Discover IRELAND: Slieve League Cliffs of Donegal


On our last leg of discovering Ireland, we drove to Slieve League Cliffs in County Donegal. From there, we had magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean, Sligo mountains, and Donegal Bay. It was an hour-and-a-half drive from County Sligo, and once again, the trip was blessed with fine weather. 

I've included some photos from my Instagram account, for which a camera phone is very handy for some shots that couldn't wait to be composed on my Canon. 


Stopped by the above scenery on the way to the cliffs. Everywhere in the country is pure calmness, it felt like bottling it up and taking it home with me.









Slieve League's highest point is at 1,998 feet, which can be reached via One Man's Pass. We'd scale that next time when we're more prepared.











On our way back to Sligo, we drove past these sheep and rams whose road crossing was interrupted by another vehicle before us, so we had to stop in the middle of the road until their shepherd has herded them to the right direction. It reminded me of my days as a little girl in a small coastal town in the Philippines where I would cycle next to goats, water buffaloes, cows, and chicken.

 I'm indeed a country girl at heart.
