The Hills of Donegal are calling and after a jaw opening drive over the Glengesh Pass, we’ll visit the Assaranca Waterfall.

Before we ‘lay our hat’, we might try the local Portnoo crab, before hitting Nancy’s on Front Street, to learn a "cúpla focal" (few words of Irish) and down a champagne and oyster shot, (yes, it’s a thing). Estimated driving time: 3 hours, 30 minutes Excluding stops” – Overnight Ardara, Ireland
