The Heights Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry has been crowned Ireland’s best hotel venue in the sixth annual Great Carvery of the Year competition. The winners were unveiled by Irish sporting hero Katie Taylor in front of a packed house at the Great Carvery of the Year Grand Final at the Herbert Park Hotel in Dublin.

Launched in 2010 by Unilever Food Solutions Ireland, Great Carvery of the Year is an all-island search for Ireland’s best pub and hotel carvery. Speaking at the final, Business Development Chef at Unilever Food Solutions, Mark McCarthy said: “This year, the standard of entry to the competition was incredible. Each year, the bar gets set higher in what has become a very exciting competition.

“All of the finalists in the competition proved to be of an exceptionally high standard in terms of food quality and service. A great carvery meal is about much more than just the quality of the food served; it’s about atmosphere, value and exceptional customer service and that’s what the Great Carvery of the Year competition is all about. I would like to thank The Heights Hotel in Killarney for their excellence in offering the best carvery on the island of Ireland.”

Now in its sixth year, the nationwide Great Carvery of the Year competition is firmly established as the premier carvery competition on Ireland and Northern Ireland’s culinary calendar.
