A Cork hotel has appointed a Director of Romance for February
His CV must be sizzling.
A Cork concierge has been appointed the first-ever Director of Romance at The Metropole Hotel.
Eamonn Cassidy has taken on the new role for the month of February to ensure guests have an extra special Valentine’s Day this year.
The hotel has been a popular location for marriage proposals since it first opened more than 125 years ago and the team is hoping there’ll be a few more this February 14th.
Anyone who requires some help in that department can contact Cassidy, who will be on hand to help plan the big surprise or supply recommendations for some of the most romantic spots in Cork for loved-up couples.
“Valentine’s Day is obviously a very popular time for people to propose and I’d love to see a few people get down on one knee at the Metropole this year,” said Eamonn.
“But it’s not all about proposals. It can also be a lovely time for couples to get away from their busy schedules and spend some quality time together. As the Director of Romance I look forward to organising beautiful flower bouquets from our in-house flower shop, To Have And To Hold, and bottles of Champagne and strawberries for our guests.”
Eamonn knows all about romance; he’s married to his childhood sweetheart, Karen, for 25 years.
He says the secret to a happy marriage is “being able to laugh together and enjoy each other’s company, whether it’s a night out on the town or a quiet night in with a nice meal and a good movie”.
