Hotel closed for days
THE Ferrycarrig Hotel closed down for a few days due to the Arctic conditions, which caused booking cancellations and made it difficult for staff to get to work.
The hotel closed on Wednesday and reopened on Saturday morning. It was the first time in the history of the hotel that it shut its doors for business due to the weather.
'We were snowed in. Anyone coming in from the road found it very tricky. All our meeting room bookings were cancelled and bedroom bookings were also cancelled,' said the manager Darragh Harnedy.
