Castlerosse Park Resort, which encompasses over 25,000 acres of ecology in Killarney National Park and is home to a 120-bedroom hotel and 39 two-bedroom golf lodges and holiday homes, has appointed Mark Bowe as its general manager.
Bowe takes over the general manager role from his father, Danny Bowe, who has announced his retirement after a 27-year tenure at the resort. Bowe has been with Castlerosse Park Resort for 10 years, the last three of which he has been deputy general manager responsible for day-to-day operations, alongside his father.
Bowe graduated with a qualification in Hotel Management from GMIT Galway in 2004 and gained international experience in several hotels around the world, from the Kempinski Group when he was based in Germany to the Hilton Group in Australia before moving back to Ireland, where he worked with Great Southern Hotels. He broadened his experience as a food & beverage manager and also as a conference & banqueting manager in hotels in Kerry and Wexford before settling in his hometown of Killarney and the Castlerosse Resort in 2013.

Bowe commented, "I am honoured to take the reins from my father and continue the legacy he worked hard to create at the resort and within the destination town of Killarney. We've set in motion big plans at the resort, which are already under construction, to expand our offering and to bring solutions to challenges currently facing the hospitality sector, from the introduction of staff quarters to the major upgrading and refurbishment of the famed on-site Kenmare house into a luxury destination for the tourist rental market. I look forward to bringing these to life, through the busy summer season ahead, and into the future of a resort that's much-loved by those who visit."
