John Kelly from RAM Org gives more details – “You know that feeling you get when you arrive somewhere new and it already feels like a pretty special place? Well that’s the feeling we got when we arrived at Lough Erne for the first time! We’d heard a lot about it and had met the awesome Director of Sales John O’Neill, on a few occasions, but nothing really prepares you for the actual arrival – it’s that good!”
“The whole location feels like Vancouver Island (just without the city elements and the 9 hour flight), think lots of islands, inlets and water based activities. The water of course means that the land around here is fertile and perfect for local produce, in fact there’s actually an island on the lough populated solely by pigs, it’s where Head Chef Noel McMeel gets all his pork from and having tasted it I can assure you it is amazing, you can see more here
, Noel is a true gentleman and passionate about food, if groups are into their gastronomy then Noel will meet them and add something really special to your event!”
“In fact that’s the attitude that really drew us to the resort; nothing is too much trouble and they’re all happy to go that extra mile to make a difference, it’s a trait we’ve seen with Visit Belfast and it’s hugely evident here! We found it with everyone in the hotel from Andrew the General Manager to the guys in the fantastic Spa, nothing was too much trouble! It’s easy to get to as well, just over an hour from Belfast and about an hour and half from Dublin, so it makes access simple too.”
We simply can’t recommend this property enough especially for incentives where your guests will be treated like world leaders – oh did we mention that it hosted the G8 in 2013, so these guys can do discretion, security and WOW!! Just ask our friend John, he’s seriously well connected and knows all the best places, whether for a pint, an exclusive barbecue on the lake or where President Obama can park his Black Hawk helicopters (he brought seven of them)!
John O’Neill from Lough Erne gives his thinking behind the decision to choose RAM Org – “RAM Org came highly recommended by the team at Visit Belfast, I’d also met John Kelly a few times and I could see how passionate he could be about something he believes in. It was an obvious choice with their level of creativity and appetite to bring M&E business to the property. We’ve got lots planned for this year to really put Lough Erne on the map for UK bookers.”
