Here come the Roses!

Posted: 2010-07-08 10:00:00 Arriving in Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport on Sunday 15th August all the Roses will meet for the first time so there will be a lot of excitement and fun. The highlights will include visits to popular tourism spots including Kilmainham Jail and the Guinness Storehouse followed by a Carlton Corporate Night which is always a glamorous and often a late night! On Wednesday 18th the Rose bus travels West for Ballinasloe, with a civic reception where the Roses travel on open vintage cars. Fingers crossed for some sunshine for what plans to be a great occasion for the town of Ballinasloe! Young local Rose buds can enter the poetry competition at the Carlton Shearwater Hotel and the winning Rose Bud will be in for a real treat! And yes it’s on with the cocktail wear again for Gala Ch ...

Posted: 2010-07-07 10:07:00 I love to hear of new initiatives happening at our hotels and I think Carlton Shearwater get the prize this month for the most unique guest activity, zorbing! For the "uninitiated", this involves climbing into a giant plastic ball and rolling down a hill at top speed! Guaranteed to get our younger (and not so young) guests out of bed on a Saturday morning! For slightly less adventurous guests, who would still like to get out and about and see some of the local countryside, the hotel is also offering a "Getaway with a difference", with kayaking and orienteering trips.Our activity partners “Upriver.ie” are highly trained and experienced team of professionals who are as dedicated to exceeding your expectations as we are. All gear is supplied and guests can arrange t ...
