Anne Marie Kelly is set to become the new general manager of Renvyle House Hotel in Connemara, Co Galway, as current CEO Ronnie Counihan is to retire next year after 20 years at the helm of the historic hotel and 45 years in hospitality.

A native of Co Galway, Ms Kelly has more than 30 years’ experience in hospitality. A graduate of GMIT, she has held management roles with the Copthorne Tara Kensington, The Shelbourne, Jurys Hotels, The Keadeen Hotel and The Station House Hotel in Clifden where she was GM.

She will work alongside Mr Counihan for the next two months before he steps down in January.
