... a Sunday. We drove further west to Port Rush, which had more shops open, and stopped for a round of large hot chocolates while Jo-ann wrote on the postcards. We made good use of the free wifi to find accommodation for the night. A search on Booking.com around Ballyshannon showed a number of available hotels from hostels to resort spas.
