Adare Manor is set to create 300 new jobs in Limerick - bringing the total number employed by the hotel and golf course to 350.

This comes as it undergoes major refurbishment and construction works which have been on-going for over a year. The expanded resort is set to open during the final quarter of 2017.

Limerick businessman JP McManus bought the property for close to €30m in 2014 - he revealed today that he dreams of bringing the Ryder Cup to the venue.

670 construction employees are currently working on the restoration, refurbishment and expansion of its facilities and a re-design of its golf course.

The existing Manor House will enjoy a new state-of-the-art spa, pool, relaxation area, boardroom, cinema and an expanded bedroom wing when this work has been completed.

It will begin filling these vacancies during the coming months. The roles include senior leadership positions, front office management, food and beverage management, assistant management, spa therapists, culinary team members, operational team members, including receptionists, accommodation assistants, waiting staff, bartenders, banqueting personnel and laundry assistants.

It is estimated that the revamped resort will contribute in excess of €15 million to the local economy annually.
