Letter from the General Manager

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

I have not been ‘Bloging’ recently; sorry about that, it has been a hectic time here in Killarney trying to keep the show on the road for our guests. We had an excellent turnout for our Murder Mystery weekend at Halloween and over 150 people joined in the fun with great fancy-dress by them all. Our March Murder Mystery had a good turnout too but I suppose Halloween time is the real festive time for dressing up. I’m really looking forward to our next one in October; I will keep you posted on that.

We are looking forward to a good busy season here at the Court with great value to be had for all. We have recently installed the Wii console in our playroom which will be available to children who are on our Kiddies club activities. These clubs are available (with prior booking) from 6-9 each evening and also on Saturdays when from 2-4 we do a trip to Buddies Soft Play centre which is only 5 minutes away from us and really great fun for all the youngsters. I’ll be back again with a more detailed Blog next week and will fill you in on all the local news here from the Court.
