For the last couple of years every summer we have left the children with my Mom for a couple of days and we have headed off to my favourite county in Ireland, Donegal. One of the reasons I love Donegal so much is because we can hop in the car at my house and be somewhere amazing an hour and a half later. Donegal has a really rugged and beautiful landscape and I absolutely love it. The Donegal people are very friendly and it is easy to fall into conversation with total strangers, something the Irish are known for. Good food and music are in abundance and as we like to say there is always some craic around every corner.
Below are some snaps from my last visit.
It is easy to see why I love this place so much. I am already planning our next visit. The last time we went we stayed in the Beach Hotel Downings. You can visit their website here. They served good food, had live music every night and the rooms were comfortable. If we were staying in the same area again I would definitely stay here again but to be honest we are more likely to stay and discover a different area next summer.
You can't guarantee the weather but you can guarantee a really good time.
