Cashel House welcomes you to a quiet, traditional Christmas in Connemara. Lots of warmth, big turf fires, good food and service.
Christmas Eve: Mingle and meet your fellow guests at a special Cocktail Reception in the Bar and Lounge, hosted by the McEvilly Family and staff. The cocktail reception is followed by a festive traditional dinner at 8pm in the Dining Room, decorated in authentic Christmas tradition with holly and ivy. Entertainment during the meal will be classic traditional Irish music and of course includes a visit by the local Carol Singers. Relax after dinner in the lounge or library and enjoy the peace and calm of a quiet Connemara setting.
Christmas Day: Christmas Day begins with a traditional breakfast in the Dining Room (from 8.15am to 10.0am) or enjoy a quiet breakfast in your Room. A list of Christmas Day services are available at the Reception. Excitement mounts as Santa arrives in the Bar at 12.30pm and distributes gifts to all. A magnificent Buffet Lunch is then served at 1pm. Spend the afternoon relaxing in front of the crackling turf and log fires. The more active might opt to take a bike ride or walk and enjoy some fresh air and the Connemara scenery. Afternoon teas are served in the Drawing Room. When darkness descends pre-dinner drinks are served in the Bar at 7pm. This is followed at 8pm by a house party style Christmas Dinner with all the festive trimmings associated with good food and great company; music again is provided by a local musician in keeping with a traditional authentic Christmas.
Five, Four, Three, Two, One……. Ring in the New Year in sparkling style at Cashel House Hotel in Connemara.
New Year’s Eve: Mingle and meet your fellow guests at Mulled Wine Reception in the Bar and Lounge, hosted by the McEvilly family and staff. Following the Reception enjoy a magnificent Celebration Dinner with all the festive trimmings, including unobtrusive background music so as not to take away from those wishing to share their New Year resolutions with loved ones. As dinner draws to a close join our musicians in the bar for some easy listening music and ring in the New Year with a complimentary glass of champagne from your hosts.
New Year’s Day: Breakfast served up until 11am. Remember at least one of those resolutions by taking a brisk walk along the nearby beautiful coastline or take a short escorted hike across the nearby hills. For those less energetic there are open turf and log fires to relax beside and perhaps read a book. Luncheon is served from 1pm in the Dining Room and afternoon teas served later in the Drawing Room. Enjoy another celebratory Dinner that evening cooked with the finest of Irish grown ingredients.
