Inishindie will probably agree that Inishowen is definitely the most beautiful area of Ireland.

With sandy beaches, spectacular sea cliffs, bog moorland, beautiful architecture, thatched cottages, malin head and with some of the best festivals in Ireland.

The west of Ireland people just love to share.
No need to give the rain back, you can keep it. Very Happy

Hi

I was privileged to travel around Ireland in a caravan for a year some time ago. We were basing our travels on a book called 'The Hidden Gardens of Ireland' and in that time we tried to see most of the gardens and homes from the book. This adventure took us all over and we met some very interesting people along the way. I was amazed at the beauty all over the island,and we were welcomed at every stop. I agree that Inishowen is a beautiful place (urban sprawl and all) but I would find it hard to say that it has the most beauty. I am very fickle and fall for anywhere I can sit and relax for a while!

The one point I note about Inishowen is that if you stay in certain areas (I spent time in Culdaff) you can miss a season. We were staying didn't have any trees so we missed the autumn!!

I do like the rain though ,it saves on watering and when the water wars come after the oil wars we can collect the liquid from the roofs of our houses and not be dependent on mulinationals!

Ian

Talking of books, did you ever read the book about the fellow who travelled around Ireland with the fridge?

I didn't Julie did though and she read me out the funny bits!

Going back to the comments earlier about the best festivals in Ireland. If you are around the Inishowen peninsula this weekend (June 30th) there is a festival on at Inch island. The inishowen Summer gathering is in its third year and attracts people from all over the country. Check out the website
