VISITORS are flocking to a luxurious five-star hotel complex in Stradbally, where every need is catered for with no expense spared.

Bookings are flying in for summer breaks at the newly-opened upmarket resort and there is already a long waiting list, particularly for the sumptuous penthouse apartments.

Hotel guests immediately feel at home and many have already booked a long-term stay at one of the magnificent presidential suites, which are said to be particularly popular with ladybirds and beetles!

The friendly visitors are somewhat unusual hotel guests, but they feel extremely welcome at Hunters Lane, where a wonderful range of bug hotels was installed as part of a memorable summer gathering of families.

Moss graffiti and model-making at Hunters Lane in Stradbally

The beautiful community garden area at Hunters Lane is constantly being enhanced thanks to the efforts of hard-working volunteers, led by Stradbally Tidy Towns and Stradbally Community Development Association (SCDA) Environmental with the support of SVT Activity and Wellness Community Hub.

Last week, Hunters Lane was the venue for a wonderful open air gathering to mark the progress of Pride of Place in the heart of Stradbally. Neighbours, friends, residents’ associations, business people and other groups gathered on Tuesday 25 June to celebrate progress and make plans for the future. The gathering was hosted by Stradbally Tidy Towns, SCDA Environmental, SVT, Kinsella Financial and Simpson’s Gala store.

A week earlier, Hunters Lane hosted a wonderful ‘Bug Hotels and Bluebells’ family event on 18 June, where children in particular loved the new bug hotels that have been installed on the old stone walls. They also enjoyed activities ranging from an entertaining and educational nature scavenger hunt to making moss graffiti, model-making and wildflower planting.

Hunters Lane is an ideal and idyllic venue for community gatherings and no doubt there will be many more family-friendly events to look forward to throughout the summer.
