Tánaiste Simon Coveney TD, Minister for Foreign Affairs & Trade, and Kerry TD Brendan Griffin, Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport, both joined Dr Isolde Liebherr to celebrate and welcome the reopening of this magnificent 5-star hotel.
Speaking at the official re-opening, Mr. Coveney said, “It is my great pleasure to open a new jewel for tourists in Ireland, in a place that is one of the jewels in the crown of our entire tourist industry. The rebirth of this hotel is a further sign of the Liebherrs’ dedication”. Mr. Griffin emphasized the event’s importance for local tourism: "This is very positive news for Kerry tourism. The Europe, The Dunloe and Ard na Sidhe hotels are some of the top hotels in Kerry and this investment builds on a strong tradition of hospitality by this hotel group."
