Hotel group launches app to grab back share from global booking sites
Hotels around the world are launching their own apps as they seek to regain control from massive global booking sites, and Ireland's hospitality industry is no different.
Hanly Castle Hotel Group, one of the country's best-known luxury hotel groups and the owners of Kilronan Castle Estate in Co Roscommon and Lough Rynn Castle Hotel in Co Leitrim, has launched its own app on iOS and Android that allows it to communicate directly with customers through mobile devices.
As well as providing a booking service the app has information on special offers, local attractions and hotel announcements.
The hotel group is offering a series of special offers to users as part of the app's launch.
