Note(s)The visitors' book is a neglected source for the study of travel and hotel history in Ireland. Inscriptions from the Gweedore Hotel Book from 1842 to 1859 illuminate how guests negotiated relationships with each other and with the landlord, Lord George Hill, and how they narrated spaces inside and outside the hotel on his estate in Co. Donegal.
