Sporting Enthusiasts - By Guest Blogger Michelle Ryan
We’re all about sport at the moment here at the Carlton Shearwater Hotel! In the midst of All Ireland Season the country focusing on who will win the Football and Hurling finals but our attention is on the Galway Ladies Camogie Team who take part in two All-Ireland finals this Sunday 15th. The Senior Team is taking on Kilkenny and the Intermediate Team are taking on Limerick. We want to wish both teams the very best of luck and we look forward to welcoming them home!
For the 1st year the Galway Summer Rally was hosted and sponsored by Carlton Shearwater Hotel and what a great weekend it was! The buzz of excitement for this year’s successful event was immense and we look forward to welcoming them back next year!
Not to be outdone by the speed of the rally drivers we are looking ahead to one of the greatest Gathering events being hosted in Ireland this year! In association with Aer Lingus and Etihad, sixteen International Hurling teams will visit Galway from the 18th to the 22nd of September. The Carlton Shearwater Hotel and Ballinasloe Town are hosting the Division 1 team; Australian All Stars, Chicago, Robert Emmets and St. Gabriels. The regional games will be hosted in Ballinasloe and the finals will take place in Pearse Stadium on Saturday the 21st of September. We are delighted to be involved in such an amazing event and we’re really looking forward to welcoming the teams to Ballinasloe.
We have been very busy over the last few months with the Carlton Shearwater Hotel undertaking some new exciting projects! The very first of which is that our Marengo’s Restaurant is now known as ‘Village Kitchen’ and is embracing the farm to fork concept creating a bountiful array of newly created dishes. We’re really excited about the planned changes here at the hotel and we’ll be back to fill you in on everything once it’s all in place!
Hope you all have a great weekend and we look forward to welcoming you to the Carlton Shearwater Hotel very soon!
