Meet the Team at The Ross Luxury Hotel Killarney
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 Torc Mountain with her dog Max or cycling in the National Park.
Top tip for guests: 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. Try brunch in DYNE at the weekends, their chocolate chip pancakes are the best.
Eleanor O’ Doherty
Eleanor has been part of The Ross team for 30 years and is mother to three girls – Catriona, Chloe and Eva. Catriona and Chloe are part of the same The Lane Bar team and we expect Eva to join the team sometime soon! Outside of the Hotel, Eleanor can be found walking in the Demense each morning with her dog Buddy.
