The Rocky Road To Dublin

... on your phone if you think your power might die.

Well then lisa!

I had 30 minutes to get enough charge to get my ticket!

And in those 30 minutes, i found John and Paul! My two buddies from yesterday.

It was good so see them when I didn't look like a tomato pineapple cross.

And then, my onwards journey began!

And just for you, i have re-written the first verse and chorus of Rocky Road to Dublin ...

The guy from Dooblin

... talking and he was from Dooblin. That's where he said he was from anyway. I think he meant Dublin but yeah.


But I won't be mean about the accent...it's pretty. Irish accents are. Some of them.


He was genuinely so so nice, and easy to talk to. And so quick at getting up on a board!


I got jealous ha.


And I would have said he was quite cute too, but ...

Back at it!

... in to town to get mine in the hope that I would be in before they got out


It was very similar to my board at home. Also got a very think wetsuit, which is good in the water but impossible to get on. And a pair of booties.


I must have looked like a right dag carrying a board on my head from the center of town to Tullen Strand.


But where I was camped was worth it.

The Glass Wave

Before I travelled, I never understood when people said ‘it brings me alive’.
Heck, I still might not. I’m more tired than I’ve ever been in my life, but I know the meaning. The ‘on-top-of-the-world’ feeling.
I surfed back home, not well, but enough to be fun.
And today Sebastian and I were conquering the West Irish coast.
Well, we were getting a lesson in Bundoran so we didn’t kill ourselves.
We got there early ...

    Good Choice

    from

    Went to this hotel in July 2005 after recommendation from a friend.

    Hotel easily found - beautiful site. Found the hotel to be well presented, clean, large rooms (we had a suite which u could happily have lived in). Reception staff very friendly on arrival as were all staff although we found that staff in restaurant could have been more attentive during our evening meal. Food very good although quite pricey for evening meal!

    Hotel lacks atmosphere but this is probably due to its newness. Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending

    Beautiful, classy hotel

    from

    Fabulous hotel - no faults at all

    Everything is brand new from the gym and pool to the restauarant and bedrooms

    We were upgraded to a suite :0) with a seperate lounge and kitchen area - lovely!

    Food in both the Sinergie and Kudos restaurants was excellent.

    Deals are to be had on the internet - our stay for 2 nights B&B and one evening meal and a massage each was only 298 Euros in total!

    Excellent value for money - would go back tommorrow!

    New Clarion Sligo worth a visit

    from

    I stayed in this new 4 star hotel with my husband and 2 young children the August Bank Holiday weekend. We got a great deal at €165 per adult and children staying free. This also included one dinner.We were upgraded to a suite and it was just fantastic! We had a huge bed in the room and an adjoining room with sofabed, kitchen with microwave, fridge and delph/cutlery and dining table, comfy armchairs and another TV. Our children are both very small so it meant we could crack open a bottle of wine wnd have a romantic evening while they slept soundly in the adjoining room. There was a fantastic room service menu available 24 hours. As this was peak season there was some delay, we noticed, on Saturday in rooms being available for arriving guests. However, there was free tea and coffee, cocktail sausages, sandwiches etc for arriving guests . I thought it was a lovely touch. For guests with children there was a supervised play area in the hotel and movies shown in the evenings. This meant parents could dine in comfort alone! Guests were welcome to use the playroom at other times, once they remained there with their children. The hotel is a nice 15 minute walk from town. It is such a beautiful building and the decor is very calming. Apt I suppose when you consider it was once a psychiatric hospital! I promise you there is not a hint of it's former life to be seen!!!! The leisure facilities were beyond reproach also, and spotlessly clean. This was one of the busieat times to visit an Irish hotel but I never once got a sense of the staff feeling under pressure or stressed. The whole stay was very relaxed. I'm sure the prices may go up as the hotel gets better known but I'll definately stay here again and recommend the Clarion Sligo to anyone.

    Great Hotel and Staff

    from

    We had the pleasure of staying at the Clarion Hotel Sligo last Saturday night, and I have to say it was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. I have been in the hotel industry for 8 years and have stayed in lots of top class hotels around the world, and I can easily say this was up there with the best.

    Fantastic Weekend Break

    from

    We have just arrived home from a fantastic weekend at the Clarion Hotel Sligo. The setting, facilities and welcoming staff were outstanding. We look forward to another visit in the near future. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

    Book now!

    from

    We found this hotel without any problems as it is on the main road (Mental Hospital Road!) from Enniskillen. The letter we received prior to departure informed us that our apartment would be ready for 2pm. On arrival at the hotel shortly after 3pm we were told our room would be ready in 30 mins. This 30 minutes became 90 minutes of wheeling an increasingly grouchy 1 year old around the hotel grounds until we were belatedly offered a complimentary drink from the bar.

    Great hotel...

    from

    We'd booked to stay 3 nights in a double room at 99Euro per night.. then on getting to our room we discovered we'd mysteriously been upgraded to a suite with a separate living room/dining area/kitchenette which was brilliant!

    Gorgeous

    from

    If you're looking for a hotel in Sligo, this is the place to stay. Top class. No complaints. Staff great, food lovely, rooms clean, pool relaxing.

    Elegant & Calming Luxury Weekend

    from

    After a recommendation by a collegue who had spent the previous weekend in this hotel with his family, my husband and I decided at the last minute to book this hotel for the Bank Holiday weekend break.

    Gorgeous Hotel 4star+

    from

    Stayed here for one nite in april and was very impressed. Got a great deal with allukhotels. Got a double room for 85Euro. Also checked their website direct think its under quality hotels and can a triple room for just 99Euro. The hotel is brand new. It used to be a mental hospital but dont let that put you off. Its got a very modern design with dark wood and cream and brown decor. The bedrooms were sparkling clean. They also have a leisure centre and spa. Myself and my husband booked in for a shiatsu massage the next morning and they gave it free of charge as they said the treatment rooms were up and running yet. The location is a bit outside the town you would probably need to get a taxi or drive into the town centre.
