I’m reluctant to play into that Irish stereotype but as an Irishman, hard-hitting journalist and fan of incompetence, I thought I’d post this baffling piece of signage spotted in a Donegal hotel.

My sister sent these on to me following a short stay in An Chúirt in Gweedore.

Her room number was 225 and this was the first sign she encountered, which way would you go?


The surprising answer is LEFT.

She encountered a similar problem shortly afterwards, bear in mind she’s still looking for 225!


The answer is RIGHT.

Don’t worry, my sister found her room eventually and was only mildly inconvenienced. She probably had a lovely stay, I didn’t ask about that.

Was this worth posting? You decide!
