Adare Manor is pleased to announce 300 new direct jobs at the resort, bringing the number of personnel employed to over 350 people. The resort will be seeking to recruit personnel for these positions over the next couple of months.

The announcement was made at a special reception attended by Ms Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mr Patrick O’Donovan TD, Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, local representatives and friends of Adare Manor.

Adare Manor has been undergoing major refurbishment and construction works for the past 12 months to enhance all areas of the resort and is on schedule to open in Q4 2017. Currently, there are 670 construction employees working daily on this restoration, refurbishment, expansion and golf course re-design project.

We are seeking to employ a wide range of suitably qualitied individuals to work at the resort, from Senior leadership team members, Front Office Management, Food & Beverage Management, Assistant Management, Spa Therapists, Culinary team of all disciplines, to operational team members, including Receptionists, Accommodation Assistants, Waiting staff, Bartenders, Banqueting Personnel and Laundry Assistants.

Recruitment for the Senior leadership team will commence immediately with a view to appointments being made by the beginning of May, and recruitment for the main body of operational team members will commence in May, with a view to team members starting work from the beginning July. The good news is Adare Manor is ready to take applications now for these positions and we would encourage individuals who are interested in working at the newly renovated five star property to apply now.

Speaking today, 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 and we plan to open in Q4 2017.

“Adare Manor is ideally situated in the heart of Adare Village, one of the most picturesque places to visit in all of Ireland, and just 25 minutes from Shannon International Airport. We expect the newly refurbished property, which will employ in excess of 350 personnel directly will attract c. 60,000 visitors annually. The property will continue to play a key role in generating revenue directly and indirectly for the local and national economy.

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”

Welcoming the 300 new jobs, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor said: “I am delighted to be here in Adare today for this great news story. The creation of 300 new jobs, following on from over 600 construction jobs during the refurbishment works, is a huge boost for Co. Limerick and the wider Mid West region. It’s also great to see the Adare Manor Resort being redeveloped, given the importance and benefit of tourism to the region. Heartiest congratulations to all concerned."

It is estimated that the resort will contribute in excess of €15 million to the local economy annually.

The major refurbishment and construction works include upgrading and restoring internal finishes, furniture and woodwork, and repairing the external stonework and windows.  The new designs by acclaimed architects, Reardon Smith, will enhance all guest bedrooms and public areas.  These renovations will 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.  We are also expanding the resort by constructing a new bedroom wing, which will add extra bedrooms bringing the total number of rooms to 104 bedrooms; while the addition of a splendid new ballroom will have the capacity of 350 people catering for events and international conferences, both will be clad in limestone, complementing the architectural detail of the original Manor House. 

World-renowned golf course designer Tom Fazio is leading the redesign of the property’s highly anticipated golf course, set to debut in September 2017, which when complete will take its place among the finest golf courses in Europe.

In addition, the existing Manor House will enjoy a new state-of-the-art spa, pool, relaxation area, boardroom, cinema and an expanded bedroom wing. The surrounding 800 acres of parkland, walled gardens and walking trails, will be enhanced for guest enjoyment.

The restoration of Adare Manor, needs an energetic team to compliment the renowned Castle and Golf Resort.  All parties are invited to register their expression of interest in their relevant departments by linking into and completing the on-line application and assessment process.

Further details on the upgrades will be made available through the Adare Manor website and social media pages during this period of temporary closure:
