We are settled in Bundoran, north of Sligo. The wow factor here is the sea just over the back wall. It is always there and really wonderful. The sunset and evening sky has been clear our first two nights, a bit different from Dingle where we often had heavy clouds, fog, or rain at night.We are in Tullaghan, a hamlet that has two pubs and a lot of summer/second homes. We had tea with our hosts, who came from Dublin to meet us since we are staying for a full month. They were very kind, left us cookies and cake and all the instructions. Later we met our next door neighbors, Frances and Paul from a town near Belfast, here with their three children for a vacation. They were here last year and are back again.

The house is two stories and has all the mod cons (washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave) that I missed in Italy. We are comfortable and looking forward to visitors later in the month.

We’ve visited a couple of beaches and located the stores. Now we’re ready for adventure.
