memorial

located on Assaroe Road in Ballyshannon is the Port of the Dead, named for a spot where the recently deceased were transported before bridges were built across the Erne. The journey was made in silence until the boats crossed the water and the dead were brought to rest at nearby Assaroe Abbey.

Sister Sara's has just been renovated and recently reopened their pub and kitchen featuring a new menu and live music.  We have never been in there so maybe the next time we're in Letterkenny we will check it out.  I heard it is a popular place to have lunch.

Duntally Wood Nature Reserve

While we were in Creeslough, we had a chance to visit Duntally and walk the trail.  What a beautiful place this is with lots of green.  As we walked the trail, we came across one guy with his dog and didn't see anyone else.  We walked to the end of the trail and turned around and headed back to where we started.  It was so quiet all we could hear were the birds singing and our footsteps.  A lovely way to spend part of the morning.







Duntally Wood Nature Reserve is a 2.5km loop trail takes you from the car-park along old cart-ways and down into the valley bottom. Potatoes and cereals were once grown in these meadows. Some have been cleared of tree cover to increase diversity within the woodland.
Extending to over 15 hectares it is a fantastic example of an oak, ash, hazel woodland. Other notable tree species include Holly, Elm and Downy Birch. Ground flora is varied throughout the woodland and changes with soil and habitat type, common species include wood anemone, early purple orchid, hard fern, wild garlic, meadowsweet, bugle, and bluebell.

Rose's

Rose's Bar & Kitchen , 102 years at this location in Creeslough.
We visited Rose's Kitchen and it was a lovely little place and the salmon we had was excellent.  Didn't go in to the bar because we didn't want a drink.


the plaque can be seen on the facade of the building by the door.

sweet sign

I'll pass, not a big fan of donuts.  We were in Letterkenny yesterday and passed this bakery with the donuts in the window.  I haven't had a donut in years and was rather shocked that they were so expensive.  Must be "special donuts" for that price.
