The MHL Hotel Collection is delighted to announce that it has appointed Stephen O Connor as General Manager of the Limerick Strand Hotel.
Stephen O Connor, a native of Wexford and a graduate of GMIT, began his hospitality career over 20 years ago and has had held a number of operational and senior management positions in Ireland before joining MHL in 2015 as Deputy General Manager of the Limerick Strand.
Following his success in Limerick he was promoted to the position of General Manager at the Harbour Hotel Galway, which he has held since October 2016. Stephen was instrumental in the hotel’s recent achievement of its 4* Rating, and a highly coveted AA Rosette for their Dillisk on the Docks Restaurant.
Stephen will return to Limerick and take over the reins in the Limerick Strand Hotel as General Manager, where he will replace Stefan Lundstrom who is moving to the role of General Manager in another of MHL’s hotels, namely the Galmont Hotel and Spa Galway, formerly the Radisson Blu Galway.
The 4-star Limerick Strand Hotel enjoys an enviable position overlooking the River Shannon in the heart of Limerick City.
