Craigie's Hotel (Ireland's answer to Fawlty Towers)

Craigie's Hotel (Ireland's answer to Fawlty Towers)

ByRamor Craigie

I invite you to share my experiences in running a seasonal hotel somewhere in the rural west of Ireland. Most of the stories are based on fact but were written up in retrospect. During our time bigger and better surrounding hotels in the region became bankrupt and I still wonder why and how we managed to survive. We had emigrated from Dublin to the West with no knowledge of the Hotel business. It was the early eighties when a serious depression gripped Ireland and Blinki that is my wife and two young girls and I, suffered culture shock appearing to move back in time by thirty years. We had to adapt to a new way of life, speech, culture and people, which is pretty much what these stories attempt to do and to open a window as to how it was then, in a place that has since changed utterly and forever.
