Donegal

6 day trip to Ireland the only holiday I and Steinunn are having together this year, Ireland was the choice, thereof we spent three days in Donegal area with Willk and his wife.
On Saturday we took Tory Rascal out (Willk´s RedBay Stormforce 6,5) to Buncrana where we met up with Donegaldan with his Searider Baby Doll also there was John on his Ferryman 6.3 Swilly Goose.

We went on three RIB´s all way out to Dunaff Head across to Fanad Head to PortSalon where we had lunch and met up with the girls, Willk even offered Steinunn (my wife) to join us on the boat (brave man ) and got smiply NO for an answer..... boat is something she will pass.

To see the wrackage of the fishing boat in the cave (see http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=23735 ) as said there I have seen many wreckage but this one is just like an art (if we can talk about art in this)

What amased me most was how few boats where out although not the best of weather partly rained but was warm and mostly calm seas, and I must say they have a smashing "fjord" to play with.

We came across a Hysucat in Portsalon, as well there was RedBay Stormforce 11 on tour from Buncrana to Portsalon with passangers.

Cruising the coastline was lot a like many of our coastlines, although many of mountains are a lot greener than over here.

It was great time out and I want to thank Willk, Donegaldan and John for their extreme hospitality and great time taking out their RIB´s and take me out.

Here are few of the pics taken

Nice story and pictures.
I've been many times in Donegal and know a lot of the places you mention. But now I get the chance to see them from the sea side.

Thanks Mark, it is worth taking your RIB across and explore the Donegal from sea
