THE Slieve Donard Resort & Spa has reported a 20% increase in its conference and business events.
Nestling at the foot of the Mountains of Mourne it is well known as one of Northern Ireland’s finest conference hotels boasting an extensive choice of banqueting and conferencing suites suitable for events of all sizes.
Nora Hanna, business development manager of the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa said: “We have enjoyed a marked increase of 20 per cent in our conference and business events as the hotel remains first choice for local companies and organisations from around the world including 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.
“When we secure business events, especially residential conferences, the delegates have a busy itinerary including dinners and visits to the local tourist attractions which has a positive economic impact for Newcastle and Northern Ireland,” Nora continued.
“We work closely with event organisers to help ensure all their requirements are met and can assist in arranging team building activities with the local outdoor activity centre which offers everything from coasteering to bouldering, field archery and mountain biking – ultimately adding to the overall experience,” Nora added.
The Slieve Donard Resort & Spa offers the magnificent Grand Ballroom which is one of the largest function suites in Northern Ireland and the Chandelier Room which boasts stunning views over the mountains.
In addition to this, business guests have the choice of six conference rooms within the purpose-built Centenary Conference Centre.
