Francis Brennan, Guest Critic
Francis Brennan is the Proprietor of the 5-star Park Hotel in Kenmare. The General Manager of the hotel is Francis’ brother John, who also starred with him in the RTÉ1 series ‘At Your Service’, based on the hospitality industry.
The son of a grocer, Francis learned a great deal about good customer relations as he grew up and it seemed natural that he would work in the service industry and when he was just 15 he took his first job in one of the first pubs that served food in Ireland, ‘The Step Inn’ in Dublin.
He started working in the Park Hotel in 1979 and under his stewardship, he has garnered awards from all over the world.
