... but was fine once I got used to it. The seaweed also gives the water a silky, kind of oil constancy. Rubbing it on myself felt like being rubbed with the finest bath oils. I left the Bath feeling like I was walking on air, and my skin felt amazing for days afterwards. If I lived there, you'd never get me out of the place.
From the bath was a rather boring drive through to Westport. I got in fairly late, but it was worth it for such an interesting, and totally unplanned, day.
... beats a good old fashioned map really! So we picked up a lonely planet to help us on our way :)

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.
