Another overcast and wet day on the west coast of Ireland. Travelled firstly to the Cliffs of Moher which are high cliffs on the Atlantic coast. Unfortunately visibility was reduced to almost nil. Nextly drove through limestone district of Burren ...
... 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 ...
... br> I helped carry gear to the car and I had the first time novelty of carrying a board that fitted under my arm! I felt cool.
It was windy and I still had bikinis on.
Then it was farewell, in which one guy came up for a hug voluntarily and then through peer pressure, they all seemed to haha.
Then I was back to being on my own, but only while I went to kfc.
... was fun.
Honestly guys don't realise how easy they get it (Patrick...told you I mention everything).
A couple of the guys went back in at what I thought was 5 (it was 8, but saying that I thought it was 7 and it was 4:30) and I went with two of them to go and watch from the rocks.
The light doesn't makes sense up here. It wasn't dark until 11! And I think the only reason Patrick came ...
... that by the time I reach Dublin, it will be even more.
I have spent my night with a giant cup of tea (there were no mugs so I used a jug…) and a collection of notes writing and writing. So I am technically up-to-date at my end.
Although, you haven’t read any of them so you still think I am in Derry. Sly girl Lisa. Sly.
Actually, given there are about 6 entries before this one, you would know exactly where I am.
Lisa xo ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Harvey's Point Donegal
we stayed in harvey's point, lough eske on saturday night the 18th of february 2006.
We have just returned from a 2 day trip to Harveys Point and have to say we were very pleasantly pleased with the standard of accommodation. We had booked a premium suite in the new building and were reallly impressed with both it's tasteful decor and level of comfort. There is very little that they have not thought of in the rooms, from piped music in the massive modern bathrooms - lovely when you are lying in your jacuzzi - to separate hallways to diminish noise levels and a proper bar area for preparing drinks. The bedroom area was big enough to house of party of people and the proper king-size beds were very welcome!! (There are older chalet-style rooms on the grounds, but they didnt look too great!). The setting on the lake is magical and I can only imagine it's even nicer in the summer. The food in the restaurant was very good and at €50 for a five course dinner, was excellent value for money - though we did see some guests complaining about the service. Overall it was very welcoming and they have done an excellent job with their new renovation. Would definitely return again (and we are very fussy guests!).
Good Food/Setting - Awful Service!!!
We visited Harveys Point Hotel for Christmas Day and found it very disappointing. The food was beautiful as was the setting however it would have been nice if the service had even been average. We had to ask on 4 occasions to have the table cleared between courses; no staff came near us at all to find out if we were enjoying our meal or if we needed anything else; and as for the table decoration (or lack of it), there was one cracker and nothing else!!! When paying, we were greeted with "What table were you at?" with no mention of either please/thank you/did you have a nice day?. Honestly, this was an extremely disappointing visit and one that our family will not be repeating.
A little peice of heaven
stayed in harveys point in september this year had to say it was the most relaxing,homely and beautiful location i have ever been in if you want to unwind this is the place to be
I would like to clarify something that a guest wrote earlier under the title "you gotta be kidding"
I have travelled all over the world and have never experienced such a welcoming and luxurious hotel. Myself and my husband stayed in one of the hotel's newly built executive suites and I have to say it was the most relaxing time I have spent anywhere in a long time, from our room the lake views were set off by a mountainous backdrops and beautiful forest ranges were exhilarating, our huge four post bed to the whirlpool Jacuzzi. A unique place that I have yet to see replicated.
You have got to be kidding?
This is a beautiful spot! What we drove all the way to Donegal for. The price we payed was very expensive for the one night but we decided to splurge in this case. The breakfast was the best we had in our two weeks in Ireland and the view while enjoying it was also not to be missed! What really ticked me off was while signing our bill at check out there is room for a gratuity at the bottom of the credit card print out slip? We left the waitress a tip and the maid a tip but in all my years of traveling I have never tipped (or will I ever) the front desk clerk at check out... for what, running my credit card payment? Then to top it all off upon leaving I asked some info about the area and boy was the clerk rude (cause I didn't tip her) too bad!
We luckily only stayed one night in this "hotel", I use the inverted commas as the level of accommodation we enjoyed was the worst I've come across in Ireland.
Nice place to stay
A quiet pleasure
If you want to get away and have time to hear yourself think, this is a perfect place. Our room faced the lake and was a short walk from the main building. The food was above average. This is a popular place for weddings, so parking can be a problem. We would stay again.
