Killeavy Castle located at the foot of Slieve Gullion in County Armagh has achieved a four star grading from Tourism NI.
Recently awarded the National Winner Newcomer of the Year 2020 at the Georgina Campbell Irish Food and Hospitality Awards, the luxury four-star boutique hotel, spa and wellness centre opened to the public in April 2019 following a £12 million investment.
Surrounded by three hundred and fifty acres of mixed farm and woodlands, guests at Killeavy Castle can step into a world of history and explore the castle grounds including the walled garden and café area.
Caroline Adams, Tourism NI’s Quality and Standards Manager, Commented;
“Killeavy Castle is a fantastic addition to the accommodation offering for any visitor wishing to discover more of the area. It is the perfect base for both local and international visitors to escape, retreat, relax and unwind. This four star rating now gives it a great springboard to draw even more visitors to the County Armagh area.”
“We congratulate Jason and the team on this fantastic achievement and wish them every success for their future.”
Jason Foody, General Manager of Killeavy Castle commented on the 4 star grading;
“Achieving our desired four star grading from Tourism NI, only being open seven weeks, is something that I am delighted and immensely proud of. This result would not have been attainable without the team that surrounds me every day and I am extremely grateful as a manager for their hard work and dedication that helped achieve this result.”
Jason further commented; “Killeavy Castle Estate looks forward to working with Tourism NI for the development of Northern Ireland and in particular the Ring of Gullion and making Killeavy Castle Estate a leading destination for those that holiday within Northern Ireland.”
