Surfing in Strandhill

Emily Cliff Jumps into Donegal Bay

Emily took the plunge off these 50+ft cliffs in Bundoran to the applause of many.

Seaweed Baths

That's right -- I'm the seaweed ninja!

Knocknarea Hike

Emily and I hiked up Knocknarea mountain. At the top is a cairn which is supposed to contain the grave of Queen Maeve. We saw lots of horses, sheep, and cows along the trail.

Carramore Tombs

Carrowmore (Irish for Great Quarter) contains approximately 30 megalithic tombs created between 4300 and 3500 BC. These tombs are 'dolmen circles'; small dolmens with boulder circles of 12 to 15 meters around them.
