Mayo man Andrew Moore has been appointed as the new General Manager of the Conrad Dublin.
The Foxford-native is taking on the prestigious role at the leading hotel.
A seasoned hotelier with a hospitality career spanning more than 20 years, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his new role. Andrew is a graduate of GMIT, Galway with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Hotel & Catering Management.
After completing his college training, Andrew began his hotel career at Conrad Dublin. Over the years Andrew has climbed the managerial ladder with Hilton, a multi-award-winning hotelier working with some of the most recognised names in the industry in key destinations such as London, Belfast before venturing further afield working at the prestigious Hilton Beijing and the brands flagship Conrad Seoul, as Hotel Manager.
Steve Cassidy, managing director UK and Ireland for Hilton, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Andrew back to Ireland as General Manager of the Conrad Dublin. He brings rich experience from across the globe and most recently at our fabulous Conrad Seoul. With his drive and passion for hospitality we are excited about the future of the hotel and the amazing team under his leadership.”
Born in the USA, Moore grew up in the industry having spent most of his childhood in hotels across the states and Middle East prior to returning to his Mayo roots. Andrew is a second-generation hotelier, so hospitality runs through his veins.
He is eager to make his mark at the hotel, enhancing the luxury experience for guests, supporting the talented hotel team and ensuring the hotel offers a uniquely luxurious Dublin city destination.
“Our new owners have committed to a multimillion reinvestment programme and Conrad Dublin is set to undergo a major transformation and expansion, and I cannot wait to oversee this project. It’s great to be back in Dublin and I’m very excited for our future plans and developments.” said Andrew.
With any new job, Andrew’s work life is hectic, but he manages to balance it albeit with a toddler to entertain. A cycling enthusiast, Andrew managed to cycle the length of Korea before departing (a mere 630km in three days!), and when things settle down workwise, he’d like to find some spare time to indulge his passion for travel.
