Donegal Sheephaven Bay 2017

Donegal Sheephaven Bay 2017

With a personality that is both rugged and awe-inspiring, Donegal seems more like a country than a county.

With a personality that is both rugged and awe-inspiring, Donegal seems more like a country than a county.  Isolated wild landscapes give way to soaring sea-cliffs and deserted white sandy beaches. Mount Errigal dominates the landscape of the far north-west of Donegal as it towers above the Poisoned Glen. To the north, the land sweeps down from Muckish towards Horn Head, Doe Castle and Sheephaven Bay. Donegal lets you to sit back, slow down, admire the view and recall a gentler pace of life – the perfect escape.

 

The Shandon Hotel & Spa is situated close to the small village of Portnablagh offering wonderful views of the Sheephaven Bay. The hotel re-opened in March 2016 under new ownership with an upgrade to four star status. The hotel has 50 en-suite bedrooms each with flat screen TV, hairdryer, tea/coffee making facilities and free WiFi. There is complimentary use of the leisure club which features a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and gym.

Day 2

Our tour today takes us around the Bloody Foreland - the name does not refer to some glorious battle, but simply the colours that the setting sun casts on the rocks. From here we pass through the Rosses and Gweedore. At Dunlewy Visitor Centre at the foot of Mount Errigal we get an insight into what life was like here for those who migrated to America and often never saw ‘Sweet Donegal’ again. We return to Sheephaven in time to enjoy the hotel facilities before dinner.
