It was one of those random moments when someone asked me if I would like to go for a drive. I’d been at my computer solid for a few days and needed a break – so I jumped at the opportunity. Mind you, I had no idea where – it didn’t seem to matter.
A short drive to the small coastal village of Muckross, about 15 mins from Glencolmcille.
Watching the waves pound the rocks reminded me a little of a mini Cliffs of Mohar – yet it was devoid of tourists – in fact anyone. The sun was shining (for a change – haha) which lit the scenery’s glorious autumn colours. I was like a child in wonderment standing – absorbing its essence.
The enormity of Slieve League (the highest sea cliffs in Europe) to the right and the distant mountain of Sligo to the left made for brilliant backdrops for this gorgeous hidden gem. You can sit and ponder life, or just enjoy nature’s magnificence.
