Hotels group revenue up

Manor House Hotels and Irish Country Hotels have reported a 13pc increase in bed night bookings and a 20pc increase in revenue on last year.

The hotels group, which includes the Parknasilla Resort (left) among its offerings, attributed the jump to a surge in the number of overseas guests, and a €1m marketing investment.

"This has been a great year for the tourism industry in Ireland which has experienced strong growth," said group director of operations and marketing Roisin Wallace.
