Tower Hotel announce new Head Chef

Tower Chef

The Tower Hotel and Leisure Centre are delighted to announce that Shanta Ranasinghe is now the Head Chef at the hotel.

The award winning chef Shanta Ranasinghe is a native of Sri Lanka and has over 30 years of cooking experience. He trained in the Hilton International in Sri Lanka and has spent more than 15 years in the Middle East, working in 5 star hotels such as the Dubai Grand Hotel and the Forte Grand of Dubai. Shanta has also catered for the royal family of Dubai!

Shanta is no stranger to Irish cuisine – he has previously worked in the Talbot Hotel and in Sqigl Restaurant in Wexford. His seafood dishes were a big hit with the locals. Paulo Tullio formerly of the Independent was also a big fan of Shanta’s cooking!  

Shanta especially likes fusion cuisine and his favourite dishes to cook are sushi, curries, and stir fries. When Shanta is not busy cooking, he’s off cycling. You might run into him on the Greenway or cycling the beautiful countryside of Wexford and Waterford.

Shanta is delighted to be part of the Team at the Tower Hotel and is looking forward to bringing his culinary expertise to Waterford and to cooking for the people of Waterford and all the guests both local and international at the Tower Hotel.

What Our Members Say

“We found the Toys 4.0 Engineers exhibition to be an excellent platform for us to showcase our business. The attendees were exactly the people we hoped to meet and we are delighted to have made new contacts as a result. We also unexpectedly had some success in making supplier connections with other exhibitors. The venue was ideal with adequate sound and space and the presentations were informative. Overall the event was professionally run and we had an excellent experience. We will definitely be exhibiting again next year. I cannot recommend the event highly enough.”
