Would anyone have memories or knowledge of a guest house in Lahinch near the sea front
called GASTHOF and owned by a Paddy Brennan of Meelick? I saw it in the late forties.
The term means guest house in German.

Hi

Just wondering had you tried the Clare Library site? There is some info in the genealogy section "Houses and their occupiers"

http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... houses.htm

Also 2 photos show up in the foto section. If you type Gasthof in the search box you'll find them

Hope that helps.

Thanks Lenc.
I have found the premises on two photos.
Paddy Brennan was a significant War of Independence figure in Clare.

The Gasthof was also called the Dell and the premises is mentioned in an article on
Lahinch carried on the County Library website.
