... those in a couple of days but the drive was really nice. And yes we visited a cafe, a really good one in Killybegs (strange name). The previous day was all south on the Wild Atlantic Way so to be travelling North was a bit strange. Diversions off are on even smaller roads which are almost invariably single car wide which means average speed is not very high and often it's reverse time. The wild Atlantic Way is sort of long a really long Great ...

There aren't lots of photos because the awesome views were there all the time and we almost become a little blasť about them.

... a couple of photo stops while we travelled further south west along the coast.
First at Mountbatten castle- he was murdered by the IRA- they blew up his fishing boat with himself and a handful of other people on board.
Next we stopped at Yeats's gravesite- he was a well know playwright - I guess!
Lots of great photo ops this afternoon.
Just settled in to the Raddison for the nite.
