Great!!!
Assistant Accommodation Manager (Former Employee) –  Cong, County Mayo15 January 2020
For those that see their career in hospitality it's best place to work, lots of career progression opportunities. Great benefits including uniforms, food during the shift, lots of discounts for hotel products also holidays, possibility to relocate to another RCH Hotel which Ashford Castle is a part of.

Beautiful hotel and professional people
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Cong, County Mayo13 January 2020
You are expected to be fully dedicated to your role. It's a rural setting and most people work shift hours so can be demanding on the employee in terms of having a work, life balance.
Pros
free lunch and great training availible
Cons
short breaks and long days

Horrendous place to work
Kitchen Porter/Waiter (Former Employee) –  Cong, County Mayo16 December 2019
Avoid this place, treats employees like dirt and terrible pay. Not worth it and HR is complete waste of time. Don't apply for the job unless you enjoy being treated poorly by management.

Social but terrible
Waitress (Former Employee) –  Cong, County Mayo20 November 2019
Got paid terribly for the work you put in. It was really social, the teams are fun but the management is rude and think they're above everyone else. Everyone you work with, you live with and socialise with.

nice work place but money far too poor
receptionist (Current Employee) –  reception17 April 2019
love working here just the salary does not meet the cost off living. it is fine if you are someone who wishes to live in staff accomadation and have the perks off that but for people supporting families it is not enough

Amazing
Commis Pastry Chef (Former Employee) –  Cong, County Mayo21 June 2018
Absolutely amazing place to work. each and every person there is extremely kind and genuine. the learning gained from there is next to none. the only downside to the establishment is its location, extremely rural with not much going on around it.

like a family that can and will do anything for you
Commis Chef (Former Employee) –  Cong, County Mayo27 January 2017
i personally couldn't say anything bad about my experience working with Ashford Castle or the Red Carnation group. the management are your friends while still conducting them selfs to the highest level expected of them, and the people in the kitchen, and front of house are like your best friends, and at every chance they all try and keep the atmosphere professional and calm but with jokes and funny moments galore as always will be in life. bacicaly what in trying to say is they are like a family and they dont even try to hard every one was easy to get along with and always there if you had a rough service or bad day

Prefessional & Motivating
Assistant Financial Controller (Current Employee) –  Mayo, Ireland14 July 2015
Start at 8am, Daily Sales PDQ Rec and Cash Rec. Check Bank for payment and do Daily Bank Rec (so month end isn't as long). Create PO's for HOD's, post any Invoices that need to be posted. If its month end I would intergrat the Revenue on Great Plains, post stats and Segiments, post the stock movement in each department. Work out the Gross profit for each department.

Every Wednesday I would prepare a forecast of the up and comming revenue and the prodicated Wages. At our weekly HOD meeting we would review this and see if we need to pull back on rostered staff.

I would also be working on my P&L and Balance Sheet through the month, so to avoid a large volume of work at month end.
Pros
Free Lunches, free parking, Allowance for Accommodation, Health Insuarance & Pension
Cons
Long Hours at month End (to be expected with Accounts)
