"Dance your Ass off"

The Absolute Hotel asked you to “Dance your ass off” this Christmas to help raise funds for Limerick Animal Welfare. “Derek”, the donkey mascot asked you to mention him when booking your Christmas party night and the Absolute Hotel would donate €1 for every person booked. There was a great response and in total a donation of €250 was raised. Thank you all from “team absolute”.

We survived the Adare to survive challenge

"Team Absolute" went head-to-head with the terrifying Adare to survive challenge this September.  A 7.5km military style obstacle course set in the grounds of Clonshire Equestrian centre taking in 38 natural and man-made obstacles from stone walls to plunging ice pools there were many “delights” that greeted us on our way.
We put ourselves through this grueling task all in aid of a worthy charity CARI (children at risk in Ireland) which was our selected charity as part of the live 95fm stop tour.  We are proud to announce we raised over €500 for this charity and would like to thank those that sponsored us and supported us along the way.

We could tell you about the challenges, the trill’s and spills of the day but we will let the pictures speak for themselves.

A chilly afternoon was had at the Absolute Hotel Limerick.

“Team Absolute” went face to face with the squealing and gasping cold of the ice bucket challenge.
After completing the challenge we wished we would of done the follow, so we present to you our tips on surviving the challenge:
  1. Climatise – standing outside in the cold for a couple of minutes, this will reduce the shock of the ice cold water hitting you.
  2. Layers – Remember the more clothes you put on the more wet clothes you have to take off so choose wisely.
  3. Press Record – Have a reliable friend who will press record when you are doing the challenge.
  4. Towels at the ready – This is optional but you will be shivering after so think ahead.
Remember it is for charity so donate generously check out our video and who we nominated to take the #icebucketchallenge    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loygfx1MvdY

Best Dad in Limerick 2014

Congratulations to Noel Bolster who has been crowned the "Best Day in Limerick 2014".

He was nominated by his daughter Harriet Bolster, who has these kind words to say:

I wish to nominate my father Noel Bolster in the best dad in Limerick competition. There are many things that I can say about my dad in this email but there is not enough space and people may not have enough time to read it all :) My dad is an extremely hard working man who always puts everyone else before him. Having two daughters and no sons, he lives amongst three women (my mam, my sister and me) in the house who are always pampering ourselves or as he puts it "aren't ye good to yereselves". As a dad he is great and he is always there for us no matter what. He helps us by teaching, advising and guiding both my sister and I since we have been children. He constantly praises us and tells us how proud he is of us. He is one of the funniest people I know and not a day goes by when that he doesn't have us roaring laughing over something. He loves his garden which is starting to look like Versaille (as he likes to think) and any additions that any of us would like to have added to it he gets it done no matter what it is! At the moment his mother-in-law (my nan) who will be 94 on the 4th of July is living with us as she took ill a few weeks ago. Every morning my dad has her breakfast ready, helps her do some exercise and attends to her thoughout the day. Every day my father has the dinner ready for my mam when she returns from work despite him working himself. He does this of his own accord and enjoys being busy around the house. He really is one in a million. My mam and dad are a great team together and love taking off on random trips and adventures. As much as we try to show our appreciation for my dad on a regular basis, I think winning a competition like this would make his day! He really deserves a day of pampering "to be good to himself" and realise how much we love and appreciate him. For many reasons including these, this is why l believe that my dad is the best dad in Limerick

Mother's Day Competition 2014

Congratulations to the recent winner of our mother's day competition Alice O'Donnell. She won this fantastic prize, dinner for 2 and a bottle of Prosecco and one of the follow treatments – 30 minute back massage, Indian Head Massage or a Tester Facial.

Her daughter Margaret Greaney nominated her with this heart-warming letter:

"My mam is the best because she never stops for any of her children. My sister is a type 1 diabetic and this may sound like nothing but its a 24/7 job and she does it without ever complaining. It involves a lot of doctors visits, hospital stays and sleepless nights. She never lets anything get in her way and even for me, at 27, she helps me any way she can- from help with my wedding (financially, dress shopping, seating plans, everything!) to help with my first home (decorating, furnishing etc) and help in everyday life. She deserves a treat and to be pampered and I really hope she wins this to be treated as the special person she is"

Remember to keep up to date with our facebook page so you too could be a winner of one of our competitions.
