Mayo Association Dublin to host Summer Party in a Secret Garden in Dublin

Mayo Association Dublin is hosting its much anticipated annual Summer Party on Thursday 5 July in one of the newest city centre venues – The Iveagh Garden Hotel – and it will again be an ideal opportunity for Mayo people working and living in Dublin to socialise and network for members and non-members alike.

The luxurious setting of the Iveagh Garden Hotel is centrally located at 72/74 Harcourt St, Dublin 2, and is home to Dublin’s ‘Secret Garden’ which includes a cascading waterfall – the perfect backdrop for an annual summer gathering.
The hotel is Europe’s ‘first sustainable hotel’ which sources all of its energy from an underground river, running 50 metres below the hotel.

Large turbines will convert power from the River Swan to meet all of the hotel’s energy requirements.

The Association is delighted to hold this year’s #MADparty in this exciting new venue.
The summer party in this urban oasis, just steps from Grafton Street, starts at 7pm with tickets available on the door at €20 per person, to include a great choice from the gourmet BBQ menu to tickle all taste buds, along with one free drink upon entry.

Entertainment on the night will be provided by Mayo’s musical trio The Murphy Sisters who are influenced by their traditional music background and their eclectic musical taste ranges from Fleetwood Mac to Ed Sheeran. They have managed to absorb all of these tastes and remain original. The group have just returned from headlining the Mayo Manchester Mayo Day Tradfest and this summer because of their amazing vocal harmonies and skills they have been once again been invited to headline the Urban Voices Festival in France where they will be representing Ireland be playing to 6,000 capacity stadiums.

Mayo Association Dublin is delighted to announce that it will continue its partnership with The Connacht Whiskey Company at this year’s summer party.

The Connacht Whiskey distillery sits on the banks of the beautiful River Moy where the river widens into the Moy Estuary in Ballina, Co. Mayo, where they distill and barrel-age their spirits in a rural, coastal environment unique to the West of Ireland.

The Association will also partner with local artisan Mayo chocolatier, Noo Chocolates, who source the best of local Irish ingredients for use in their handmade chocolates to provide a unique sweet taste of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Chairperson Julie Doyle said: “We are excited to work with local Mayo companies to provide them with an opportunity to promote their luxury products in the capital. It is wonderful to see the growth of the food and drink industry providing local employment.

“Mayo is a clean green environment with a strong agricultural and agribusiness tradition which makes the green energy environment of the Iveagh Gardens Hotel a perfect venue to showcase these artisan products.”
