AMERICAN film star Lacey Chabert spent three weeks at The Old Ground Hotel in Ennis and was quite taken with the place.
Chabert, of Mean Girls fame, recently stayed incognito at the hotel while filming her new movie, Christmas at Castle Hart, according to a spokesperson for the hotel.
The hotel spokesperson also revealed that the actress stayed so long at the Old Ground, because she thought it was “so fetch”.
For those of you not au fait with the lingo, ‘fetch’ is another way of saying ‘cool’.
Built in the early part of the 18th Century as a private dwelling, the manor house has been a hotel since 1895 and reopened under the ownership of Allen Flynn and the Flynn Hotel Collection in September 1995.
They have undertaken five major refurbishments and extensions, bringing it from 11 bedrooms to 108, and it now operates as a four star hotel.
