We were delighted to receive the news this week that we have been nominated in the Mayo Business Awards in the 2017 ‘Best Tourism Business Award’ category. Westport House proudly won this award last year, against some heavy competition.
In presenting the award to Westport House last year, Liam Horan for Sli Nua Careers, noted “Adapting to recent changes in the industry was a consideration and the judges have noted that this category was the subject of much debate and that their final decision was a really close call.” He continued “However, and despite experiencing some of the most challenging and ongoing unprecedented times they have known in almost half a millennium, the sheer value of this business to the local economy and the depth of what they do, stood out to the judges.”
This year’s category will be no exception as the three other nominees in the category are some of Mayo’s finest businesses. The nominees are Glen Keen Farm, The Connacht Whiskey Distillery and Pure Magic in Achill.
We will keep our fingers crossed, but would also like to wish all the other contestants the very best of luck!
What a great way to start 2018!
