Visits from food critics can be nerve-wracking experiences but Temptations Restaurant at The Mill Times Hotel, Westport, can hold its head high after a surprise visit by Paolo Tullio’s ‘Taste of Ireland’ reviewer. “The food at Temptations at the Mill Times is some of the finest I have ever eaten,” was the impressive conclusion. The Mill Times Hotel is a lively boutique style hotel in the town centre, formerly known as the Westport Inn.
A new concept in entertainment has begun in the Mill Times Hotel (formerly the Westport Inn Hotel ). Each Sunday evening, a live band will take the stage in the beautifully appointed O Malley Banqueting suite, commencing at 9pm and playing all the oldies and popular tunes of the past decades. Traditionally, Sunday evenings were always family and couples nights out but with the end of the Celtic Tiger and the subsequent “doom and gloom” this quality time seems to have got squeezed out of everyday life. While lamenting this decline in the social scene, proprietor of The Mill Times hotel, Joe O Malley, and renowned showband maestro. Vinnie Mongan elected to attempt and change this downturn in the social week. As Vinnie says, “over the years I know that the general public love to socialise, listen to good music and dance. Historically, most of the dancing would be done at weddings and various functions but we want to give people the opportunity to enjoy an evening out, be entertained and have the freedom to dance and express themselves. The beauty of this Sunday evening idea is that folk can come of their own wish, without invite, to dance, there is no wedding expense and all can be at home at a civil hour to rise for work on Monday morning.” And Vinnie, while performing himself with his band, promises various acts throughout the season.
