Christmas at the Carlton Shearwater - By Garrett McGuinness
Having been a part of the opening team for the Carlton Shearwater Hotel it is fantastic to be back to this wonderful and unique property. With so many unique offerings including our spa ‘Heather and Earth by C Spa’, Marina Restaurant and Canal Bar, each visitor is spoiled for choice with regards to offerings. Our most recent addition is The Village Kitchen, which prides itself on serving the best of lunch fare with a special emphasis on homemade, country market food offerings. Already we are receiving a huge increase in footfall, with hot offerings ranging from carved rib of beef, individual savoury quiches & pies, various hot sandwiches, the salad bar and a range of tempting desserts.
With the Christmas countdown now well and truly underway, the Christmas party season is about to begin and it is great to see a welcomed increase in this busy part of the year. Also at this time of the year our entertainment schedule is full of attractive shows, with the big country dancing scene including names such as Robert Mizzell on December 26th and Mike Denver on December 29th. Brendan Grace makes a 4th appearance at the Carlton Shearwater Hotel on January 3rd and no doubt will fill as per all previous show…..so be sure to make your booking in the coming weeks. We look forward to welcoming all return and new guests over the New Year’s and post-Christmas season, which is always a lovely time to take a break and unwind, after what can be a hectic build up to Christmas. This year we continue to offer fantastic family offers with our 2 night family offer to include dinner from €198 for the holiday season.
Already we look forward to 2014, with plenty of big names planned for our entertainment schedule and the introduction of new and exciting dining concepts in each of our food outlet offerings. Our new wedding brochure has just been introduced, with its American Dessert buffet concept. It was not until I saw the full dessert buffet that I realised the real “wow” impact of this offering and already we have bride and grooms showing great interest in this unique offering.
So should you be looking for a fun filled Christmas party, entertaining show night, or just a relaxing pre or post-Christmas break…make sure to give us a call to see how we can help.
Until then, let me take this opportunity in wishing you all an enjoyable Festive Season.
