Grainne Heads Dromoland Marketing

Dromoland Castle has appointed Gráinne O’Rourke as marketing manager.

County Clare-born Gráinne has come full circle, having first experienced a taste of the hospitality industry in her very first job at the Inn at Dromoland, when she was just sixteen. A graduate of NUI, Galway, with a Bachelor of Commerce and a major in marketing, Gráinne followed an early career path into retail sales before progressing into marketing roles within the retail and non-for-profit arts sectors.

After spending seven years promoting the very best of Irish creative talent as special projects manager for IFTA (Irish Film & Television Academy) in Dublin, Gráinne moved back down to the West and took on the role of marketing & PR manager for the Crescent Shopping Centre for a further seven years.
