Connacht Rugby Renew Partnership with Connacht Hospitality Group
Connacht Rugby are delighted to announce a renewal of our partnership with Connacht Hospitality Group.

This hugely successful partnership has previously been synonymous with groups flagship property The Connacht Hotel but as the group has grown over the last few years the time is now right to expand the partnership.


The Connacht Hospitality Group, is widely regarded as one of Galways leading hospitality groups. They operate three hotels in Galway City, The Residence Hotel, The Forster Court Hotel, and flagship property The Connacht Hotel. They also operate a 24-hour Active Fitness Leisure Club as well as three leading licence premises including An Pucan,1520 Bar, HYDE Bar & Gin Parlour and most recently we took over the operations of Galway Bay Golf Resort with future plans to build a luxury 4-star hotel & spa on the resort.

“Our partnership with Connacht Rugby has always been a natural fit and we are excited to be able to extend this out to our wider Connacht Hospitality Group. The last 18 months have been challenging for both Connacht Rugby and our own teams but our shared values of hard work, resilience and team work have carried us through and we are very hopeful for our partnership into the future.  

Philip Patterson, Head of Commercial & Marketing at Connacht Rugby says:

“It was a no-brainer to renew our agreement with Connacht Hospitality Group. They have been a huge supporter of ours down the years and provide wonderful services and facilities to both people living in Galway and visitors to the city. We look forward to continue to grow our relationship in the years ahead. “
