After the announcement that Adare Manor will be opening this fall, it has appointed Paul Heery as general manager. The announcement comes as the castle hotel enters its final refurbishment phase.
In his 20 years in the industry, Heery has spent time as the GM of The Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland, where he was responsible for all hotel operations on the private Perthshire estate, hotel operations manager at The Connaught Hotel in London, and deputy general manager at the Merrion Hotel in Dublin.
His career in the luxury hospitality industry began in his native County Dublin in the mid-90s at the five-star Sheen Falls Lodge in Kenmare. Heery also held managerial positions in luxury hotels across the world, including Montreux Palace (Montreux, Switzerland) and The Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco, New York, and Georgetown.
A passionate golfer, Paul became familiar with the award-winning facilities at Gleneagles in his spare time and will be an additional asset to the golf course at Adare Manor.
Adare Manor closed its doors in January 2016 for an almost two-year. Most notably, the expansion will include a new 42-bedroom wing, an expansive ballroom with capacity for 350 guests, a La Mer spa, and a complete revamp of the golf clubhouse and comprehensive redesign of the golf course.
