Since 1994, I have had the privilege each year of touring the US with some of our Best Loved Hoteliers. Three of these Hoteliers/Friends are founders of the brilliant Emerald Triangle - Joe O'Flynn from Rathsallagh House, Brian Bourke from Glenlo Abbey, Brian and Neil Britton from Sandhouse Hotel. During our travels, they were impressed with the Thanksgiving preparations and how special this holiday is. And I'm not just talking about the turkey, although that never fails to impress. It's the sense of gratitude for our blessings that left a mark on them - something we can do not only in the US, but in Ireland and the UK as well.
These three hotels are situated perfectly for touring the West of Ireland and Connemara, the spectacular northern coast of Donegal and Sligo and the lush Wicklow and Kildare countryside just outside Dublin.
So, moved by the spirit of Thanksgiving, they have each decided to host Thanksgiving Dinner at each of their hotels. There is still time to make a holiday of it, and to that end The Emerald Triangle is offering two nights in each Emerald Triangle hotel , including breakfast and a grand dinner on Thanksgiving, November 22, for only €850 per person. And do not think you need only visit the Emerald Triangle - use it as core for an overall touring itinerary of Ireland taking in Kerry, Cork, Waterford or Dublin. In other words, your Emerald Triangle can easily become a diamond or pentagon. To find out more about these great hotels read on.
My personal Thanksgiving wishes to each of you and I hope you will all one day have the chance to experience these wonderful hotels.
