Dunraven Arms Hotel is to run a project for transition year students to get them involved with the hospitality industry.

Due to Covid-19, transition year students in Limerick have been unable to go on work placement as they normally would. Dunraven Arms usually take in several TY’s on their placement and they felt their absence this year.

“Normally every year we would have several students on placement which would give them a nice insight into the hospitality industry and a little bit of practical training” said proprietor Louis Murphy.

“This we find is a great way of getting students interested in the hospitality industry and we find a student or two every year decide to pursue a career in the industry”.

To combat this issue they have decided to bring the hospitality to the students.

The Dunraven Arms are ready to host several training modules all via Zoom for transition year students over the course of several days. They are working in conjunction with the Shannon College of Hotel Management to deliver this project.

They will deliver three modules to the students, each an hour long and over the course of three days.

They have already 140 students signed up for the modules and each student who participates will receive a certificate of participation.
