CASTLE LESLIE ESTATE once again was a winner at the 2019 Gold Medal Awards held in association with Hotel & Catering Review magazine. We triumphed at the 31st Annual Gold Medal Awards, winning the hotly-contested Gold Medal People’s Choice Award for Ireland’s Favourite Place to Stay, for the third year in a row.
Run by leading hospitality industry magazine, Hotel & Catering Review, and judged by an independent jury of experienced hospitality practitioners, the Gold Medal Awards are widely regarded as the most prestigious and coveted awards in the business. A total of 31 category awards were presented at this year’s gala ceremony in the Lyrath Estate Hotel, Kilkenny on 24th September, which was attended by over 400 leading hoteliers, restaurateurs and caterers from across Ireland.
Running for 31 years, the Gold Medal Awards are intensely competitive, drawing entries from hundreds of hotel, restaurant, guesthouse, club, spa and catering businesses every year. Each entrant is rigorously assessed for this category by the public and members of the Gold Medal Awards Jury.
On receiving the award, our CEO, Brian Baldwin said:
“I couldn’t be more proud! To receive this award for the third year in a row is a fantastic achievement. The team at Castle Leslie Estate is what makes this all happen. Without their hard work and their commitment to each and every guest to make their experience magical, this simply would not happen”.
