Bush Hotel Review

One of Ireland's most historic hostelries, with roots stretching back to 1794, this convivial option enjoys a central location in the heart of Carrick. Leaning heavily on its past, the hotel showcases displays of its memorabilia although it has undergone renovation. Guest rooms are comfortable and unfussy; ask for a modern room at the rear away from street noise. In a nation overflowing with panini addicts and pizza junkies, it's reassuring to find a place where lunchtime diners can enjoy hearty platefuls of roast beef, potatoes, and peas while soaking up a cross-section of local Leitrim life.
