The Killarney Park, who recently were ranked number one in the Top 25 Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice 'Best of the Best', has appointed Sean Doyle - who has worked at Michelin starred restaurants - as Head Chef.

“It is with great delight and pride that we welcome Sean to our team at The Killarney Park,” Niamh O’Shea, General Manager, said. “Sean brings a wealth of experience to the role, after years in some of the finest restaurants in Ireland and London.”

Originally from Killarney, Sean retains a special love for his home town and for The Killarney Park having started his culinary career here.

Sean honed his skills over the years working at the Park Hotel Kenmare, Merrion Hotel Dublin and rose to Junior Sous Chef at Michelin starred Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud.

In May 2016 Sean was invited to join Derry Clarke and the culinary team at L’Ecrivain, Dublin and in January 2018 assumed the Head Chef position there. During Sean’s time at this very popular Dublin eatery he retained the Michelin star accolade year after year.

Sean has expressed excitement about his new position.

“I can not wait to return to The Killarney Park, it is a privilege to work in one of Ireland’s leading five star hotels and also live in my home town," he said.

He came dashing through the town on Saturday night and packed streets greeted him with huge excitement.

Yes, that’s right – Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule and arrived to town for the annual switching on of the Christmas lights and magic parade.

The streets were lined with children and their families and they’d huge smiles on their faces when they spotted the man in the red coat making his way around the town on the colourful float.

Grace O’Hare was pictured with her dad Conor – she had the best seat in the town to watch Santa Claus as she was perched high on her dad’s shoulders.

It was the same for the Patterson family, Alex, Irene, Catherine and Robert, while Parade safety steward, Marie Brosnan-Leahy, was on hand to make sure everything went off OK.

Killarney Municipal District Councillors, Cllr Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan, Cllr Donal Grady, Cathaoirleach Killarney Municipal District Cllr John O’Donoghue, Cllr Brendan Cronin, Cllr Marie Moloney, also enjoyed the occasion while the Sam Maguire took pride of place and centre stage in Killarney for the annual fun filled event.

And while he was in town Santa took some time off to have a chat with Killarney Advertiser columnist Marie Carroll-O’Sullivan – check it out on page 14 of this week’s edition.
