The Castlerosse Park Resort has appointed Mark Bowe as General Manager of the popular family friendly resort.

Mark now takes over the General Manager role from his father Danny Bowe who has announced his retirement after a 27-year tenure at the resort which emcompasses over 25,000 acres of extraordinary ecology in Killarney National Park and is home to a 120-bedroom hotel and 39 two-bedroom 4-star golf lodges and holiday homes.

Mark 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, a powerful duo operating and retaining the resort’s status as one of Ireland’s most popular destinations.

Mark, who graduated in Hotel Management at GMIT Galway in 2004, gained valuable international experience in several five star 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 home town of Killarney and the Castlerosse in 2013.

“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," Mark said.

"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.”
