CONGRATULATIONS to Noreen O’Leary who has been appointed general manager of The Heights Hotel Killarney. Having worked at the hotel since 2001, Noreen has taken over the reins from Collette Andre O'Riordan, director and proprietor of the hotel.

Although Collette will remain involved in the business going forward, she has handed the general management of the hotel over to Noreen. "It was an obvious choice for myself and my family," said Collette. "Noreen has been with us for many years, and she has proven herself as a loyal and progressive member of the team, with a strong focus on the business needs across the board. I wish her all the best in her new role and know that she will continue to bring care and attention to our customers and to our business alike.”

Noreen, who has worked with all the members of the team at the Heights for many years, will continue to uphold the hotel’s strategy that has made it such a popular venue in recent years. “The owners of the hotel have made huge investments over the past 10 to 12 years and they have a strong vision of where they want the hotel to go,” said Noreen.

The new general manager added: "Being given this opportunity to manage a hotel such as this one is a privilege and an honour. I intend to continue the hard work that has been put into making The Heights Hotel what it is today and to focus on our vision which is to continue to expand our ever growing food operation, our successful wedding business, and to bring the hotel to four-star status by 2017.”

We wish Noreen all the best in her new role!

While Killarney made it through to the last five, in the end it was Waterford City which claimed the overall title of Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021.

While the city was the unanimous choice of the judging panel it had to beat off stiff competition from Killarney and three other shortlisted locations: Clonakilty, Co Cork, Galway city and the village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan.

Among the things which impressed the judges about Waterford were its beautiful buildings, its liveability, its pedestrian friendly public space, its weather, and its easy access to the Comeragh Mountains and the Copper Coast.

The Chair of the judging panel Conor Goodman congratulated Killarney on its fine showing in the competition.

“Given the level of entries and the extremely high standard of those entries, making it into the Best 5 Places to Live in Ireland really is a wonderful achievement which I’m sure everyone in Killarney and Kerry is really proud of. We were delighted with the level of interest in the competition and would like to thank everyone who nominated a place or who engaged with us on it.”

The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland contest, which is supported by Randox Health, began in June.

In total 470 locations were nominated by more than 2,400 people from all 32 counties for the title of ‘Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021’.
