A very nice hotel adjacent to the beach. Rooms were fine with hotel / dining making for a very comfortable stay, We visited there again for a drink in 2010 - starting to look a little tired (perhaps symptomatic of the economy at the time).

After walking around awhile we wanted to grab dinner. Since it is ...
... on a different road and stopped in Killyleagh which was a nice little town with a great French-looking castle and colourful shops and houses. We went for a harbour-side walk. Everything was so calm. Ben took lots of photos. We looped back to the van and went off in search of an official Aire that was in our Camperstop book but there was no sign of it when we got there. So we went on to another one 6 miles away on Sketrick Island. Lovely setting and ...
