Here are a selection of the activities and entertainment we have organised to make this a very special Christmas celebration for you and your family.
23rd December - From the moment you arrive you are home for Christmas. Settle yourself by the fireside with a glass of mulled wine before your evening meal in our award winning restaurants. The festive atmosphere mounts with live entertainment in the warm and social atmosphere of the hotel bar.
24th December - It’s Christmas Eve and the special atmosphere of excitement and anticipation is growing by the minute. Enjoy the festive atmosphere as you gather with your fellow guests for the delightful reception of sparkling wine, festive snacks and our delicious homemade mince pies.
After a sumptuous evening meal you can attend a celebratory Christmas mass in The Hodson Bay Hotel or take the courtesy coach to the local church for Christmas ceremony in Galway. Upon your return a warming drinks reception and festive nibbles await.
25th December - Christmas Day has finally arrived and we hope you
have been good because Santa is making house calls and will pay us a visit after brunch. In the afternoon you can indulge in your Christmas dinner - a festive feast with all the trimmings and a glass of bubbly to celebrate this special day. Enjoy the evening with a sociable game of bingo, sit back and relax in the Library or in the many quiet spots tucked away throughout the hotel, or settle in front of the open fire in the bar as the live music begins.
26th December - After a sumptuous Christmas lunch families can enjoy the fun of a treasure hunt, get competitive with a table quiz or watch the big family movie with popcorn for a real cinema experience. Take the opportunity to enjoy some quiet time as you rest, relax and revive after the Christmas festivities.
Refresh in our leisure centres, indulge in pampering treatments or simply enjoy a refreshing waterside walk or some quiet time curled up in our library and waterfront conservatories. In the evening the festive entertainment continues with live music and craic in the bar.
