Student Story

Mary Aoife Ong,Tourism

I really enjoyed my time as a tourism student with Crumlin College. The College environment was really nice and positive and all the teachers were so approachable. I really liked how we had a variety of subjects such as French, Business and Event Production as well as Tourism based subjects - it gave me a taste of everything and has helped me pick a career path for the future. The class sizes are nice and small resulting in students bonding really well together and receiving more individual attention from teachers. Our year head Nora was fantastic at providing career opportunities, class trips and excursions and the support and guidance we received from all our other teachers was excellent. The year with Crumlin College has prepared me to continue my studies and I am now planning to study Event Management in DIT. I would highly recommend the college to anybody. You'll not only learn loads but will honestly have great fun along the way!

Student Story

Jack Cassidy, Apprentice with Dalata Hotel Group

After completing the Hospitality with Tourism course, I'm officially doing an apprenticeship with Dalata Hotel Group.   I'm working in the front office department in a city centre hotel. Later this month I'll be training in back of house functions (most likely in the Reservations Department first then on to the Revenue Department). None of this would have been possible if it wasn't for Crumlin College. You seriously helped me throughout the two years I have studied at the college and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

I'm delighted to let you know  that I got the job at Guinness, in the section I wanted.  I'm over the moon!  Thanks for all your help...I couldn't have done this without the College's help throughout last year.
