“The IGTOA Gala Irish Golf Awards is the highlight of the Irish golf tourism calendar, and we are delighted to receive this prestigious award. It is wonderful to be recognised by the travel agents, and tour operators, who rely on us throughout the year to provide an outstanding service for them and their groups.
At the Roe Park Resort, we pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our guests, and this was reflected in our recent investment. We’ve been thrilled with our achievements since then – both through industry awards, and guest feedback, and the ‘Resort of the Year’ award is the pinnacle of our success to date. We’d like to extend our thanks to the IGTOA for this award. With the 2019 Open Championship around the corner, the timing is ideal and we’re delighted to be positioned as ‘2017 IGTOA Golf Resort of the Year’ ahead of this.”
