NEW LUNCH MENU
As the new year new us buzz continues we at the Connacht Hotel are delighted to be able to share our new lunch menu with our customers. The menu which is available in Bar Solo daily is packed with a host of new delicious additions. There’s a mouth-watering French Onion Soup which is already proving very popular. The sandwich menu sees new items such as An Asian Beef Wrap and Teriyaki Salmon Wrap.
We have a number of delicious new salads like the Beetroot and Goats Cheese Salad and the Spicy Beef Salad which can both be served as a main or starter. The main course menu has also had a shake-up with Confit of Duck with braised red cabbage, apple, cream potato, honey and thyme gravy one of my personal favourites. All of this and lots more with the usual great service and free parking here in The Connacht Hotel.

A penalty by Aussie replacement David Horwitz eight minutes from time helped Connacht to a nail-biting 20-18 win over European Rugby Challenge Cup Pool 3 rivals Sale Sharks.
The win leaves Sale on top by virtue of a superior points difference ahead of the final pool games next Saturday when Sale host Perpignan and Connacht travel to Bordeaux. Connacht beat Bordeaux 22-10 in the opening round and will need to improve on last weeks performance to qualify for a home quarter-final in the Challenge Cup.
