Shelbourne Hotel Appoints New General Manager

Hospitality sector veteran JP Kavanagh has been announced as the new general manager of Dublin's Shelbourne Hotel.

Kavanagh's career in hospitality goes back a quarter of a century to when he began working at London's Connaught Hotel in 1993. This was succeeded by periods of work at The Hyde Park Hotel of Knightsbridge, The Clarence Hotel of Dublin and the Turnberry golf resort of South Ayrshire, Scotland, before he moved on to general manager positions at Edinburgh's Sheraton Grand Hotel, the Sheraton Dubai Mall of the Emirates Hotel, the Kensington Hotel of London and The Westbury of Dublin.

Kavanagh's most recent posting before moving to The Shelbourne was as general manager of Ireland's luxury sleeper train, the Belmond Grand Hibernian.
