Tourism employs almost 250,000 people.  Hotels, restaurants and bars are the major employers within the Irish hospitality sector.  Hotels in particular offer many career opportunities in operations, line management, marketing, human resources and in ancillary activities such as spas and leisure centres.

Tourism also includes visitor centres, corporate and event catering, clubs, sports arenas, airlines, Internet cafes, adventure centres and reservation centres.  Some 6,000 new employees are needed every year to service the expanding hospitality and tourism industry, according to Failte Ireland, the national tourism development.  For more information see
