AA Hospitality Awards
Often referred to as the industry’s ‘Oscar’s’, the AA Hospitality Awards (#AAHAs) is an event where many of the major players in the hospitality world can get together and recognize the commitment to excellence that so many establishments and individuals strive to provide their guests. Its continued success is testament to the strength and value of the AA brand, and the credibility our ratings bestow on a property. Winners of an AA Hospitality Award are selected in recognition of their excellence and success within a chosen category, having shown a significant improvement within the preceding 12 to 18 months.
Winners of an AA Hospitality Award are selected in recognition of their excellence and success within a chosen category, having shown a significant improvement within the preceding 12 to 18 months. Last year’s prestigious AA Hotel of the Year award
went to The Maryborough Hotel & Spa in Cork, while Cullinan’s Guesthouse & Restaurant, Park House Hotel & Restaurant, and Ardmore House B&B all scooped prizes in their respective categories.
While some of our winners are nationally renowned for their contributions to hospitality, we also champion lesser-known family-run properties. We strive to maximise the publicity received by each of our winners by leveraging our extensive contacts in the media industry and using our vast customer base to promote stand out properties.
This year, the AA will recognise the highest-achieving establishments and individuals and celebrate everything that is great in Irish hospitality in our exclusive flagship Awards ceremony on 23rd September in Dublin.
When you become a member of our accreditation scheme, we add you to our online booking facility. Our platform allows visitors to select from a list of properties based on their chosen destination, with personally inspected hotels and guesthouses appearing first in a list of available establishments. Our audience can infer if you are a Rosette holder, your rating on the star classification system, and your percentage score. Meanwhile, accredited properties can use AAHotels.ie
to showcase the very best services that they have to offer, as well as receive bookings that are hassle-free for users.
Access to the AA Database
Several times a year, we issue an online magazine to our extensive customer base covering topics such as Motoring, Home, Travel and Policy affairs. Every edition includes our much lauded ‘AA Getaways and Meal Deals’, which awards participating AA accredited hotels and guesthouses the opportunity to reach our customer base and establish their business as a key player in the Irish hospitality industry. Our e-Zines are read by a discerning audience of 20,000 people who have a promising relationship with the AA brand. Inclusion in our e-Zines is an extra benefit to our members and is a popular way to maximise exposure for your business, with no cost implication.
