Shannon College of Hotel Management was founded in 1951 and today is one of the world’s leading hotel schools.

A College of NUI Galway In August 2015, Shannon College of Hotel Management became a College of the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway). The college campus remains in Shannon but all students are registered as students of NUI Galway and all future degrees will be awarded by the University. The new status firmly places Shannon College in the mainstream university system.

The ethos of the Shannon College can be described as the inculcation of exceptional standards of professional presentation, courtesy, attitude and discipline. This ethos actively prepares students for the hotel workplace by promoting customer care, attention to detail, full attendance, adherence to a professional dress code, courtesy, the meeting of deadlines, leadership roles and posts of responsibility and team work.

Shannon College is a member of the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education (International CHRIE), the global advocate of hospitality and tourism education for schools, colleges and universities.

With over 100 hotel partners across 16 countries, students have internship opportunities with prestigious hotel companies including Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, Marriott, Jumeirah International and Hilton. Undergraduate students undertake nearly two years of paid, professional internships. Shannon College organises and supervises these internships and has a 100% placement record since 1951.
