christmas parties at the crib 

We are in full Christmas mode here in the Connacht Hotel, Santa’s little helpers have decorated the place beautifully. Christmas really kicks off on Friday night as the first of our Christmas party nights takes place. The Christmas parties promise to be fun filled night’s of comedy, great food, drink and of course all of your favourite Christmas hits. For the next three weekends we are looking forward to helping you have the best party possible.

A very good friend of the Connacht Hotel, Ger Walsh is one of the biggest talents in Irish cinema at the moment. We are very lucky to have worked with Ger on a number of occasions in the hotel. Therefore as soon as we saw that his latest movie is screening in the Eye Cinema, we booked tickets immediately.  "SOUTH" tells the story of Tom (Darragh O'Toole) a young man struggling through his fathers recent passing. After finding a photo of his estranged mother Tom decides to search for the only family he has left.

This is a beautifully shot movie with a number of familiar faces that’s well worth a watch. Remember where you heard the name Ger Walsh first. Watch the trailer here



Like buses there was no rugby action in the Sportsground for ages and then two arrive together. A full house witnessed a solid performance for Connacht against a diligent Cardiff side.  18-7 was a fair reflection as Pat Lam’s charges warmed up the supports with their trademark open attacking rugby. This week Benetton Treviso are the visitors to the Sportsground. tickets are still available on
