Four Kerry hotels - including three in Killarney - have made the list of top five hotels in Ireland.

TEAM EFFORT: Management and staff at the Ballygarry Estate Hotel and Spa in Tralee are celebrating after being named the second-best hotel in Ireland on Tripadvisor.

Each year Tripadvisor selects 25 out of 833 hotels in Ireland and ranks them by Travellers' Choice.

The Old Weir Lodge, Muckross was named as the number one hotel in Ireland following the Travellers' Choice rankings.

Management and staff at the Ballygarry Estate, Hotel and Spa in Tralee are celebrating after being named the second-best hotel in Ireland following a Tripadvisor survey.

The Killarney Park and the Cahernane House Hotel were ranked fourth and fifth respectively.

Also in Tripadvisor’s Annual Awards, Loch Lein Country House was ranked number one in Ireland in its Top Small Stay’s Hotel Category.

These awards recognise “intimate hotels that make big impressions”. A family run hotel, this four star property is nestled into a natural landscape with stunning views across Loch Lein and the McGillicuddy Reeks.

This award is based on traveller’s reviews and ratings posting on Tripadvisor throughout 2021.
The country house was called an “absolute gem” and “an enchanting small hotel in a perfect locale”.

Furthermore it has been ranked in this category as number seven in Europe and No 18 in the world.

“We are beyond happy to have received this award and it is a testament to the wonderful and loyal staff here at Loch Lein particularly in light of the crushing impact COVID-19 has had on our industry,” said proprietor Paul Corridan.

She is best known for promoting the county’s GAA news – and now Leona Twiss has been rewarded for her efforts.

The Gaelic Games Writers’ Association named Leona as its Public Relations Officer of the Year at an awards ceremony at Iveagh Gardens in Dublin on Friday night last.

Leona has been the PRO for Kerry GAA for the last five years but will have to step down this year due to County Board rules.

“I was speechless, it was wonderful to get PRO of the Year but I am only as good as the team around me and this success is attributed to the hard work of the entire PR team at Kerry GAA,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

As well as her busy schedule managing the media affairs for the Kerry County Board, Leona is also principal at Cullina National School in Beaufort.

On the eve of the final of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, President Zelensky said “Ukrainians need victory – big and small”.

That is why Ukrainians who gathered around the world on Saturday night were waiting for Ukraine’s win in the song contest, just like the victory in the war.

The Ukrainians from the Innisfallen Hotel were waiting for that too and the overall winner, Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra, caused a real emotional storm in the hall!

“After my country’s victory at Eurovision, I felt proud, cried, laughed and couldn’t believe it. I am also grateful to everyone who voted for us, because this victory shows how much most European countries support us,” Iryna Melnychuk said.

“Voting around the world for Ukraine gives us hope for support from the world community not only in the Eurovision Song Contest,” said Stepan Krasnenkov.

The Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra received the highest number of points from the audience during the entire existence of the competition: 439 points from the audience, 192 points from the professional jury. In the end – 631 points, which brought Ukraine victory.

Also, thanks to the Kalush Orchestra, the whole world now knows about the humanitarian catastrophe in Mariupol and the Azovstal enterprises, where wounded Ukrainian soldiers and civilians are under blockade without food, water and medicine.

After their performance, Kalush Orchestra addressed the audience from around the world with a request to save the defenders of Mariupol, who are at the Azovstal plant.

“Please help Ukraine, Mariupol! Help Azovstal! Right now!” – the band called.

After these words, search queries for Azovstal and Mariupol took off on the Internet as people were looking for what they meant.

Irish Eurovision contestant Brooke also sang it and the whole world sings the song of the winners ‘Stefania’.
