The Donegal region
The Townland of Teelin near the Village of Carrick is nestled in the foothills of Slieve League, and is the ideal escape from a fast paced lifestyle.
In the summer, there are regular festivals down at the pier, including the local boat races which are fiercely contested by rival villages. Carrick is on the route of the Tour of Donegal, and Tour of Ireland bike races, perfect to see national champions and pro's up close.
Slieve League backs onto the Atlantic ocean, and the cliffs of Bunglass are the second highest in Europe. It is 5km to the viewing platform, and a provides spectacular panoramic views.
There is a traditional Pub 500 metres away and a seasonal visitors centre for the cliffs of Bunglass.
Teelin itself is incredibly rugged, and feels the full force of the North Atlantic, so pack warm jumpers to stay cosy. However, because of the fresh air, on a sunny day it is absolutely glorious. Be prepared for all extremes of weather, rain or shine.
South-west Donegal is unspoilt by modern civilisation. The small local communities revolve around the farming and fishing industries, and are famously friendly.
Glencolumbkille Folk Village is 10km away, with its traditional stone cottages really gives an insight into the lives of the locals before 1950, when the first electricity was introduced.
Kilybegs is the closest small town, and was once the premier fishing port in Europe. You can source the catch of the day from a small white van on the edge of the Harbour.
Donegal Town, 45 minutes drive away is the centre of local tourism. It is a great place to explore the craft shops and Magee's, famous for Donegal Tweed clothing.
8km inland is Ardara, the home of famous playwright Brian Friel, nestled within deep valleys, it gives you a true sense of being at the mercy of the elements.
Bear Grylls described Donegal as "a forbidding coastline", and is at the elements of the weather. It is ruggedly beautiful and really does take your breath away.
