There was a great celebration on Tuesday evening – 43 years of Coyne family hospitality in Killarney – on the balcony of the International Hotel.
A team of chefs were flipping burgers and basting wings in glorious sunshine, while a Tom Cruise style mixologist was giving it large on the cocktails.
Overlooking Kenmare Place and Killarney House was definitely the perfect setting to celebrate 43 years of Coyne family hospitality in Killarney, and the sun shone on all the staff, family and friends joining in the festivities.
Established as a hotel in 1906, the International Hotel came under the stewardship of Sean and Frankie Coyne in 1976 and they are very proud of the team that continue to make the hotel as popular with visitors today as it has been for more than a century.
“Frankie and I are delighted to still be here after all these years and that this Grand Old Lady is still doing what Killarney is famous for, welcoming visitors,” Sean, who enjoyed the day immensely, said.
Guests on the evening included many of the staff, past and present, and friends who wished Sean, Frankie and their families well for the season ahead, and the years to come.
