Win a two night break at Delphi Mountain Resort

scollaps-delphiCOMPETITION CLOSED. CHECK BACK TOMORROW TO SEE IF YOU HAVE WON., in association with the Irish Independent’s LoveFood Magazine, has a fantastic prize to give away this Christmas.

How would you like a two-night stay for two people in Delphi Mountain Resort in Leenane, Connemara? The lucky winner and their guest will receive bed and breakfast on both days and dinner on one evening of his or her choice in Delphi Restaurant, where head chef Gerard Reidy has created a menu of wholesome, natural, seasonal, simple, and most importantly, delicious food.

delphi_duskAlso included in the prize is a seaweed bath in Delphi Spa, a very special spa which uses organic locally hand harvested seaweed and mountain spring water.

I stayed before, and it was just perfect: a unique place in which to completely escape, unwind and contemplate. We’re really pleased that they’ve offered this prize. It’s perfect for a Christms break or to banish the New Year blues! Read my review here.
