Global hospitality software business Guestline is expanding its European operations by opening its first offering in Ireland.
The company has opened the doors of its Dublin-based office and appointed a country manager.
The decision to enter the Irish market marks the beginning of European expansion for the UK business, whose operations are spread across the UK and Asia.
Hospitality professional Clio O’Gara joins the property management, channel distribution and digital marketing business as country manager for Ireland, and is responsible for driving growth.
O’Gara said: “This is an exciting time for Guestline and Ireland’s incredible hospitality industry. There are so many opportunities to harness.”
James Cannon, head of international development at Guestline, said: “Guestline’s software is being adopted in more and more hospitality based businesses throughout Ireland. We are excited to see our business expand and grow in one of the world’s best destinations for hospitality.
“We have extensive expansion plans and will be adding to our Ireland-based team, as we look forward to cementing our position as the Irish hospitality industry’s software partner of choice.”
The expansion comes as the business celebrates a raft of new developments and announcements, including being recognised by the London Stock Exchange Group as one of 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
