Giltraps Pub & Giltraps Townhouse | Glamping today announced that they had received a double reason to celebrate with the announcement that both Giltraps entities have been awarded TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence. In the past eighteen months since the inception of the glamping initiative, Giltraps has gone from strength to strength, welcoming visitors and groups from all four corners of Ireland and right across the globe, with many different nationalities including in their schedule a visit to the picturesque village of Kinnitty at the foothills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains.

TripAdvisor is the world’s leading travel review website and uses the Certificate of Excellence initiative to recognise tourism service providers including accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world, that have consistently offered a quality customer experience and have been known to travellers for their efforts.

Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing at TripAdvisor, explains ‘‘the recognition helps travellers identify and book properties that regularly deliver excellent service and TripAdvisor is proud to play this integral role in helping tourists feel more confident in their booking decisions’’.

Giltraps is leading the way in glamping innovation with six Log Cabins and a Mongolian Yurt and putting customer service at the very top of the list of priorities. “Everything revolves around the guest” according to owner John Clendennen. He continues by paying tribute to the team at Giltraps and their efforts, ‘’we are very lucky to have such a great team that understand the importance of customer service, going the extra mile to ensure guests are happy and are proud of what we have to offer both at Giltraps as well as the amenities and attractions in the local area and across county Offaly’’.

Giltraps current offering includes the Pub, Coffee Shop, Townhouse Accommodation, Glamping and Bike Hire in the centre of the picturesque village of Kinnitty. The area is popular with hikers and is seeing an increasing number of visitors both through the glamping and the success of local attractions such as Lough Boora Discovery Park. Both Birr Castle Demense and Clomacnoise also prove popular with visitors and feature in Ireland’s Ancient East marketing initiative from Failte Ireland.
