From buddy systems to trainee management programmes, training is at the forefront in developing our business and helping our team to progress to the next level.

The course is suitable for those wishing to embark on a career in hospitality.  A benefit is having Dromoland Castle just next door, ensuring our trainee managers receive a well rounded knowledge of both 3 and 5 star properties.

L&D Officer:

We are delighted to announce that we have a Learning and Development officer on site to oversee training within the hotel and to develop training pathways for each department.


Hospitality is busy, busy, busy, it can be tough finding time to sit down to complete training. With this in mind, we have invested in online training platforms (Dulann) to deliver all of our compliance training, to give our teams flexibility to arrange training time around the working day.
