In Ballyshannon you need a good pair of legs,cos you will be standing a lot!! :mrgreen: The pubs are filled with tribute bands performing Rory"s music but I love the acoustic sessions by Barry in Rory's first home Owen Roe's Bar. The Big Tent is great as well. They also have an outdoor Rory tribute concert outside Owen Roe's Bar. There is a nice Chinese take away not far from it. I am sure they will have the Rory travelling exhibition as well. The town really comes alive with Rory fans , revellers and festival goers. Subrata.x

A few Rory synchronicities have happened over summer. I will explain another time.
We are hoping next year to go to the Beara peninsula in West Cork to see a Tibetan Buddhist Healing retreat. Its been there for 30 years and its very famous. We will then travel into Cork for the festival.
My new Manager Noreen (she is from West Cork and her brother did Rory's concert lights) suggested travelling around the ring of Kerry. We feel Rory wants us to visit West Cork, as we done the East already. I really want to see the Buddhist retreat. Subrata. X

Oops did I make a mistake booking this? I wasn't planning on hiring a car. I suppose there will be other people staying there for the festival.

Thanks for the maps Jay Jay. It really does look remote. I suppose on the positive side it will be nice and quiet and far enough away from the centre for those of us wishing to retire to bed early :)

You've got Willie for one who's staying at the Creevy Pier Hotel too. He could possibly be a gent and give you a lift into Ballyshannon ;)
Otherwise if you have got a no charge free cancellation to this hotel ? Try where Suby suggested as you know there is the free shuttle bus from Bundoran?
