In counties Sligo and Donegal, explore pristine surfing beaches, quirky coastal towns, vast moors, historic castles, iconic mountains and sweeping glens.
On Sligo’s Coolera Peninsula, hike mountains like Knocknarea and Ben Bulben, visit the 5,000 year old Megolithic tombs at Carrowmore, and try your hand a surfing in the surf village of Strandhill – or simply the windswept dunes and lakes that inspired Irish poet, W.B. Yeats.
In Donegal – National Geographic Taveller’s pick for No. 1 Coolest Place in 2017 – find windswept beaches and coastal villages clinging to the shores, walk the desolate moors, and explore the eerie valleys and mountains of Glenveagh National Park and beyond. Stand at the other-worldly northernmost point of Ireland as well as at the edge of Slieve League, among the highest sea cliffs in Europe.
Group size good, much easier getting around, able to use the smaller van. I now appreciate a part of Ireland unknown to me previously. The accommodation was centrally located which was excellent for the evenings. A well thought out itinerary with enough activity to fill the day. Highly recommended. We hope to participate in another WI trip in the near future. Having mild weather added to the enjoyment!
