Throughout 2019 The Connacht Hotel have been celebrating its 50th anniversary as part of the Galway community. Throughout this time the hotel has become an industry leader, with much of its success equated to its loyal customers, its commitment to the local community and its strong teamwork. Similarly, Connacht Rugby has an unrivalled tradition of supporting the community, a devoted fan base, and teamwork at its core.  This shared value system is why the relationship between the Connacht Hotel and Connacht Rugby continues to be such a perfect partnership.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Connacht Rugby for what promises to be another very exciting season. As the official accommodation partner the success of the Connacht Rugby team has been tremendous for our business and for the region as a whole, and we are delighted to be a part of their story. Having a successful professional rugby side in the province is a major boost in countless ways and we truly look at our arrangement with Connacht Rugby as a partnership and the team at Connacht Rugby as our friends”.

“We have an excellent partnership with the Connacht Hotel and look forward to developing the partnership in the season ahead. With Champions Cup rugby and our traditional schedule of Pro14 action back in the Sportsground, we are already seeing a surge in interest for ticket sales. The Connacht Hotel has become the traditional host for visiting teams and their supporters to come and meet Connacht supporters. The Connacht Hotel have been an important partner for us over the past few years and we are delighted to have them on board to support developments both on and off the field in Connacht Rugby”.

The Connacht Hotel will be home to not only the visiting teams and their fans, during the 2019/2020 season but hundreds of fans from across the province. Their proximity to the Sportsground coupled with their warm welcome and excellent facilities and passion for the game make it the only choice for Rugby fans.
