Denise joined the Great Southern team in March 2015. Originally from Sneem, her parents own a restaurant in the village so Denise has grown up immersed in the hospitality industry.
Denise studied Hotel Management at College in Dublin, halfway through her course, she transferred to Cork and got a placement at our sister hotel, Hayfield Manor. She worked in reception there and after her placement ended she decided to stay in Hayfield Manor. After a short while she was promoted into the reservations and events department before transferring to Great Southern to work in reservations there. After a year at Great Southern Denise moved into the position of Events Coordinator and was soon promoted to her position of Events Manager.
Outside of work Denise loves to travel and tries to get away as often as she can. Her favourite countries that she has visited so far are Croatia, Dubai and South Africa in particular. Next on her wish list is Las Vegas!
Denise’s favourite aspect of her job is “meeting each couple or client, getting to know them, finding out what is important to them, working with them and then finally being there on the day with them to see all the planning & preparation become reality and the joy that brings!”
