Molly our ten year old Golden Retriever has been swimming in the sea all over Ireland, she has loved the water since she was about one year old.

We have been on holiday with her during this ten years to just about every coastal county in Ireland. The beaches being our favourite places to visit. One of the most memorable beaches was Malin beg, in county Donegal.

We stayed here for an afternoon about three years ago and we all went for a swim in the warm waters.

If you get to visit Donegal, I would highly recommend this beach as a must visit location.

      • Yeah they certainly keep us on our toes. They just can’t get enough exercise. And they don’t mind water they just won’t get in and swim. They’ll only get their paws wet but won’t go any further.

      • You see them charging through rivers in the hills when they hunt and some course-race them though rivers. So I thought they must be ok when not too deep in.

        Great dog’s, but I think now our dog has slowed down a little I will stay with the retrievers πŸ™‚

  3. Hello Molly!

    Nigel these are just terrific! The third one where she’s howling with joy is fantastic, as if she’s saying, “I just had a swim and I love life!!”

    A really beautiful gallery.
