Ballybunion is one of the loveliest towns and even though I don't play golf the beaches alone are worth the trip. This September will be my 5th trip to County Kerry and over the weekends I stay at the Cliff House. The hotel is comfortable; it's the people that make it charming and inviting. The owners are welcoming; the dining room staff is the friendliest anywhere and the food is excellent (the soda bread is to die for). Highlight for me is the entertainment in the pub when everyone gets together and sings along with Noel Nash and his traditional ballads. The locals are chatty and inclusive and inquisitive, and the pub exudes hospitality, song and laughter long after closing, especially when, on an off night, Noel can be persuaded to go home and fetch his guitar and start to sing all over again. Wouldn't miss it for the world.
