Meet Monica Dunne – Awarded Leader Of The Year

At PREMIER SUITES, we realise the value of our people. We have space, facilities and comfort within our serviced apartments in Dublin, but these only go so far without a warm welcome from our friendly and efficient teams. Each team member contributes to the smooth running and the unique atmosphere within PREMIER SUITES, something noticed by each guest who stays here. We recognise our best and brightest at the annual PREM Ovation Awards and we were delighted that our Duty Manager, Monica Dunne was recognised as Best Leader this year. While we would love to individually recognise each team member for their hard work and dedication, we’re here to celebrate the brilliant Monica for her outstanding leadership within our Team.
