Hotel celebrates Hallmark movie

Christmas came early to the streets of Ennis this year as the County Clare town was decked out in festive snow and transformed into a Hallmark Christmas movie set last month.

Now as December beckons and thoughts turn to Christmas shopping excursions, The Old Ground Hotel in Ennis is offering guests a chance to book their very own ‘Hallmark Christmas’ couples package to mark the connection. The movie rumoured to be titled “Christmas at Castle Hart” is set to air on the Hallmark channel from the 27th of November. And the Old Ground hosted two of the movies main stars; American Actress Lacey Chabert (of Mean Girls Fame) and Irish actor Stuart Townsend (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) throughout the three weeks of filming.
