We’re loving sassy compere Pamela Ballantine’s spring vibe! She pictured with guest speaker Catherine Fulvio (right) who runs Ballyknocken House and Cookery School in Co Wicklow. We’re heard great things about this award-winning venue so can’t wait to try it out!

The Taste of Tourism event was organised by NI Hotels Federation (NIHF) and provided businesses with an opportunity to listen to the experiences of a range of speakers, who have used food and drink to attract new customers, improve profits and enhance their reputations.

Sounds like the perfect job!
