Join us at the Slieve Russell Hotel in Cavan for a 4 day music extravaganza!

I’m absolutely thrilled to announce our return to the incredible Slieve Russell Hotel Golf & Country Club in Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan, where we’ll be arriving on Sunday, September 1st, and departing on Thursday September 5th, 2024. Get ready for an unforgettable four-day extravaganza, brimming with sensational music, dancing, and endless fun!

Our star-studded lineup includes some of the finest artists, including Mike Denver, Michael English, Jimmy Buckley, Declan Nerney, John McNicholl, Dominic Kirwan, Brendan Shine, Matt Leavy, and John Molloy. To add to the excitement, we will have nightly late-night music and brilliant afternoon dancing classes that will keep your spirits high and your feet moving.

Our fantastic package sets you up with four nights of top-notch dining, luxurious rooms for a good rest, and delicious breakfasts to start your day right. As our treasured guest, you’ll have access to all the great facilities at the hotel – a fully equipped gym, a refreshing 20m pool, a relaxing jacuzzi, an invigorating steam room, and a serene sauna. And if you’re in the mood for a bit of pampering, the Ciuin Spa & Wellness Centre is ready to help you relax and rejuvenate with the latest in beauty and spa treatments. We`ve also agreed a special discount for the Spa & Wellness Centre for our guests.

Nestled in 300 acres of serene countryside, the Slieve Russell Hotel is a luxurious 4-star haven that promises to transport you to a world of tranquillity. Located within a short 30-minute drive of Cavan town and the charming town of Enniskillen, it’s the perfect destination for our trip and much loved by our returning guests.

Once you arrive at the Slieve Russell Hotel for our “Music to Your Ears” experience, you’ll immediately sense the warm spirit of camaraderie and celebration amongst all of our guests. After a night of dancing, you can unwind in the hotel’s beautiful setting or take a leisurely stroll through the stunning gardens, woodlands, and serene lakes, all with the beautiful backdrop of the Slieve Rushen Mountains. For those seeking tranquillity, a peaceful walk along the scenic Cranaghan Walkway, a 2km path through the beautiful countryside, or a visit to the secluded Secret Gardens will provide a truly blissful experience.

And remember, the Paul Claffey Tours team will be there to assist you at every step of the way, ensuring your stay is unforgettable.

For golf enthusiasts, we`ve arranged an exclusive discount for guests of Paul Claffey Tours.

This is the ultimate break, where entertainment, luxury and fun come together. We would love you to join us at the magnificent 4-star Slieve Russell Hotel Golf & Country Club, Ballyconnell, Co.Cavan, for a celebration of music and dance!
