Frits is our General Manager and his number one priority is to ensure that every Muckross customer enjoys an exceptional guest experience from the moment they arrive to the day we bid farewell. Originally from South Africa, he moved to Cork from London in 2015. Frits has worked across a diverse portfolio of luxury London properties including The Red Carnation Hotel Collection and The Doyle Collection. He began his career in hospitality in 1999 at the Brands Hatch Thistle Hotel before moving to Radisson Edwardian Hotels and then onto Red Carnation Hotels where he became Deputy General Manager of The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel in 2005.
In 2007, Frits was appointed as Deputy General Manager at Red Carnation’s London flag ship 5-star property, The Milestone Hotel & Apartments and later joined The Doyle Collection in 2012 where he worked as Hotel Manager of The Marylebone Hotel and subsequently as General Manager at The Kensington Hotel in London. Ireland always beckoned though and in 2015 he joined Flynn Hotels at The Imperial Hotel in Cork.
“We want to deliver truly memorable experiences that are brimming with personality and characterised by the highest levels of professionalism”. – Frits Potgieter
