Celebrating their 21st Birthday this year The Landmark Hotel on the waterfront in Carrick on Shannon has been the venue for many special days in communities all around the region and beyond.
From weddings to functions as well as business it has seen it all over the last 21 years.
General Manager Matthew McDonagh and Wedding Sales Manager join Breifne to discuss the history of the hotel and some of the exciting developments and directions ahead for the business.
Currently the riverside venue is facing a challenge with the rising water levels of the River Shannon and ensuring that it’s business as usual as the waterway inches closer to the building but Matthew talks about the contingency planning around that amongst the owners and management of the hotel.
Denice shares the privilige of greeting a newly married couple on their big day and ensuring that the smallest details go to plan around that massive once off event in people’s lives.
Matthew speaks about the impact that the hotel has on the surrounding area in terms of tourism but also that the area has on the workings of the hotel and the innovations that have been implemented by the hotel in terms of facilities, entertainment offerings and much more.
