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 Lane Café 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.
Top Tip: Head to Bricin Restaurant in Killarney and make sure to opt for the "Boxty".
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.
Patrick is a native of Elphin, Co. Roscommon, and in his other career as a talented musician he first came to Killarney through touring with his band. He came to work in The Ross as a Mixologist in 2013 as part of his college placement through Athlone IT; and his aptitude led to him being promoted to Bar Manager in January 2015. He enjoys creating new cocktails, testing new recipes to see what could well be the next big tipple and is the expert in our new Pink Lounge.
Top Tip: Check out the local bars and INEC for top acts, and also head to Killarney Grand, where on Tuesday nights during the season you can see "Deuces Wild", who cater for every musical taste!
Miriama has been living in Killarney for ten years, and is a native of Slovakia. She previously was employed in our sister property The Killarney Park Hotel and made the move to The Ross in April 2015 as the Duty Manager. In her spare time Miriama enjoys cycling, running, hiking, fishing and all things fitness and sport related - no surprise that she has completed the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle and the Killarney Marathon many times!
Top Tip: Killarney and Kerry has the best hiking and hill walking trails to be found anywhere. Mangerton, Carrantouhill and "Cardiac Hill" beside Torc Waterfall is simply amazing for that "Sunday Stroll". The steps to climb are worth it for the view.
