Enda McNulty - Motiv8 Performance Excellence
"The first time i went to Delphi two words came into my mind, World Class. The rugged mountainous scenery is world class. The hotel accommodation and food and beverage is world class. More importantly to me however, the quality of the experience is world class. Motiv8 have brought many groups to Delphi Mountain Resort over the last three years, as a result of me being wowed so much on my first visit. Each time we bring a corporate team, or a professional sports team to Delphi, i can see a significant improvement in their team effectiveness, in their communication, in their morale, and in their "espirit de corps." Motiv8 were so impressed with Delphi Mountain Resort that we are very proud to have created a partnership with their great team. This partnership enables motiv8 to work in conjunction to the Delphi team in delivering life changing experiences in the corporate, educational and sports industry. We at motiv8 do not use the phrase world class, very frequently in business or sport in Ireland.. and thus we strongly endorse our full belief that you will have a world class experience in Delphi."
We were looking for an exciting and unique location for our overnight team event in 2010 and found exactly what we were looking for in Delphi! John helped us plan our visit from the beginning and tailored our stay to fit our needs perfectly. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and at ease, knowing we would be looked after during our stay. Delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner were served with a smile and our exciting outdoor activities were balanced with luxurious accommodation and spa facilities. The positive feedback from the team was overwhelming and we all truly enjoyed our moment of luxury. With such a beautiful and tranquil location and attentive service we will be back, no doubt!
"Delphi far exceeded all expectations that we had! The standard of the accommodation and facilities were best in class set in panoramic and stunning scenery. There was a great range of activities to choose from for all abilities and the instructors were great being patient with the more inexperienced, to challenging the more adventurous among the group. The spa was a quiet haven with floor to ceiling views of the mountains. The food was marvellous and a not to be missed chocolate dessert was the icing on the cake! All in all a fantastic place for a break whether for complete R&R or seeking an adrenaline rush!!"
"The Delphi experience was one to remember and repeat for all the right reasons! We brought the Fitsquad group to Delphi looking to experience a weekend of fun, luxury, adventure and excitement and they not only met but exceeded our expectations on all levels! The accommodation was both luxurious and charming combined, the catering was second to none and the range of activities for everyone from coasteering to archery to the zip wire was talked about for weeks after and the knowledge and friendliness of the staff left us feeling like we were part of something unique. Returning to Delphi is a must in the calendar every year, I know it's been talked in the context of how soon can we do it?"

"It was a fantastic experience for the whole team as it showed them how necessary clear communication is & support for each other. The more tasks that were done, the team significantly improved in communicating with each other. It really worked well for M&S Team as they didn’t know each others personal strengths & weaknesses or fears that challenges presented and it was an excellent way to unify the team."
"We were seven business people from California, the US East Coast, UK and Sweden in the commodity pricing business, meeting to build our team, have some fun together and get some work done. I'm on the plane home now and all I can say is, we LOVE this place. We wanted something singular, characterful, adventurous and exciting, but which would match the expectations of a group of business travellers used to getting pampered by the big chain hotels. The president of the company was along, we needed it to work for everyone, and for the meetings to go without a flaw. Fortunately, John Sullivan gave great service in the run-up to the event, with planning, advice and even coming down to Galway to guide us into the mountains.
Then we arrived at Delphi and I'm going to gush about this. The setting is glorious. The food was absolutely excellent. The meeting room was perfect for our group of seven. The service in the restaurant, bar and spa was warm and attentive from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. When someone dropped two credit cards and $70 in a corridor it was delivered back to their room. When two cases dropped from our minibus as we drove away at the end of our stay, an off-duty member of staff, Declan (who is a fantastic credit to the resort, by the way), rushed down the mountain, saving the day. The front desk, including Sharon and others, were just great about helping us with many small but important details.
We were on the adventure package, and the afternoon sessions were great fun. We had a great laugh at Leenane's pubs and discovered what seemed quintessentially Irish at the music night in Westport."
