A small and niche in­sti­tu­tion near Lim­er­ick, the Shan­non Col­lege of Ho­tel Man­age­ment takes in a max­i­mum of 100 stu­dents a year and many are from In­dia.

The in­sti­tute has a small but very co­he­sive alumni net­work that run some of the top ho­tel chains in the world. This means that cur­rent stu­dents of­ten get placed in ho­tels where alumni are al­ready work­ing. The Col­lege has con­sis­tently man­aged to achieve 100 per cent place­ment for all its stu­dents.

The de­gree awarded to the stu­dents is a bach­e­lor of busi­ness stud­ies, mean­ing that they can keep their op­tions open if they do not want to con­tinue in the ho­tel line. The course is spread over four years and in the sec­ond year the stu­dents are all placed in a paid in­tern­ship in one of Ire­land's four five star ho­tels. At the end of the fourth year, they are placed in a trainee man­age­ment po­si­tion in an in­ter­na­tional ho­tel. Many of the world's big­gest ho­tel chains, in­clud­ing the Jumeira group and the Hil­ton group, reg­u­larly come to re­cruit from Shan­non.
