The IASI was founded in 1985 and its remit is to promote best practice standards across the accommodation field.
Under the watchful eye of Bernie McBrearty, the accommodation manager who is known for her exacting standards and her exceptional attention to detail, Bernie has worked at the Clanree Hotel since 2000.
