Meet the Team
At your Service
Ciara Treacy – Hotel Manager
Moved back home from Dublin to help with the family business in 2009 and has been “helping” ever since.
Ciara is a very proud Killarney woman and loves the great outdoors that is Killarney’s backdrop.
When she is out of the hotel, she can be found hiking Cardiac Hill with her dog Mylo or cycling Muckross and Dinis in Killarney National Park.
Top tip: Take an early morning stroll into the National Park across the road from the hotel and catch a glimpse of the native red deer roaming the lands. Grab a hot chocolate in Reidy’s and watch the world go by from the front window.
Eleanor O’ Doherty – Resident Manager
Eleanor has been part of The Ross team for 30 years and is mother to three girls – Catriona, Chloe and Eva. Eva is the last of the girls to do her time in The Lane Bar! Outside of the Hotel, Eleanor can be found walking in the Demense each morning with her dog Buddy.
Top Tip: Head to Bricin Restaurant in Killarney and make sure to opt for the “Boxty”.
Ian McMonagle – Head Chef
Our Head Chef Ian is a proud Mayo man now residing in The Kingdom. His passions are as you would expect, food and all things Gastronomy related – you may not know that our Ian is also a very keen golfer. And as you know, there are great places to tee off in Killarney.
Top Tip: Ross Castle in the evening with the lakes and a sunset as a backdrop is a great way to end a day in Killarney.
Roger Harman – Operations Manager
A local Muckross boy!
Roger is passionate about everything food and drink related and their delivery to the customer.
In his spare time, Roger’s interests range from playing cards with friends to yoga with Nave Yoga to golfing the Killeen course at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club and of course spending time with family.
Top Tip: Killarney and Kerry has the best hiking and hill walking trails to be found anywhere. Mangerton, Carrantuohill and “Cardiac Hill” beside Torc Waterfall is simply amazing for that “Sunday Stroll”. The steps to climb are worth it for the view. Afterwards head to Killarney Brewing Company for a some wood fired pizza and a local IPA.
David Macesic – The Cellar Restaurant Manager
David is Croatian who joined the Ross Team in 2016, working as Restaurant Manager in The Cellar.
His passions are work, music, and following the fortunes of Italian soccer giants Juventus F.C.
In his free time you will find him sunning himself and drinking the best coffee in Killarney town at Lir café just beside the hotel.
Top Tip: Flat White at Lir Café!
Cian Browne – The Lane Bar Manager
Cian started working in The Lane Bar as a Glass Collector back in 2013. From here Cian has worked his way up to Barman, Mixologist, Bar Supervisor and now has taken on the new challenge as Bar Manager. In his spare time, Cian enjoys anything outdoors, from walks in Killarney’s infamous National Park, hikes and climbs, or just to ramble around this great town.
Top tip: If you are looking for great live music, The Killarney Grand is the spot to go.
