I have very fond memories of 'Bofin going back to 1989. It's a very special place and you can forget going to bed until 0300, at the earliest. The harbour/moorings have to be the safest in the west. Day's was a nice hotel in those times, Island Style tho . I've been pushing my crowd to return there with Ribs and Feeling for some time.

Damn, I'm feeling all warm and fluffy now

We spent a night in Bofin when doing out Round Ireland Trip in 2009 - I would definately recommend it!

Granted we had our own accomodation (We did the trip in a Sunseeker Manhattan) but the hotel there is lovely - Get in touch with them, might be able to work out a deal.

Make sure you call into Day's Pub (beside the hotel) for a pint - we did so and had to be carried out
