Last few days in Ireland

I have been in Ireland for nearly five weeks and have had an opportunity to visit many different areas of the country. I look forward to sharing stories, photos and video footage from my trip in the months to come. In the meantime, my last few days in Ireland have been spent in the northwestern part of the country, in the northern part of the Wild Atlantic Way called, Donegal.

Some of the highlights in Donegal included Slieve League (also known as Sliabh Liag in Irish), which are some of the highest sea cliffs in all of Ireland at nearly 2000′.

While in Donegal I stayed at an amazing five-star castle called Lough Eske. Located on a secluded lakeside estate just outside the town of Donegal, this castle has a rich history dating back to the 15th Century. Many of the common areas of the hotel had comfy seating with wood-burning fireplaces keeping the place quite cozy.

I also stayed at a remote lighthouse for a couple of days at St. John’s Point. This was an extraordinary experience to live like a lighthouse keeper in the rugged and romantic environment sounding this spot of land shown in the image below.

Tomorrow I head to Dublin on the other side of the country to fly back to the States. Have you ever been to Ireland and road tripped the Wild Atlantic Way, if so, please leave a comment below and share your experience.
