Hayfield Manor Joins Travel Programme American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts

Ireland’s Blue Book has announced that Co. Cork’s Hayfield Manor has been accepted as a member of travel programme American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts.

Hayfield Manor is the only Irish property that has been accepted as a member of the programme for 2021, and joins a small collection of other Irish hotels that are already members of the programme including Co. Clare’s Dromoland Castle and Co. Mayo’s Ashford Castle.

Hayfield Manor was accepted as a member of the programme following an extensive secret inspection.

“Excellent News”

Hayfield Family Collection CEO Ettienne Van Vrede stated, “This is excellent news and very timely news for Hayfield Manor. We have applied to be part of this collection for a number of years and we are delighted to finally be selected to join the Fine Hotels & Resorts Programme for 2021, a year where we will need every possible source of new business to help us to rebuild following this pandemic.

“Hayfield Manor will be the only hotel in Cork in the programme, and it is testament to our tourism offering in Cork that American Express have identified our beautiful destination as a new demand location for their customers based on cardholder spend.

“We are so proud and appreciative of our exceptional team for achieving this accolade and for consistently delivering exceptional personal service to all our guests. It has been a very sad and difficult time for our industry over the last few months and this wonderful news could never have come at a more welcome time for us. We will start promoting the hotel for bookings from the extensive American Express global customer base from August 2020, and we anticipate welcoming many new international guests in future years that Fine Hotels & Resorts will bring to our treasured destination of Cork.”
