Donegal & Sligo


Was wondering where to go this time and finally selected Donegal. As usual this too was a weekend trip with some of my friends & in a car. Donegal is the north most part of Republic Ireland and is a wonderful county (County~State in India). You can say its the end of Europe, cross the Atlantic and you will reach USA. Donegal is around 200Km from Athlone. On the way we visited Sligo too.

Driven a Volkswagen Golf for the first time, its an amazing car. Though its a hatchback I could see 9 airbags in it, only when I started feeling the power of the engine I understood why its required 🙂

In Ireland not you or your camera can produce great photos unless the weather allows you to do so, in this trip I was lucky with the weather for 50% of the time. Here are some photos,

Arranmore island, they say in 1980s many Irish have left this shore for US.
Driving is an Art, so is Parking.
