Emma, 8, from Wexford, loves all things “Princess” and when she had the opportunity to receive a wish, she took it with both hands and wished for a Princess tea party in a castle.

The Wish granting team got straight to work on finding a location fit for Princess Emma and her wish, and in Ireland there are plenty of great locations to choose from. After some detailed planning, Princess Emma’s wish day happened in December, and she had a festive tea party with her family and some special guests at Waterford Castle.

 Princess Emma received the royal treatment throughout her stay in Waterford Castle, with a red-carpet entrance, and a throne just for her. Princess Emma and her family enjoyed their tea party in their own private room. After some yummy food and some time to relax, they went on a trip to “The Enchanted Garden” were they got to see some beautiful light displays and enjoy some warm drinks. After all her wish day treats, Princess Emma and her family stayed in Waterford Castle Hotel for a royal sleep.

A huge thank you to all the local suppliers who pulled together to make this wish come true for Princess Emma. Thank you to Gillian and all the staff at Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort for a fabulous location and providing a royal treatment. Thank you to Jenny MG Photography, to Edel and staff at Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens, to Eamonn for his taxi service, and to Balloon Lane.
