Wild Atlantic Way – Glenveagh National Park – Day Four – Part 2

After a busy morning spent travelling and trying to pack in as much as we could in the surrounding areas of Gweedore and Errigal, we finally arrived at our destination.

Glenveagh National Park is the second largest national park in Ireland; it covers 170 square kilometres of hillside above Glenveagh Castle on the shore of Lough Veagh.

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.
