Day two of our trip was pretty simple. We wanted to end up at the Slieve League cliffs and see as much as we could on the way. Sadly, time was against us, so we decided to cut down through the county. We missed out on a lot of the Wild Atlantic Way route. We had another glorious day though and I’m so grateful!
A couple of weeks ago, me and Eoghan did another bit of Wild Atlantic Way exploring. I’ve just realised, almost all my posts have been on WAW road trips, so for those of you who don’t know what it is, the Wild Atlantic Way is a driving route along the entire Atlantic coast of Ireland, starting in west Cork all the way to Donegal.
Fort Dunree is an 18th-century defensive site perched on cliffs alongside Lough Swilly on the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal. Always keen to do a bit of exploring, I stopped off on a recent visit. I found the place to be so interesting, steeped in history with plenty of walking paths and information boards dotted around the grounds. And, as you can imagine, incredible Donegal views in all directions.

We finally did our Cork trip. We went to the city for a night and then made our way to Kinsale – the beginning of the Wild Atlantic Way, and continued it along as far as Mizen Head, somewhere we’ve wanted to go for a while.
Midway through January, we were off on a longer road trip. It had been months since we’d gone away for longer than a day, so with a couple of days to spare, we thought what better time. We were initially meant to go to Cork, but because of a few hiccups, car troubles and such, we were late leaving and headed for Galway instead.
