Weekend in Donegal

IMG_20170708_165311

Ireland is subdivided into 4 provinces and 32 traditional counties, each one with a different attractiveness. This weekend was the turn of Donegal County. The idea was to spend the weekend visiting a friend in Letterkenny and between the journey and the short time I had, I was conscious that I couldn’t visit a lot of places.

Leterkenny’s surroundings have a lot of activities and places of interest, but one of the most important attractions is Glenveagh National Park.  It’s one of the six national parks in Ireland, and one of the most peaceful, beautiful and charming.  In Glenveagh National Park you can see mountains, lakes, glens and woods.  I did a walk to Glenveagh Castle, a castellated mansion house built in 1870 by Captain John George Adair, a member of the minor gentry. After that, I sat above the lake and looked at the landscape that extends as far as the eye can see. Without doubt, one of the charms of the National Park.

In the night we went out in Letterkenny, the largest town in County Donegal with an abundance of nightlife and a great atmosphere. First we had dinner with people from a great number of nationalities: United States, Turkey, Spain, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Ireland (of course). Then, we went to the club “Voodoo Venue” to finish the night.

The next day we had to come back on a long bus journey to Drumshanbo, in Leitrim.  I was tired but very happy with my weekend in Donegal!
