballroom, chandelier room and six conference rooms.
