Colm Hannon, Chief Executive Officer, Adare Manor, said: “We have had an overwhelming interest from all over the world in the major renovation and construction works taking place at Adare Manor over the past 12 months. During the construction stage over 670 persons have been employed on site with several others employed indirectly in the project.

“The major refurbishment plans are on schedule. A huge amount of care and attention has been taken to ensure that the renovations honour the building’s architectural heritage as a Neo-Gothic masterpiece and embody the hotel’s signature style, whilst incorporating the latest in contemporary luxury and technological innovations, and comfort. In addition to the Manor House, all the historical features and landmarks around the estate are also being restored and protected.”

He added: “A considerable amount of Irish people working overseas wishing to return to Ireland have expressed interest in positions at the resort. We are delighted to be able to confirm today that we are ready to take applications from suitably qualified personnel to fill these all of these 300 new positions, and would encourage individuals to submit their applications.”
