Wild Atlantic Way – Carrickfinn Standing Stones to Leo’s Tavern – Day Three – Part 2

After a miserable wet and windy day, we finally reached our last campsite of the journey, Sleepy Hollows! What a name…

Located in the quiet village of Meenaleck, near the Crolly River, we travelled down and around some meandering roads to get to it, but upon arriving we met the owners of the campsite.

The Wilsons operate the site from their home which extends onto the campsite boundary, including their back garden which is utilised for campers, like ourselves! They also have a Glamping pod available, pitches for caravans and welcome dogs on the site.

Wild Atlantic Way – Binion Bay to Glenevin Waterfall – Day Two – Part 1

Day two of our adventure and already we were feeling the temperature decrease.  After having spent our first night in a tent we didn’t really know what to expect. We woke up at 7am due to the wind, light rain and a Donkey crying every 10 minutes! We decided to get up, get dressed and hit the showers!

Where we parked towards the showers was a good few minutes’ walk, not perfect in a cold chilly morning, but needs are a must!
