The Harbour, Mullaghmore, Co. Sligo, Ireland
If there's a chill in the air, you can warm up at the roaring fires in the restaurant and residents' lounge of this large harborside Victorian hotel. The exterior of the simple, three-story building wears a dashing coat of red. Inside, nautical accents tout the history of the bay (three galleons of the Spanish Armada went aground here in September 1588). Enjoy wonderful views of the pier and the bay from the hotel bars, or tuck into the restaurant's acclaimed seafood menu. Try the favorites: hot crab claws, lobster, and the house seafood platter. In the Boatman's bar you can snack on chicken burritos or enjoy fish chowders. Special packages such as active retirement breaks are available; check website for details.
