Sales & Marketing Manager Carolynne Harrison said ' Christmas Party nights are sometimes the only night that work colleagues, friends, family or social groups can get out and enjoy themselves, so this is a special occasion and they want to be guaranteed Good Food, Wine, Entertainment and most of all Craic - we took all this on board and realised that our reputation for party nights has always been great, but due to the local price war, we had to offer something extra special for around the same price as last year. After much deliberation and searching for the best bands across he uk and Irleand we are confident that we are offering the best possible value and a guaranteed night to remember'.

Record Results @ Mount Errigal Hotel

The Mount Errigal Hotel is enjoying phenomenal, record results since January 2010. The hotel believes its recent success is down to a whole spectrum of reasons, some of the main ones would be as follow

  • Improving Front Line Service Staff & Overall Customer Service
  • Offering the right Product at the right time to the right person both online & offline

  • Listening to their customers feedback & acting on it religiously

  • Introducing a new Marketing Strategy online & offline with a new focus on Social Media

Basically, they identified that tough times were ahead and when Carolynne Harrison, Sales & Marketing Manager joined them back in August 2009, they pledged that they would not be defeated and their first focus would be on the 'Customer Experience', from the second they clicked on our website or called us, to booking, to arriving, to dining, to sleeping, departing and reviewing their stay. Carolynne is surprised at how big an impact some basic 'tweaking' can have on a business and they have seen the results almost immediately! She is also delighted that some of their recent customers who complained about their recent stay are now some of their most loyal - all because they made sure their complaint was dealt with professionally and empathetcally.

Some interesting successes to date...

  • July 2010 was the hotel's busiest month since the hotel opened in 1984!

  • They achieved their highest ever occupancy, even though they have 140 bedrooms, they were mostly fully booked each night!

  • Since January 2010 to today they have had more than 700% increases in online revenue & bookings

  • In May, June & July they consistently broke records in the highest ever online revenue

  • They are number 7 in Ireland top Facebook hotels

  • Their guests are staying longer, spending more and most of them will book 1/2 days in advance (short lead time)

  • According to Google Analytics, they are 100% above the average visits their competitors get to their site - meaning their website is superbly optimized

  • They have had a phenomenal upsurge in bookings from Iphone & Ipads

  • Bookassist are trialling a new 'model' where you can book a hotel directly on Facebook and The Mount Errigal is delighted to be working with them on this trial

The hotel is delighted by its recent success and hopes that everyone can feel optimistic by their recent journey, Carolynne Harrison Believes that great things are done by a series of small things brought together and she believes that is is much more important to know where you are going rather than getting there quickly!

€uro Exhange Rate Has Phenomenal Affect on Mount Errigal Hotel!

The Mount Errigal Hotel has seen record results in occupancy since it opened in 1984. The hotel puts this down to a whole spectrum of of reasons, one of which is the change in the Sterling to Euro Exchange rate. The Sterling to Euro Exchange rate is now approximately 20% which offers guests from the North of Ireland excellent value for money in accommodation, food and drink. For the same period last year (First two weeks in July) the hotel's bookings from the North was only 7% of booking, this year it has increased drastically to 70% of all bookings coming from the North - over all booking have increased by more than 400%!

Over the past 6 months, many hotel's in the South of Ireland tried to compete by reducing their rates in an effort to encourage Northern Ireland guests - many of these reduced rates and deals are still available!

One of the most popular breaks that has been booked is our 'Donegal Escape' which offers two nights B&B and 1 Gourmet Evening Meal from just €99 pps. The hotel has also seen a great difference in the packages that people are booking...last year most of the bookings for B&B only, but this year, people are booking more packages which offer the best in value.

Big Hit - One Night Delight Deal!

The hotel has seen a shockingly big demand for their newly launched 'One Night Delight' package. Since its launch in mid April, the hotel has seen a massive increase in bookings. The package was launched taking into consideration the 'culture' we live in today, we all work hard, we usually only get 1 or 2 days off every week and alot of us have kids, so this was the idea...

  • We want to cater for all the hard working professionals who have limited 'me time'

  • We want to cater for all the parents who feel too 'guilty' about leaving the kids for more than just one night

  • We know that everyone is very careful with their hard earned cash, so we wanted to offer a straight forward pacakge that included Bed, Breakfast, Dinner & Wine for around 100 euro!

We have had 'rave' reviews from recent customers who availed of the package - many saying 'It was a little slice of R&R and an even smaller slice from our monthly budget'! Think about it - at home you would probably spend that on a meal out, drinks and taxis BUT - at home you will have to make your own bed, make your own breakfast and wash the dishes!

The package includes Free Parking, Free Wifi, Free use of Leisure Centre Comprising 22m Pool, Sauna, Steam Room, Jacuzzi & Gym, Bed & Full Irish Breakfast and a 2 Course Meal with a Glass of Wine - all from just 99Euro for two sharing!

Sarah Jessica Parker Media Frenzy at The Mount Errigal Hotel!

The Mount Errigal Hotel has been at the centre of a media frenzy since Wednesday 7th April when the hotel noticed a massive surge of visitors to their site from all around the world.
Hello Magazine had done a piece on ‘Celebrity Honeymoon’ destinations. The Mount Errigal Hotel is where Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick chose to stay. We were mentioned amongst some of the world’s top 7 star destinations such as El Careyes Beach Resort – Jalisco, Mexico, where Heidi Klum stayed, Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa – Bora Bora, French Polynesia is where Nicole Kidman Stayed, Parrot Cay – Turks and Caicos Islands is where Eva Lonoria stayed and of course The Mount Errigal Letterkenny – Sarah Jessica Parker.

The results from this direct link from Hello Magazine have been phenomenal, we have had over 1000 direct clicks since the document went live on the 24th March, our online bookings have increased by 450% - we know that not all these results are directly from the write up but we are sure it has had an impact! Following the initial PR in Hello Magazine, the hotel has been on Newstalk, RTE Radio, front page of the Donegal Democrat and the Sunday Times!
Through our website over the weekend we have also had quite a few wedding enquiries….I suppose people are thinking ‘If it’s good enough for Sarah Jessica Parker its good enough for me’!

The hotel will certainly be launching an exciting package mirroring the style of Sex and the City so watch this space! We are also in the process of finalizing a new ‘Sex and the City’ style wedding package! The new 'Sex & The City - Diva's only Package' will include Cosmo's, Cupcakes & Massages - the perfect girly break!
