It's all happening in the Aviva & Croke Park- By Eimear Connolly

Well, January is finally over but unfortunately we are still not seeing Spring in the air, some people are having a horrific time with the floods, so many homes and businesses being destroyed. I hope everyone is staying safe and that you get your properties sorted in the coming weeks and that we see an end to this awful weather real soon!

On a brighter note, what a kick start to February, isn’t Irish Rugby outstanding at the moment. A win against Scotland and an almighty performance by the Boys in Green on Saturday against Wales….could any of us have predicted us to win by such a margin. Is this the year for Ireland……I sure do hope so!  Home games are fantastic fun, it is great to see the crowds of people lining the streets outside bars and restaurants, it feels like the good times are well and truly back!

It’s Valentines weekend I am hoping that I am prompting all the men out there to book something romantic for that ‘special one’ in your life. Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport have still some rooms available with additional packages to spice up the evening, bubbly….chocolates….rose petals.  We can guarantee to make your evening one that will be appreciated!  I personally remember those days when I was single and hated Valentines night, never mind when it fell on a weekend, so we decided to also launch an overnight package for ‘All the Single Ladies’ out there which includes, dinner, transfer to Wright Venue and overnight stay.  Who wants to sit in on a Friday night…just because it is Valentines!  You can read about our special package on

I don’t think I can write a blog this month and not mention Garth Brooks.  Can you believe the demand for the tickets?  I never realised there were so many fans in Ireland. I listened to an interview with him on the radio during the week and he is completely shocked at the response, a nice little money earner for a few nights work…….I wish I could sing!! Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport is now nearly booked, we have a few rooms left for the last night.  As a competition, we decided to raffle 2 tickets on our Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport facebook page and we had 11,000 entrants, with our page being viewed 400,000 times. It really does have the making of being a great 5 nights in the city!

Well, I suppose I will finish up now and wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day, I hope it is everything your loved ones expect!!  

Until the next time.
