Accommodation Manager, Hakeen Lawal said of the award, “Lawlor’s is like a second home to me and the staff are practically family. The hotel’s pride is our pride and it’s an honour to be representing an establishment of such unique quality. I truly believe there’s no better stay than Lawlor’s where the staff are passionate about delivering the highest quality of experience for their guests. Hopefully this award is just the first of many in this new chapter for Lawlor’s.”
