One of our famous guests was "Che Guevara" who made a visit to Ireland in 1961 and stayed with us here at" The Strand" .
We actually have the original visitors book that he signed if you would like so see it !!!!
A brief letter he wrote then, dated December 18, 1964, reads:
With the anchor dropped and the boat at a standstill, I am in this green Ireland of your ancestors. When they found out, the [Irish] television came to ask me about the Lynch genealogy, but in case they were horse thieves or something like that I didn't say much.
We're waiting for you
