The new Talbot Suites at Stonebridge and Talbot Hotel Wexford are delighted with the announcement that they are the official accommodation partner for the UEFA Women’s Champions League Qualifiers this coming August. Over 150 players, management and officials will descend on Wexford Town for a week full of training and matches. The majority of the teams will stay in the self-catering apartments in Talbot Suites at Stonebridge while some officials will stay in the Talbot Hotel. All players and management will enjoy all their meals in the Talbot Hotel as well as complimentary use of the Quay Leisure Centre and will also have the use of meeting room facilities daily.
In 2015, the Talbot Hotel Wexford was approached by Wexford Youths to be the accommodation partner in a bid to bring the qualifiers to the South East but unfortunately the number of hotel rooms was not enough for the large numbers. However, now with the addition of Talbot Suites at Stonebridge and a vast amount of additional accommodation in Wexford Town, Wexford Youths approached the Talbot again and succeeded. The self-catering apartments located just 100m from the hotel make it an ideal base for the players who can relax in their own space in the evenings.
Speaking on this good news, Group Managing Director of The Talbot Collection, Philip Gavin said, “It’s fantastic news for both the Talbot and for Wexford. We are welcoming our first guests to Talbot Suites at Stonebridge this week and are already seeing that self-catering accommodation in Wexford Town is much sought after. We hope that we can bring many more events like UEFA Champions League to Wexford with the additional accommodation available”.
The Talbot sister properties owe this great boost in local tourism to Wexford Youths who did their best to bring the qualifiers to the South East and succeeded. With back to back wins, Wexford Youths are bringing women’s soccer to the forefront and we wish them all the very best in their training in the lead up to the qualifiers and look forward to welcoming them and the international teams to Wexford.
The Talbot Collection now has six properties with locations in Wexford, Cork, Dublin and Carlow.
