It is a slow day in a little Greek Village. The rain is beating
  down and the streets are deserted.

Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on 
credit.

On this particular day a rich German tourist is driving through
the village, stops at the local hotel and lays a €100 note on the
desk, telling the hotel owner he wants to inspect the rooms
upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.

The owner gives him some keys and, as soon as the visitor has
walked upstairs, the hotelier grabs the €100 note and runs next
door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the €100 note and runs down the street to repay
his debt to the pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the €100 note and heads off to pay his bill
at the supplier of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmers' Co-op takes the €100 note and runs to pay
his drink bill at the tavern.

The pub owner slips the money along to the local prostitute
drinking at the bar, who has also been facing hard times and has
had to offer him "services" on credit.

The hooker then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to
the hotel owner with the €100 note.

The hotel proprietor then places the €100 note back on the counter
so the rich traveller will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveller comes down the stairs, picks up the
€100 note, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the
money, and leaves town.
No one produced anything.
No one earned anything.
However, the whole village is now out of debt and looking to the
future with a lot more optimism.

And that is how the bailout package works!

Located near the Doolin pier. Your ideal base for exploring the North Clare area. 2 minute walk to the Aran Ferries.

Camping in Doolin.
Centrally located in the village of Doolin on an unique setting over looking the Aille River. Riverside Camping is a small, friendly, family run park.

My favourite eatery on the Aran Islands. You just have to try the fresh Aran crab claws. Good value here with an extensive menu. Do finish off with one of their superb Irish coffees.

Not Hen or Stag friendly. My recommendation is to avoid. There are lots of suitable venues in Kilkenny, this is not one of them.

My local for nearly 30 years. Great atmosphere. Good grub for breakfast and lunch. Great venue for big matches on lots of screens.
