So, had a one night pass, so three of us headed for Arranmore Island off the west coast of Donegal
Crossed the border at Pettigo, skirted round Donegal, through Killybegs & our first stop at the falls below Carrick

Within staggering distance from the local pub (far end of the beach)
A great night in the pub. Early ferry off in the morning & home for lunch.
A well recommended trip for anyone. Lovely island & people. Ferry runs all year round €20 return for motorbike & rider (thumbs)
