Carlton Hotels Win Awards

Posted: 2012-01-13 16:30:00 This week has been a very busy one for us here at Carlton head office as we plan our activity for the months ahead. There will definitely be a lot going on over the next few weeks so if you’re a fan of our promotional offers make sure to keep an eye on our website. We’re hoping people will choose to support the Irish economy and holiday at home this year instead of travelling abroad. To help with encourage you we will have plenty of offers on throughout the year so you won’t need to break the bank to holiday in Ireland. We will also be launching a big campaign in March which should encourage more visitors into Ireland but I’ll have more details on that nearer the time.It was a week of awards for the Carlton Group as two of our properties received different ...

Happy New Year

Posted: 2012-01-06 16:00:00 Happy New Year to you all, hope you had a great Christmas and enjoyed the time off. I only just went back to work myself this week and I must admit I really enjoyed the holidays. It was great to get the chance to relax with family and friends and celebrate Christmas at home. It was all the better that we didn’t get a white Christmas this year because we could go visiting family and friends without worrying about being snowed in. It was back with a bang for us here at Carlton as we relaunched our January room sale on Wednesday following the success of last year’s sale. We offered 50% off our B&B rates for 48 hours only and there was a lot of interest on it. In the end the sale was a great success and it looks like there will be plenty of people “staycationing ...

The new Carlton Apprentice

Posted: 2011-12-22 14:00:00 The final of the Carlton Apprentice took place last week and the four finalists went head to head selling vouchers all week at shopping centres across the country. I called into the Pavilions, Liffey Valley and Whitewater Shopping Centres but unfortunately didn't make it down to Cork to visit the Carlton Millrace Apprentice, Clare, but I heard she did very well. I saw first hand just how busy three of the Apprentices were and it was great to see them in action selling Carlton vouchers. All four of the finalists did really well and I would like to congratulate all of them on their hard work and dedication to the task. But there can only be one winner and I'm delighted to announce that this year's Carlton Apprentice is Louise Rennison from the Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel. Louise ...

The Carlton Apprentice 2

Posted: 2011-12-16 16:30:00 Following the success of last year’s competition we decided to run another search for a Carlton Apprentice this year. The first task in the competition took place last weekend in shopping centres across Ireland as the Apprentices went head to head selling Carlton gift vouchers. The task was a great success and I’d like to congratulate all the Apprentices for their hard work and effort over the weekend. Unfortunately though not everyone can win and there were only four places in the next round. These four places went to Brian Brennan from the Carlton Shearwater Hotel, Louise Rennison from the Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel, Lorraine Crowley from the Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown and Clare Finn from the Carlton Millrace Hotel.The final round of the competition began this ...

Shearwater Spa Relaunch

Posted: 2011-12-09 13:00:00 This week began with the relaunch of the spa at the Carlton Shearwater Hotel on Monday. I had a very busy schedule for the week but I managed to keep Monday evening free to attend the launch and I’m glad I did because it was a great event. The spa has undergone some refurbishment and has been rebranded as Heather & Earth by C Spa. Before the relaunch I got a chance to have a look round the new spa and had a chance to take in the new additions including their new café. The event was attended by RTE’s Mary Kennedy and Rose of Tralee Tara Talbot along with many of the locals who came out to show their support for the hotel. There were plenty of cocktails, canapés, treatment demonstrations and goodie bags on offer which seemed to be well received. Overal ...

That time of year again!

Posted: 2011-12-01 12:00:00 The first of December is here again and with it comes the official start of the Christmas celebrations. The radio stations were playing Christmas songs this morning and at the Carlton Group we’ve launched our Christmas voucher campaign. I know the group marketing team have been working on it for a few weeks but I spotted my first glimpse of it on a poster at the Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport yesterday and I must say it looks great. I also spotted it on TV3 this morning before work and I’m sure plenty of people were delighted to see we are offering an extra 10% free on all vouchers bought today. Our vouchers are usually very popular as a Christmas gift so I’m sure there’ll be plenty of them bought again this year!We’ve had two spa launches in recent we ...

Tralee Spa Launch

Posted: 2011-11-25 17:00:00 It’s coming to the end of a very busy week for me and I’m heading back to Dublin today after a few days away from the office. Although I do enjoy the travelling that comes with my job, I don’t look forward to the amount of paperwork that tends to be waiting for me when I get back. Although seeing as its Friday I might just have to prioritise and leave some of it for Monday. So far its looking like I’ll be around most days next week so I’ll have plenty of time to catch up on it all.One thing about being away though is that I missed the launch of the new Spa at the Carlton Hotel Tralee last night. ‘Herbs & Roses by C Spa’ was officially opened by the Rose of Tralee, Tara Talbot, and from what I’ve heard it was a great night. The c ...
