Hard to believe the October bank holiday weekend is over and done with for another year, it'll be Christmas before we know it! I know I say it a lot but I really can't get over how fast this year is going by – is it just me or does it feel like it's flying? I can't believe it has been over two months since I was down in Tralee at the festival! I think the weather has something to do with it this year because it has definitely been milder than usual this October. This of course is great news for us because our hotels have been really busy all week with families on their Halloween breaks, probably taking advantage of the last of the good weather.
There were plenty of families around the Carlton Blanchardstown all week and in particular yesterday for their Halloween party. All of the children (and some of the parents) really got into the spirit of things with some great costumes. From what I've heard though it wasn't just the children taking part, some of the staff made the effort to dress up too which the children all loved. I'm not sure if we'll be introducing a new uniform just yet but we can of course make the exception for Halloween!
In other Carlton news this week, the Carlton Hotel Tralee are hosting a wedding showcase on Sunday from 2pm to 5pm and is not to be missed if you're planning a wedding in Kerry! Also the Carlton Shearwater Hotel have their Celebrity Mock Wedding this evening and Strictly Come Dancing tomorrow night, both promise to be great nights and all for charity!
I'll leave it at that for now but will be back soon.......have a great weekend!
