Its the weekend so I just wanted to share one of my favorite places in Ireland, the coastal mountains of Slieve-League , County Donegal.

This location is one of the most Beautiful spots in Ireland, looking out directly towards county Sligo and its bay and in land along the coast towards Donegal city itself.

Landscape Locations such as this one are just amazing to visit and all so easy to take for granted, when ever I have to leave a spot like this I make an assumption that I will return one day soon, I know just like us all though , maybe not 🙂 .

So it’s the weekend, if you can get outside , visit your most loved places and don’t rush away back home !!!!!!

We all have our favourite walks , places we come back to in our minds and the walk along the coast line of Croaghlin, Slieveleague, county Donegal, for myself personally is one of the best walks in Ireland.

The views south towards the mountain of Benbulben in North County Sligo are just breath taking here. If you are visiting county Donegal and the weather allows, you simply must visit and walk these coastal paths , a car park is very close to the start of the walk and the path surface is excellent.

The coastline around county Donegal offers some of the best Landscape in Europe with its wonderful small coves and mountains like Slieve league , sitting above the Atlantic ocean.

These images were taken on an October visit and walk along the cliff tops.

Killybegs, County Donegal

Killybegs has a long History with the Irish fishing industry and is one of the top fishing port in the country.

The town is located on the South West Donegal Pennisula, it is an ideal place to base yourself when visiting the North West of Ireland, with locations such as the sea cliffs at Sliabh League.

The day I took these images I spent hours just watching the fishing boats unload, slowly walking along the harbour and taking images of the boats and some views of the town. This is a great location to visit and a festival is held here at the start of August each year which includes music and family entertainment – all live on the festival stage in the centre of the town.

A sense of place, Dunkineely, county Donegal

A little time back we stayed in a small cottage just above the beach at Bruckless, County Donegal, for a couple of weeks. For many county Donegal is one of the most scenic locations in Ireland and this location was a really peaceful and Beautiful place.

Even though this is a very remote area, it has plenty of things going on and has lots of things to see, from Old castles to lighthouses, wind farms too fishing villages and pub with live music.

I very much hope that the images I am posting here get across a sense of this location, It’s a wonderful spot to stay and one of the best holiday you could spend in Ireland.

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.
