A Few words from Guy

Dear Members of the Irish Country Women's Association,

I am thrilled and honored to introduce myself as the new General Manager at An Grianán. With over 25 years of dedicated experience, I bring a deep passion for service excellence, a commitment to fostering a warm and welcoming environment, and a strong belief in the values that An Grianán upholds.

Professional Journey: My professional journey commenced three decades ago when I began as a front desk clerk in a small hotel in South Africa. Through hard work, dedication, and a relentless pursuit of excellence, I steadily climbed the ranks, eventually leading operations at prestigious hotels and resorts both nationally and internationally. My career has taken me from bustling city hotels to serene countryside retreats worldwide, with each experience enriching my understanding of what it truly means to create memorable guest experiences.

Philosophy: My approach is rooted in the belief that each member should feel like a part of a cherished family. It aligns perfectly with the values of An Grianán, which has long been recognized for its commitment to community, tradition, and warmth. I am eager to collaborate with the wonderful team here to continue providing our members with unparalleled experiences, where every interaction is marked by genuine care and attention to detail.

Vision: In my role as General Manager, my vision for An Grianán is to transform our offerings into a true haven of Irish warmth and hospitality. I am committed to preserving the rich traditions that An Grianán embodies while infusing fresh ideas and innovations to elevate An Grianán to new heights. Whether it's hosting events, educational courses, managing the overall experience, or ensuring the utmost comfort for our members, I am dedicated to ensuring that every aspect of your visit is unforgettable.

Community Involvement: Beyond my professional life, I am deeply committed to giving back to the community. I look forward to working closely with everyone, strengthening our ties with the Irish community, and enhancing our presence as a cornerstone of Irish culture. I am genuinely excited to embark on this new journey. Together, we will continue to build on the proud traditions and values that An Grianán represents, while ushering in the future of An Grianán that will leave a lasting impression on all who cross our threshold.

I look forward to welcoming you; I am here to listen and collaborate as we shape the future of An Grianán.

Warm regards,
Guy Ferreira
