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.
About two weeks after our previous trip we headed off again, on a roll we were! This time, to find us some windmills.
This trip was quite a while ago – January 3rd, around the time of Storm Eleanor actually, but I had some pictures I wanted to post, so whats more perfect than here. Me and Eoghan used to be so good for getting in the car and just going somewhere. When winter came it became much more of a rarity with working hours and it getting dark so early. Also the cold. The cold is not my friend! So glad we took this trip along the Wild Atlantic Way!
