OK, I know it was ages ago. Autumn now but way back in the summer we went to very sunny Donegal, and it really was sunny. We booked last minute so didn't have lots to choose from but that probably helped, we decided on Culdaff on the north coast. So north in fact, it's higher up than where we live even though it's technically the South.
It all turned out perfectly: a lovely cottage on the side of a hill, brilliant weather, a beautiful beach 10 minutes away and all just a 2 hour drive from Belfast.
The boys loved the beach so that's where we were almost every morning. While we couldn't keep Noah's cloths on him, Seth was rarely out of his, preferring to wrap up in the sun.
On the odd rainy day we ventured further (but not much) and explored, for example, Greencastle, where you can (and we did) get a 10 minute ferry crossing to, would you believe it, Northern Ireland.
This is the view from our cottage by the way.
An here if Five Fingered Strand. Stunning. And that's us at Ireland's most northerly point, Malin Head where we held on tight because it was a bit windy.
The on the way home we stopped off at Bushmills for the short steam train ride to the Giants Causeway. It was a superb holiday.
