Assistant Manager

“It has been my pleasure to be part of the team here at the Aghadoe Heights Resort & Spa for over 17 year.

My job is very varied and I enjoy experiencing something new every day. But by far my favourite part of my role as Assistant Manager are the people who come through our doors. It is always a pleasure to welcome new guests to Killarney and to greet our regulars who stop by on a daily basis.

There is not better part of the world to live and work, and we are particularly lucky here in the Aghadoe Heights where we can enjoy the beautiful scenery right outside our windows.”

What I love about Killarney is its closeness to nature and its breathtaking natural beauty. Here you can enjoy a different and beautiful walk every day of the year, that’s how steeped in beauty the area is.”

Reservations & Revenue Manager

“This is my 18th year working in the Reservations Department of the Aghadoe Heights Resort and Spa.

I really enjoy the variety of the job and for me the highlight is checking out the yield report each day to see how the hotel is performing. I also love the personal side of Reservations, dealing with our guests on the phone and helping them to plan their five star break away.

I love the outdoor life so I couldn’t be a better location than Kerry. Every amenity is right on our doorstep here and we are happy to share it with the hundreds of thousands of visitors who flock here every year.”

Heights Lounge Manager

“This is my 17th year working in the Aghadoe Heights Resort & Spa.

The highlight of working in the hospitality industry, and particularly here in Killarney, are the people you come across every day. I have always enjoyed meeting people for all parts of the world and working in the Aghadoe Heights can be like traveling around the world in 80 days.

While I love experiencing other cultures there is nowhere else that I would prefer to call home than Killarney. The Golf Course and the beautiful scenery are what I love most about living here.”

I work with a fabulous team and I really enjoy the last glance on the way out of a room of the finished product that will greet guests when they arrive to stay.

What I really love about being in Killarney is the location, the people here are really special. We have the pleasure of living in the place everyone wants to come visit- we are so lucky to have the views and scenery at our feet.”
