60 years of di­a­monds for Gle­nea­gle Ho­tel

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS - By FER­GUS DEN­NEHY

IT’S a very spe­cial time of the year in one part of South Kerry this month, as a fa­mous Kil­lar­ney ho­tel pre­pares to cel­e­brate a huge mile­stone birth­day.

The Gle­nea­gle Ho­tel, then a small coun­try manor called Flesk House, was born into an age far re­moved from the one that it ex­ists in now - think the space race, Sput­nik and the Showband era - and it would have been very easy for ho­tel to have fol­lowed the same path to­wards re­tire­ment and his­tory as these items.

Yet, it did not. It sur­vived and can now, on its 60 year di­a­mond ju­bilee an­niver­sary, boast the ti­tle as one of the pre­mier ho­tels in all of Kerry.

To help com­m­mem­o­rate this oc­cas­sion in its pres­ti­gious his­tory, the ho­tel will host a spe­cial din­ner dance, this com­ing Saturday, Oc­to­ber 14.

The evening will com­mence with a three-course gala ban­quet in the fa­mous Gle­nea­gle Ball­room and will be fol­lowed by a step back in time with The Le­gends of The Cork Showband with spe­cial guest Sandy Kelly set to pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment on the night.

Tick­ets for the cel­e­bra­tory din­ner dance are set to cost just €35 per per­son, with this price in­clud­ing both the ban­quet and the dance.

Tick­ets for this event can be booked by call­ing 064 6671550.

A great evening out for all.

MAIN: It’s cel­e­bra­tion time at The Gle­nea­gle ho­tel this month as it cel­e­brates its six­ti­eth birth­day - the ho­tel will host a cel­e­bra­tion din­ner this week­end to com­mem­o­rate the oc­cas­sion. INSET: An ad­ver­tise­ment in a 1957 edi­tion of the Ir­ish In­de­pen­dent for the ho­tel.
