Overlooking Sheephaven Bay on the coast of Donegal, the Shandon Hotel and Spa has become a choice location for visitors and celebrations. This series follows the trials and tribulations of the staff that keep the hotel running to an impeccable standard. Everything from the inner workings of the kitchen to the manager's office are revealed. 

The hotel closed in the 2008 recession but was relaunched in 2016 to great success. This is episode 3 of the series. The Shandon is steeling itself for the arrival of Storm Ophelia. It was the worst storm to land in Ireland in 50 years. The staff are taking great care to keep safety for the staff and guests a priority. We also get to see a management meeting in which customer feedback is discussed. Paula, the spa manager, has a side hustle as a rally driver and is getting ready to participate in the Harvest Stages Rally. The Shandon Hotel is one of the sponsers of the Harvest Stages Rally and hosts the drivers. See how the staff get ready for a hotel full of car fans. 

Enjoy exploring the Shandon Hotel and hear the stories of the remarkable staff that work within its walls!
