This was a good Hotel but not spectacular. It is in the middle of changing owners. In the Pub you could only get beer and wine as they didn't have a full license yet.

One of the reasons we got lost was the difference between Southern (Eire) and Northern Ireland. The Navman has to be told which part it's in, and often we don't know as the border is not clear. It is not just a case of the ...
... and Nephin. It is climbed by pilgrims on Reek Sunday every year, which is the last Sunday in July. It forms the southern part of a U-shaped valley created by a glacier flowing into Clew Bay in the last Ice Age. Croagh Patrick is part of a longer east-west ridge; the westernmost peak is called Ben Gorm. K & M were amazed, as we still are, at the casual parking of car and vans in these busy towns, opposite sides of street, facing ...
