Construction to begin on state of the art new staff accommodation at The Europe Hotel & Resort

Killarney Hotels announced plans for 4 new state of the art staff accommodation blocks at the five star Europe Hotel & Resort in Killarney, Co. Kerry. The two-story accommodation blocks will each contain 10 bedrooms, living quarters, terraces and extensive planting to enhance the surroundings.

The accommodation blocks will include 40 bedrooms, complementing the already existing staff accommodation facility for 70 employees at the hotel. Attracting staff from all over the world, The Europe Hotel & Resort is the jewel in the Killarney Hotels crown.

The €3 million construction project has been awarded to Griffin Brothers Construction, Castleisland, Co. Kerry, with construction to commence next month and with the opening planned for August 2018. The new staff accommodation will include a host of facilities including a Gym, WiFi, laundry facilities, parking, bicycle storage and extensive common areas.

“We are proud of our commitment to the comfort and well-being of our team, and with the shortage of rental accommodation on offer in Killarney, we realize the difficulty that this causes to our employees from outside of the region,” said Michael Brennan, Director of Killarney Hotels.

Not only is the Killarney Hotel Group investing in a new staff facility at The Europe Hotel & Resort but is also undergoing an extensive renovation project of the restaurant, bar, reception, public areas, car park & an extensive garden enhancement of The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens, which is scheduled to re-open on 23rd April 2018.

Killarney Hotels has always offered staff accommodation at all of their 3 properties (The Europe Hotel & Resort, The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens, and Ard na Sidhe Country House) and this additional construction demonstrates the ongoing commitment of the Liebherr family to the Killarney region.
