At the 2010 Milwaukee Irish Fest, Megs Downey Martin, from the Irish Hotels Federation, and the DownHill House Hotel in Ballina, County Mayo, took some time to speak with us regarding the current state of the Hotel Industry in Ireland, and what you should think about when booking a hotel or guest house for your next Irish stay.
The term zombie hotel comes up briefly in the interview. Because of the increasing impact of zombie hotels in Ireland, we thought it would be a good idea to provide a bit more information about the zombie hotel issue, prior to the start of the interview.
