Connacht Hospitality Group Giddy for the Races with lots of fun planned

The Connacht Hospitality Group are ready for a fantastic Galway Races Summer Festival, and they are organising lots of amazing events and exciting entertainment throughout the seven days.

The Group’s several businesses throughout the city will be helping customers make the most of the week-long festival between July 31st and August 6th.

The Connacht Hotel, sponsoring the QR Handicap Race on the Monday, will provide starter’s orders with its Racing for Rosabel event. This will generate awareness and funds for Rosabel’s Rooms and provide plenty of enjoyment. A three-course luncheon, Aperol Spritz Garden Party in the newly opened The Aviary, best-dressed competitions, and transport to the Ballybrit Racecourse on select days will make for a fitting opening to Race Week 2023.

The Connacht Hotel promises an extravaganza of races-related activities throughout the week, making it one of the ideal places to be. On Monday and Thursday, a photographer will be available to snap some amazing photos. Make-up artist Alina Belova will provide on-site services from Monday to Thursday, while hairdresser Lydia McConville will also be available on the same days. Televised races will be shown on screens throughout, and people can enjoy transfers to the racecourse on select days.

Elsewhere across the Group, HYDE Bar is the Home of the Galway Races Afterparty. Each day, a boozy brunch at HYDE will provide the ideal way to get into the mood at one of the city’s most elegant venues. Throughout the week, live entertainment from Beggers Velvet, DJ Paul Belton, and others mean that race-goers can dance the night away after an evening of pulsating horse-racing action. Plus, on the Sunday, HYDE will be hosting their ABBA Disco Brunch. HYDE Hotel also offers beautifully stylish bedrooms that would be ideal for relaxing in after a day of socialising.

1520 and Residence Hotel on Quay Street are also owned by the Connacht Hospitality Group. Located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, 1520 offers the ideal location for anyone looking to party long into the night; with music seven nights a week, it offers fantastic entertainment from an eclectic array of acts. Plus, the hotel is a trendy place to drop your bags in and get dressed up before you soak up the Race Week atmosphere.

An Púcán is another of the properties owned by the Group, and the city-centre bar offers a fantastic setting for anyone who’d like to enjoy a pint or a cocktail with some chef-crafted cuisine. Open seven nights a week, it has a fantastic atmosphere which includes the Heineken Beer Garden, perfect for any of the seven nights.

Undoubtedly, there is a lot happening across the Connacht Hospitality Group throughout Race Week, including live entertainment, beauty services, and fashion events. So, whether you’re planning one outing or several, you will be spoiled for choice thanks to the nightlife, accommodation, and food and drink options available to choose from.
