Off we go! To the cliffs of Donegal! It's a bit longer trip, cuz we planned to spend the whole day out there, and till Donegal it takes some time to get there. 
When we almost arrived in An Charaig (english name for this is:Kilcar) - we decided to have some breakfast at a store, some coffe for our blood-pressure and few croisants cuz we became hungry. the women at the store expained to us the way but - as she said - had to ask somebody later again in order to manage to find the way to the cliffs. There were some signs in the village, nevertheless we lost the way. We had to ask few people before we found it again, but it's been worth the efford we made.
The funny thing is, that passing by - you have to open the gates (which are situated just on the roads - hahaha the people on the Green Island seem to like the road-gates) by yourself and then to close it as well, in order to not let the sheep out from their meaddow.

:D:D 
Then we climbed up on the hills with a kinda serpentine road as narrow as only one car suits between the rocks and the edge. Even on our way there were scenic views which we liked but which were only partly that beatuful as the cliffs themselves. Finally we get to the top of the cliffs. It's stunning! The colors and the immensity of the space! The splashing waves forcing the coast! Oh boy! That's pretty nice place on earth! That's pretty nice experience of nature!

As we came down back to the civilisation - we visited the port and had lunch at the resto in Na Ceala Beaga (english name Killybegs - sounds  a bit 'poor' not as mystic as irish). Another Guinness at a bar and we were ready to go back home (i mean our irish home in Derrylin) :D:D:D
