What Makes an Event an Event?

The Connemara Events Guide is an events primarily for use as a calendar for visitors to the region with events provided by organisations, people and businesses. People define events differently, so for the sake of this calendar and a good guideline for posting events, here is our definition:

An event appropriate to post on this calendar —

  1. begins and ends,
  2. is held at a physical place and
  3. occurs in or close to Connemara.

And should be special and require some degree of planning and promotion. Particularly for restaurants, pubs and shops, be attentive here as a happy hour or dinner specials are not an event, whereas a happy hour with live music is, and a special dinner event that happens only once a year, for example is.

What Kind of Events Can Be Posted?

Please click here {insert pdf here} to get an idea of the type of events we accept. In the main, we will usually accept events that we think would be of interest to the visitor to Connemara.

Note to restaurants
We’d love to see karaoke nights, live music, beer/wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and more. Postings such as half-price wine night and half-price burger night, for example, are ok, particularly if we get a lot of restaurants participating and can create a special category for such events.

Note to retail stores
Special shopping nights such as Midnight Madness, Girls Night Out or Photos with Santa fall more in line with “events.” And it’s foreseeable that significant sales events could too, though a “25% off everything in the store” is more commonplace and less a special event.
