                        Maol Reidh Hotel and Pub                                                     Evening of August 28

            

The Maol Reidh Hotel is a charming small hotel set in the picturesque village of Tullycross on Connemara's rugged West coast, part of the Wild Atlantic Way. As well as the Maol Reidh Hotel the village of Tullycross is famous for itís thatched cottages and two lively traditional Irish pubs.

     

We were surprised to this plaque in the lobby of the hotel - a poem written by Ireland's famous poet - Thomas Kinsella. For more info on Thomas go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Kinsella
