Fun & Games With The Castlerosse Bridge Break

- Posted on: 13/02/2019 - $itemValue.title

Over the years, our four-day Bridge Break has become one of the highlights of our social calendar and continues to attract players of all calibres as members from Bridge Clubs all over the country flock three times a year to enjoy their favourite game amidst the beautiful surroundings of the Killarney National Park. Here we give you just a little taster of what you can expect from our Bridge Package.

Commencing last Sunday, our first Bridge Event this Autumn saw our guests arrive to a welcoming drinks reception at Mulligans Irish Bar with views of a glorious September sunset ahead of their first night of games.

Our newly refurbished Mulligans Bar & Lakeview is always a hive of activity during the event celebrations with nightly entertainment after each Bridge session providing the perfect opportunity for guests to get to know one another whilst enjoying some lively Irish music as part of the experience. Remember to bring those dancing shoes…

The second day of the event is typically spent by many of the participants simply relaxing and enjoying some of the fantastic facilities the Castlerosse Resort has to offer, including relaxing in our state of the art Leisure Centre, lounging over a leisurely breakfast and a read of the morning papers or enjoying a spot of golf (which is also included within the package) on our scenic 9-hole Golf Course overlooking the magnificent McGuillicudy Reeks.

Each evening you will also be treated to a sumptuous three course meal in the Grosvenor Restaurant with spectacular views of the Killarney National Park before the commencement of another evening of games.

Have we tempted you yet? 

 

With Bridge taking place at 8pm most evenings, it provides the players with the perfect opportunity to partake in some of the other activities and excursions that the wonderful town of Killarney has to offer.

A sight-seeing trip to see the breath-taking Lakes of Killarney aboard an enclosed Watercoach Lake Cruiser is a popular choice amongst many of our guests. This unique experience gives you the opportunity to learn about some of the locality’s most loved landmarks such as Muckross House, Ross Castle, Inisfallen Island and St. Mary’s Cathedral as well as experience firsthand the beauty of the unique wildlife of the area. If you are lucky you may even catch a glimpse of the rare White Tailed Eagles that have made the Lakes of Killarney their home – make sure you pack the camera!  

We mark the end of the gala event with a very special Cheese & Wine Reception on the last afternoon of games to give our participants one last chance to mingle before heading off in their separate directions the following day as well as giving us the opportunity to celebrate another occurrence of what has become a much loved Castlerosse tradition.
