Arnotts department store has done it again and scored another coup – it’s opened Ireland’s first rooftop ice rink! This rink is the newest one for 7Up Christmas on Ice and the only one in Dublin city centre.
Hundreds of guests turned out to skate on the new rink and to see ice skating and ice hockey demonstrations. It was a festive feeling with mulled wine, mince pies and marshmallows drenched in chocolate, while the younger guests enjoyed visits to Santa, face painting and balloon modelling.
Among those in attendance were Sonya Lennon and family, mum-to-be Pamela Flood and her beau Ronan Ryan, Rachel Kavanagh, Lisa Murphy, Arnotts CEO Nigel Blow, Avril and Sharon Bannerton, Lord Mayor Gerry Breen, Karen Koster, Rhona Blake, Justin Green of MCD and Jessie Collins of Irish Tatler.
The ice rink at Arnotts is open daily from 9.30am – 9.30pm until 9th January and tickets are available from http://www.arnotts.ie/ and the iceline on 0818 717 200.
