Watch: 'Oh Santa' - Adorable moment Donegal kid mistakes bearded man as Santa

Mark McConville

It's a magical time of year and for one Irish toddler the excitement was almost too much when she encountered 'Santa' in a Donegal hotel.

Molly Keogh, who is just 18-months old,couldn't contain her excitement when a white bearded man walked into the Caislean Oir hotel in Annagry on Sunday.

"We were out for lunch in Caislean Oir in Annagry, Donegal and I was filming her as she was messing with a bowl of sugar," Molly's aunt Megan told

"Then a couple walked in and she casually says 'oh Santa' and keeps repeating it, and it just so happens he’s wearing a Christmas jumper"

The Santa look-alike took it in his stride and responded in the best way.

"He can be heard saying 'ho ho ho' back to her and he was very good with her."
