A Day Trip to Inishowen Donegal

Inishowen Culdaff

Cove at Culdaff

During our recent stay in Benone, we decided to catch the ferry from Magilligan, on the North Coast of Northern Ireland,  to Greencastle in the South, to explore the Inishowen region of Donegal.

It’s not somewhere I had ever been, so I randomly picked Culdaff as our first stop, and what a beautiful place it was. Just 10 miles from the ferry we found ¬†golden sandy beaches, a quiet cove, a play park for the kids and the Atlantic Ocean shimmering in every shade from tourquoise to cobalt blue! As part of the Wild Atlantic Way coastal route, this little gem is unmissable, and much better than my photo’s suggest!

Portstewart STrand beach, Northern Ireland

A Day at Portstewart Strand

It is no secret that I love Portstewart Strand. Two miles of soft golden sand, managed by the National Trust. Undoubtedly, my love of this beach is in part due to the happy memories I have of playing here as a child. There was nothing better than packing up the car with a picnic and heading to the beach for the day. Now, I am thrilled to be able to do the same for my children! And sometimes we even manage to stay for a few days!
