The Abbey Hotel team are singing ‘Viva Las Vegas’ this week after winning a once in a lifetime trip to a major event in Las Vegas.
The Donegal Town hotel was awarded Coca-Cola HBC’s coveted prize to visit The Nightclub and Bar Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center this year.
The show is America’s most influential gathering of bar and nightlife professionals. The Abbey Hotel is Donegal’s first ever winner of Coca Cola’s competition to send Irish representatives to the innovative expo.
Bar Manager Andrew Quinn and Sales & Marketing Manager Elaine McInaw will have their flights, accommodation and event tickets covered, thanks to Coca Cola.
The Abbey Hotel established in the 1940s with the Abbey Bar established in 1948. It soon became renowned as the No 1 entertainment hub in the Northwest.
It’s a meeting point renowned for top entertainment including Saturday Rock Nights, Country Music Weekends as well as traditional sessions throughout the year in addition to great food and delicious cocktails in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Guests can choose between bars over 3 floors including Sky Nightclub.
The hotel is home to the Market House Restaurant famous for its “Steak on the Stone” and speciality gins from the wine and gin bar.
The hotel has always been a proud sponsor of local clubs and sports teams with a strong association with Donegal GAA. One of the hotel’s proudest moments was when the Donegal Team returned to the Abbey Bar in 1992 with the First Donegal All-Ireland Cup. The Abbey Hotel was famed throughout Ireland and became known as the Home of Donegal Football where teams and supporters have been returning ever since.
Speaking on the latest award, a hotel spokesperson said: “We are thrilled that we have won Coca-Cola HBC’s popular Christmas incentive for hotels, restaurants and catering customers, such a prestigious prize with flights, accommodation and tickets to one of the world’s most influential gatherings of bar and nightlife professionals at the convention in Las Vegas and to be the National Winners of the Competition with Coca Cola bringing this prize to Donegal, another first for Donegal.
“Our present owners bought the hotel in the 1990’s and have invested heavily in the hotel.
“We pride ourselves on our friendly professional service and warm Donegal welcome and are very proud to carry on that tradition with Coca Cola as a Premium Brand.
“It says a lot when two well- known and successful companies can come together and have a mutually beneficial working relationship which helps both parties to further their business interests.
