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 – Rosguill Holiday Park to Bloody Foreland – Day Three – Part 1

Waking up at the Rosguill Holiday Park, it was a very wet and windy morning. We awoke around 6:45am and decided to get up and access the showers. Excellent facilities on the campsite, the showers could only be accessed by a key you receive on check in. The key lets you use the male/female/unisex toilet blocks and access the male and female showers also, which is a rather spacious wet room with a shower, hooks for towels and a toilet. 1€ is enough for 6mins especially if you only want a quick wash. Only downside was the shower button had to be repeatedly pressed every 15secs to keep the shower on.

Included with the stay, much to our surprise was also access to a small kitchen, with a fridge, sink, kettle and toaster. Freshly toasted bread and jam for breakfast and a hot cup of tea – never had we been so happy, after such a miserable morning.

Waterproofs on, we packed up our tent and accessories and left at around 9am.
