... up, the driver looks at us with our backpacking backpacks, slows down, then keeps on driving. Well, one more bus at 5:45 we might as well try. So, we walk across town to catch the bus, grab a cup of hot chocolate while we wait and finally get on the bus and get back to the Cavan bus station at nine. However, now we can't get ahold of anyone else. So we catch a ride with a stranger who heard we were looking for wifi (which is gold out here in Ireland) find the address of ...
Traveled to Killybegs and the Glencomlcille region today. Killybegs was formerly a major fishing port but due to the economics of fishing and the EU has a smaller presence in the fishing industry. An interesting little village. Wish I could record the smell -- FISH!!!!!! The water in the bay was like a glass, a sign of calm weather we had been told and indeed, the weather held for us!! Just missed seeing the prime ...
... fresh seafood. Saw signage for the oldest law firm in Ireland -- Argue and Phibbs (I kid you not) -- across from the Sligo County courthouse, which looks like a castle. From Sligo we made our way to Ballybofey, stopping at Drumcliffe Cemetery where Yeats is buried in view of the mountain of Ben Bulben, which figured in some of his poems. The Anglican Church at Drumcliffe is small and so pretty -- they were bringing in fall harvest items ...
... in a place called Pat's. Daddy tried calling my great uncle, but he wasn't home. We looked around the town and saw my first ever castle, a place built by a guy named Hugh the Hospitable. We then drove out to Belcoo and I met another cousin named Mickey. Mickey was hypnotizing and I couldn't take my eyes off of him. I saw a bunch of sheep, some that were black, and an alpaca. ...
... The artists describe the murals as follows: “This is real art done by the people and for the people. That’s what makes it authentic. That’s what gives it meaning in a world where meaning has all but been destroyed by ambition and the greed for money. It honours our past.

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Central Hotel Bundoran
Not switched on
Rooms fairand staff told porkies for the duration of my stayregarding the switching on of the steam room in the mini gym.
Stayed at this hotel just a coupleof weeks ago and found the hotel clean and friendly. The food was good and my friends and I had a great time. I would recommend it.
Just spent a fantastic weekend in Bundoran at the Grand Central Hotel!! Bundoran is buzzing with activity and the people are really friendly. The hotel was excellent - very clean and had everything you could possibly want. There is a small gym and a steam room which was nice to relax in! The Central Bar in the hotel was great - live music & open fire. Would definately recommend it.
Is there a rating lower than terrible?
Rooms were dirty, staff very unfriendly, had to clear our own tables in restaurant, food cold and bland, Manager refused to meet us to discuss our complaints, very disappointed all round,a great let down, apparently staff problems in kitchen , which should reflect on guests who havee paid good money. No apologies were offered only excuses. Not to be Recommended.
Bring a tent
The toilets are filthy, the staff are unhelpful and rude and there is a limited choice of beers in the bar.
Accommodation and Faire Good
Just come back from St Patricks weekend celebrations. Staff could not do enough for you. food was of high quality and well presented
I stayed @ the Grand Central, a few times of the summer of 2002, I found the staff friendly & helpfulthe food was good, any problem I had was quickly sorted out, I would recommend for a family break
the food was a disgrace, the manageement were rude but on the bright side i found the restaurant staff lovely in particular a blond girl called Sarah who brightened up my stay in the dump
what can i say the place is a pig sty...... wait a minuite thats unfair, to the pig sty. The food or so they called it reaked of some foul odour. I have to say that the management were very good, at nothing, very snotty, knew everything, u were just another smug they could take advantage off, i think its safe to say that i wont be returning, but the bar was quite nice, one fella in particular stood out, a ginger lad, very friendly with frightinly handsome good looks.
Eat till you burst!!
Very comfortable rooms, friendly staff, delicious food served in ample portions, if you leave feeling hungry, boy, do you have a problem!!!
Great entertainment. Loved Fiddlers Green, atmosphere was so good.
