Well, what a debauched display of Guiness consumption, to be sure!
Past the Giant's Causeway, a surreal landscape of geometric rocks jutting into the ocean
, rope bridges to little islands,
sunny weather (but not quite 'get ya kit off' hot!), and to top it all, a town called "Muff"!
The pubs and the locals were absolute standouts - some of the friendliest we've ever met, and everyone had their tips on the best spots (and the best spots to get a tipple!)
Recommendations to head to County Donegal were well founded - the coast and villages were postcard perfect (and sooooo many lambs, but not one on a pub menu!).
We sadly said goodbye to Kate and Simon in Donegal town (our livers less sadly!) and our re-inititation into life of a campervan-meister!
Luckily we got a beauty of a van in a couple of weeks, so we were able to take a quick flight over to Northern Ireland with our good friends Kate and Simon from Perth (great way to spend your 30th, Kate!), who had hired a campervan themselves for 10 days. We saw it fit to tag along for 5 of those days while our own shaggin' wagon was being prepped and serviced.
