Tervehdys Readers!

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jatta and I’m the latest intern to join the Fota Island Resort family. For the next nine weeks I will be working as a trainee in the marketing department. I will be blogging to you once a week about my life here in Ireland and about all the exciting things that are happening at the moment at the Fota Island Resort, the luxury spa hotel in Ireland.  Three weeks ago I left the snowy winter wonderland Finland behind and arrived to charming and surprisingly green Ireland. People have been really warm and welcoming but the weather is something I have to get used to.. I’ve started to carry my umbrella and my sunglasses with me! 🙂

If Lady Luck won’t be on your side this time and you still wish to enjoy a memorable evening with your loved one There is a lot going on in February but one thing is for sure, LOVE is in the air at Fota Island Resort. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and many of us are still wondering what is the perfect way to express your love to that special someone. I think that sometimes the perfect gift is to give time away from your daily routines. So remember to enter our Valentine’s Competition where you can win an amazing price! The closing date for entries is thisWednesday the 8th of February so hurry, hurry!

The Breakthrough Cancer Research will host the Valentine’s Ball at Fota Island Resort on the 11th of Feb. I heard that last years Ball raised a staggering €40,000! You can enjoy a great night and support a good cause at the same time. If you want your magical evening to continue don’t let it end just yet.. As always you can make reservations for accommodation from 021 488 3700 for the night to remember.

Not to scare off the male readers out there, but if your Valentine’s day goes really well you might want to join us for the 2012 Wedding Showcase! Everybody around me is telling me that this has always been one of the top-events of the year. I’m just looking forward to seeing all the decorations and seminars and getting my hands to the desserts they are serving! It would also be great to hear from the brides to be, their plans and dreams for their big day. Contact us if you want to join us for this day of beauty, fashion and wedding dreams and make sure you won’t miss out this fun day! Wedding showcase gives you a head start to your wedding plans and finding the perfect wedding venues in Cork, so when the big day comes you can just enjoy the day relaxed and happy. Like this bride who really became the centre of attention after this funny meltdown at the aisle.

I’ll keep you posted on how I’m settling in and how the events go! Wish you all have a great week! Keep up to date with all the latest blog entries, competitions, news and events on our Facebook page and by following us onTwitter!
