Seasons Greetings for the General Manager

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Christmas is always a lovely time in Kenmare. It’s quiet and peaceful, compared to the madness of summer, but there’s still a great buzz about the place. The town looks pretty and festive, with the Christmas lights on, the beautiful crib set up in the park and the attractive shop window displays. Always a lovely place for a short stay, Kenmare is somehow more special at Christmas with the quirky, unique shops for that unusual Christmas present, the award-winning restaurants, the lively pubs and the quaint cafes.  For a special afternoon treat, you really must visit Kenmare’s latest attraction; Cupan Tae offers you beautiful lace tablecloths, fine bone china teapots and cups, a whole array of different flavoured teas and delicious home-made cakes.

 

The Kenmare Bay Hotel, whilst closed weekdays at the moment, comes alive at the weekends. We have 4 weddings in December and 4 Christmas party nights. Our special New Year’s package includes tickets for our fabulous Gala Dinner where we’ll help you welcome in 2009 with champagne at midnight.

 

There’s every good reason to take a family break at the Kenmare Bay over the Christmas period. We have some fantastic offers on, both in the hotel itself and in our Holiday Homes and Lodges. The children will be well catered for with our kids clubs, restaurant play area, special children’s menus, kids drop-in play room, outdoor playground and of course our fabulous Leisure Centre with a 20m pool and a children’s pool. It’s the perfect time for a family getaway; the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort and the town of Kenmare provide everything you will need for an enjoyable and relaxing break.

 

The Hotel will be closed from the 5th January until the beginning of February, at which time we will open fully and will be gearing up for the season ahead. There are so many special offers on at the Kenmare Bay, you’re spoilt for choice. If you like horse-riding, we have the package for you; if you want to ‘Look Good and Feel Fabulous’, we have that covered; looking for a great value golf break? Look no further. Or if you just want a relaxed and pampered break with your Mum or best mate, we’re happy to oblige. Check out the ‘Specials’ web page for a detailed list of all our offers.

 

Finally, if you’re still looking for that illusive present for a special person in your life, take a look at our range of vouchers on our ‘Gift Vouchers’ web page. Easy to order, easy to package, bound to please.

 

All that’s left for me to do now is to wish all of our guests – past, present and future – a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We thank you for choosing the Kenmare Bay Hotel and we look forward to welcoming you back during 2009.

Mulled Wine Recipe

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Mulled Wine Recipe

Ingredients

1 lemon or orange

6 sticks of cinnamon

12 whole cloves

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ginger

1/8 teaspoon allspice

red wine

¼ cup sugar

 

Method

Combine the spices and citrus in a dry red wine, such a Burgundy. Add ¼ cup of sugar. Heat this through for at least 15 minutes, but don’t boil. A clean large coffee pot is a great method for heating the wine.

 

Use an inexpensive wine for this recipe, but don’t get something that tastes absolutely horrible.

 

Serve immediately with warm mince pies and lots of Christmas goodwill.
