Iris Houston Takes the Lead as Our Female General Manager

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, we have some exciting news to share with you all. It’s a story of empowerment, leadership, and breaking barriers right here in our beloved Adair Arms Hotel.

Allow us to introduce you to Iris Houston, our recently appointed General Manager and a shining example of female leadership. With her appointment, we’re not just welcoming a seasoned professional; we’re embracing a new era of inclusivity and diversity at the heart of our hotel.

Iris isn’t just your run-of-the-mill manager; she’s practically grown up in the Adair Arms Hotel, starting off as a Function Waitress back in the mid-90s. Her familiar face and warm smile have made her well-known to locals, creating a sense of home for all who walk through our doors. Iris embodies McKeever Hotels ethos of “we do more,” by consistently going above and beyond to exceed expectations and create unforgettable experiences for our guests.  She has dedicated herself wholeheartedly to every aspect of hotel operations, showing passion and unwavering commitment to each role as she climbed the ladder step by step, resulting in her appointment as General Manager.

As we honour the achievements of women worldwide on this special day, we couldn’t be more proud to have Iris leading the charge here at the Adair Arms Hotel. “The hotel is like a second home to me,” Iris says. “I’ve seen it all – from bustling wedding receptions to quiet Sunday brunches. There’s something special about this place that keeps drawing me back.”

But Iris’s appointment isn’t just about breaking glass ceilings – it’s about recognising and celebrating the invaluable contributions of women in the hospitality industry and beyond.

Of course, Iris isn’t alone in her journey. Here at the Adair Arms Hotel, we’re a tight-knit family, united by our shared love for hospitality and our commitment to creating unforgettable experiences for each and every one of our guests. With Iris leading the way, we’re excited to continue raising the bar and exceeding expectations every step of the way.

And let’s not forget the incredible women who have shaped our hotel’s legacy over the years – from our dedicated staff to the inspiring women who have graced our doors as guests. Today, we celebrate you and all the remarkable women who have made a lasting impact on our lives and our community.

So here’s to Iris, our fearless leader, and to Adair Arms Hotel, our cherished home in the heart of Ballymena. As we start this new chapter together, we’re filled with excitement and gratitude for the journey ahead. Here’s to many more years of warmth, laughter and unforgettable memories made at Adair Arms Hotel.

Happy International Women’s Day, from all of us here at the Adair Arms Hotel!
