Dromoland Castle celebrates 50 years as a Hotel
Posted June 17, 2013
Launch of new Cookbook from renowned Resort
Dromoland Castle, Ireland’s award-winning premier luxury resort in Newmarket-on-Fergus, County Clare celebrated its 50th year as a hotel on Friday 17th May with a Gala Dinner and the launch of the ‘Dromoland Castle Cookbook’, which has been specially produced as part of the 50 year celebrations. The event was attended by local guests and many guests who have travelled from overseas.
The 5-star Dromoland Castle has seen many distinguished guests come through its doors over the last 50 years, including President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton, President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, President Nelson Mandela, Chinese President Xi Jingping, the Beatles, Mohammad Ali and Colin Farrell. The Castle is also delighted to hosts many local, national and overseas guests twelve months of the year - for afternoon tea, lunch, dinner, golf, spa treatments, falconry, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and christenings!
The special Dromoland Castle Cookbook contains more than 100 recipes hand-picked by Executive Head Chef, David McCann, who has been leading the kitchens in Dromoland since 1995. David’s style is based on a firm classical base, acquired from David’s training in some of London’s top establishments.
Speaking at the launch of the Cookbook David McCann said:
“It is something I have always wanted to do while at Dromoland and this year felt like the perfect time to write our first Castle Cookbook.”
The recipes chosen have been amended slightly in order for individuals to easily reproduce them at home. The publication is illustrated with over 100 photographs by David Crimmins featuring the food, complimented with images from the Dromoland Estate.
Commenting on the 50th Anniversary, Mr. Gavin O’Reilly, Chairman, said:
“Dromoland Castle has a rich and vibrant history and has maintained its position as a leading player in the Irish and international hotel landscape into the 21st century. 50 years in business is a significant feat in any business, but particularly so in the turbulent hotel industry. Dromoland Castle is proud to have been at the heart of Ireland’s tourism industry for half a century and to have been such a major employer in the Shannon region for so many years.”
Mr. Mark Nolan, Managing Director, said:
“We are extremely proud to have reached the milestone of Dromoland Castle’s 50th anniversary in hospitality. Over the years 5-star world-renowned Dromoland Castle has had the honour of hosting many distinguished guests and famous celebrities but our most valued assets are our longtime guests, investors and supporters, without whose continued support Dromoland Castle would not be what it is today. It has been an eventful 50 years at Dromoland Castle. We can’t wait to show you what the next
