Lough Eske Castle hosted over 350 local guests for the annual turn on of the Christmas lights ceremony this evening. General Manager, Donal Cox welcomed and thanked all of the guests for all their support, followed by a beautiful performance from the Tirconaill Youth Choir, a special visit from Santa Claus and disco in the Castle ballroom for all the wee ones.
The winner of the Castle’s annual story writing competition this year, Isabella McHugh from St. Macarten’s National School in Bundoran, was crowned The Princess of the Castle. Isabella was treated to a Chocolate Christmas Tea Party with her family and classmates on the day. Such a lovely treat for all the class.
The team at Lough Eske Castle also launched the annual Christmas food appeal. The Castle invites everyone to help support the local Society of St Vincent de Paul by bringing non-perishable food, such as tinned soups, pasta and sauces, to feed local Donegal families in need during the festive period.
The turn on of the Christmas lights at the hotel sees the start of the festive season and events at the Castle, including Teddy Bear’s Afternoon Tea Parties throughout December, Festive Traditional Afternoon Tea served every day and also the new St Stephen’s Night Gala Dinner, see the hotel website for more information www.lougheskecastlehotel.com
Wishing the GM Donal Cox a very happy birthday for today and to Lisa Marshall Sales Director who will celebrate her birthday tomorrow!
