Telegraph hotels are a common feature in small towns here, often on the corner of the central crossroads and of similar design. I  assume they were the main communication hub in past times. This one has had some unfortunate additions and looks slightly down at heel and not very inviting with a large sign offering cheap rooms and burgers. And oh dear, that chimney!

A wet, grey weekend, it feels very Irish!

      But I’m not sure I would book a room there? Perhaps it’s nicer inside.
