Letter from the General Manager

Dear Guest,

                     Thank you for looking at our website for the Killarney Court Hotel. I hope that you find it easy to navigate and pleasing on the eye. I also hope that the ‘BLOG’ that we are including at present is interesting for you and gives you an insight into what we are about here at the ‘Court’.

                      We decided to do the blog having seen how it can help people understand what properties are like and what makes them tick. The recepies come from our Head Chef Eric Zsabo, who operates with a good brigade of 6 chefs. I hope you try out his recommendations as they are very tasty indeed. Our ‘Day in the life’ articles are an attempt to let you see how we operate in sometimes a humorous fashion ; as we all need a bit of humour in our everyday life. I do an article each month also. I try to portray how we are here in Killarney and our unique approach to life.

I hope we are succeeding in our aim and look forward to meeting you in the future if you come and stay with us.

See you soon…….Derek Carroll.

A Day in the life of ….. the Accounts Department

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

Hi,

We are Mary and Maura, more commonly known as M&M, or more affectionately by our restaurant manager, Eamon, as “TheThe Flowers in The Attic ( upstairs in a windowless coffin).

 

When we were asked to write this, 2 of the ladies (term very loosely used) in the Sales & Marketing office as opposed to THE EXECUTIVE office said that a blog on the day in the life of the accounts office would be BLANK.

 

Our day as you can imagine is the usual day to day running of a very busy office, dealing with wages, creditors, debtors cash etc. so we are not going to go into that in any great detail, but we are busy busy busy.

We arrive to work between 8.15am and 8.45, have cup of tea and catch up with the other staff members as to what as happened over night, any new staff etc etc.

Between us we have 16 years of hard labour done, and so far so good. Which in itself is testament to the Hotel we work in, unlike so many places where staff come and go so quickly.

We also get fed and wathered at work with the odd cup of tea thrown in to keep us in our normal ever cheerful moods!! Well maybe not on a Monday!

 

Our office is like Heuston Station on a Friday, we have so many calling to us. We think that maybe invisible to ourselves, we have stamped on our foreheads, “Come to us, we can help and sort you out”.

 

So whether you come as a guest or staff you are guaranteed a fun time!
