Last April we headed back to Ireland, on my second Wild West Irish Tour. Excited to be exploring the home counties of our family. We loved every minute of it!
We had very little rain, and the brisk wind off the North Atlantic was exhilarating! We even had a couple of snow flurries, but nothing slowed us down. Northern Ireland and County Donegal are just breathtaking! The blue of the water and the beauty of the land are indescribable. I loved our B&B on the Inishowen Peninsula. It is an idyllic location with beautiful views, lovely rooms, delicious breakfasts, cordial hosts, noble farm dogs, and lots and lots of sheep. I could have stayed there forever.
Michael and Trish, the owners of WWIT, had arranged for us to have great local guides who made our experiences so rich. On our last day before going back to Dublin, we returned to Sligo so I could show my son some of the places I had enjoyed on my first WWIT trip, and we could attend a trad music session. We spent a night at the lovely B&B where the Signature Tour Wild Westies stay. It was so good to be in Sligo again!
How lovely it was to get to know this land of our ancestors more deeply. I truly felt like I had come home. And I know one thing for sure… no more big bus tours for me. WWIT’s small group tours are the best!
Thanks for everything Wild West Irish Tours! I can’t wait to return.
