Ireland’s hotel sector has shown remarkable resilience over the past few years during the economic crises. Despite a reliance on British visitors for revenue, the year 2016 proved to be a turning point for the sector, thanks to rising numbers of tourists from the rest of Europe, North America and Asia. There are plenty of shortages in the skills that jobs such as hotel chefs as the industry is on the rise again.
