Lyrath Estate Hotel has been awarded a 5 Star Gold Award by the Irish Accommodation Services Institute (IASI) for the seventh year in a row, as well as being named a Supreme Award Winner.
Under the watchful eye of Murali Dharan, the executive housekeeper, Lyrath Estate has been consistently lauded by the IASI, winning 5 Star Gold Awards every year since 2007, and Supreme Awards in 2009, 2011 and 2013. Dharan has worked at Lyrath Estate Hotel since 2006. Initially he joined as deputy accommodation manager, working his way up to group executive housekeeper by December 2010.
In winning so many of these coveted awards, Murali manages a team of 6 supervisors, with an assistant manager, 4 linen porters and 32 room attendants, plus the hotel’s maintenance staff. With this team, he controls every aspect of the hotel’s physical appearance, maintaining bedrooms and public spaces alike. “I am very proud of our record in winning so many IASI Awards,” says Dharan, “we work very hard as a team to ensure every surface is spotless and gleaming, and that each detail is as perfect as we can make it, so it is rewarding to be recognised for our quest for perfection!”
