One local hotel is entering an exciting new chapter as the hotel re-emerges from the forced COVID closure with the appointment of an experienced Michelin starred chef.

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.

EXCITEMENT

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.

"I have a passion for cooking with local, seasonal ingredients and a huge appreciation for the exceptional suppliers available to me here in Kerry. My goal is to provide amazing food experiences for our guests and the fantastic local business the hotel caters for. "
