Lough Erne Resort’s Award Winning Team Continue the Winning Streak of 2016

The management and staff of Lough Erne Resort are no strangers to picking up prestigious awards and 2016 started no differently for the multi-award winning resort.

Lough Erne Resort has collected an unprecedented number of industry awards since the turn of the New Year across a variety of disciplines to further justify its place at the top of Northern Ireland’s best resorts.

In January, the Resort picked up an ASI gold award (Irish Accommodation Services) Award for achieving excellence in accommodation standards and recently was recognized by the Northern Ireland Hospitality Federation (NIHF) as their overall winner in the over 90-room category.

In March, the hotel’s popular Executive Head Chef Noel McMeel collected the award and title of ‘Best Chef for Fermanagh’ at the Ulster regional final of the Irish Restaurant Awards 2016, not only that, the award-winning Catalina Restaurant in the heart of Lough Erne Resort was awarded ‘Best Hotel Restaurant’ at the prestigious event, where some of Ulster’s leading restaurants were recognized for their outstanding achievements.

In its eighth year, the Irish Restaurant Awards are the largest and most coveted accolade in the Irish Restaurant Industry and honour Ireland’s premier restaurants following a rigorous selection process with the final scheduled to take place next month in Dublin and hopes are high for further success.

Under the guidance of Executive Head Chef Noel McMeel, 6 members of the Catalina Restaurant team have continued in Noel’s award winning footsteps, taking three gold, one silver and two bronze awards at this year’s IFEX, Northern Ireland’s premier food, drink, retail and hospitality event, in Belfast where chefs and service staff are judged on a specific set of skills around technique, preparation and presentation in their job roles.

On the recent success of the Catalina restaurant, Noel said ‘We are thrilled with the recent achievements for Catalina and our team, there is so much passion behind the team which we bring to all the elements of our dishes, we pride ourselves on creating wonderful experiences for our guests and it’s wonderful to be recognised for our hard work.’
