The Skisters Do Ireland

Day 10 & 11: Donegal & Antrim Coast

Filed under: Uncategorized — skisters @ 5:48 pm

Well we didn’t update you much yesterday, but we just kinda hung out in Donegal and looked around, then had dinner (??) at a pub.  Dinner consisted of chips (fries) and wine.  Dinner of champions.  Then we called it a night.

These pictures are from our night in Connemara of the sunset.  These were taken at about 10:15 pm.  It stays light here so late!  And gets light so early in the morning (like 4am!).  It’s a little odd.

These are the only pictures we took in Donegal.  St. Patrick’s Church and the river that runs through the city.

After another scenic drive, we made it to Northern Ireland.  More specifically Castlerock which is on the Antrim Coast.  Things in Northern Ireland are a little different than Ireland.  Northern Ireland is part of the UK, so they use pounds instead of Euros.  The speed limits in Northern Ireland are in miles per hour…which is fine except that the car only gives me kilometers per hour.  Oh well…guess we’ll just go with the flow of traffic.

We were quite pleased with our hostel.  It’s right on the beach.  And that would be the view from our room.

We took a little stroll along the beach…which was quite pretty.

We’re off to explore the city outside of Castlerock (Colerain) since there’s not much near our hostel besides the beach.

See you in Belfast tomorrow!




  1. This is a good idea to blog about your vacation! I love looking at your pictures and it will be like a journal for you to have later.
