In this British comedy, the Slieve Donard is The Hotel Spendide! Join us to watch the film inside the hotel it was based on. Catch some archive footage of the Slieve Donard including Gloria Hunniford performing in the ballroom! There will be a special cocktail for the night and we will have people dressed as characters from the film.
Set on a remote island off the coast, Hotel Splendide follows Ronald Blanche (Daniel Craig) and his family attempt to maintain their dilapidated hotel following the death of Roland’s mother, the family matriarch. After receiving an anonymous letter informing her of the death, former sous chef Kath (Toni Collette) returns to the hotel to transform it with her cooking.
