Association of Irish Musical Societies Conference

The Conference Centre and facilities are excellent with very spacious meeting rooms with all VDU equipment available. The meals and service in the Restaurant were excellent and because of the space in the hotel, groups could have a leisurely chat in any of the bars, hotel foyer and of course found the time for some time in the Spa! It was hassle free with no fears that the group would be unhappy with any aspect of the services provided.
Frances Leahy, Association of Irish Musical Societies Conference.

Dubarry of Ireland

Having used many venues both here in Ireland and internationally I was very impressed with the set up at the Carlton. From the friendly, efficient and helpful staff to the excellent conference room facilities it was a very pleasant experience. Excellent easy to operate audio visual equipment and a responsive air conditioning system made for very comfortable surroundings. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Carlton Shearwater to anybody considering a conference venue.

Irish Primary Principals Network Conference

Thank-you for your help over the past few weeks in preparing for the IPPN conference exhibition. The pre-conference space was perfect for the number of exhibitors and they enjoyed great face-to-face time with the attendees because of the positioning.
A special word of thanks to both Garrett and Cillian who did everything in their power to make sure that the exhibition went without a hitch.
Nicole Walsh, Irish Primary Principals Network Conference

Association of Garda Sergeants & Inspectors

The Seminar in your hotel was excellent. Everything went very well – the room was well laid out. The AV screens were excellently placed to the right and left of the platform. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was also excellent.  I would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel to any conference or seminar organiser.

Irish League of Credit Unions

Just a quick note to say a Very Big Thank You to all the staff in the Carlton Shearwater Hotel. Whatever we asked for over the weekend even if it was from one of the lads setting up the tables for lunch, it was delivered. Not once did we have to chase anyone up and believe me that is such a rare experience. All our board, participants all had good things to say.
