My mom and I took a 2-week trip to Ireland in August 2018. The trip was through Inishfree Irish Music Tours with tour guide Hugh Carthy and tour leader Tim Grimm. The tour featured sightseeing during the day, and private concerts of traditional Irish music each evening. It was all wonderful. The highlight of our fourth day in Ireland was Slieve League cliffs in County Donegal. The schedule included enough time to hike from the Teelin cafe to the cliffs. Some of us hiked, and others rode the bus to the upper parking lot.

Some of the musicians we met in Donegal were Ian Smith (guitar and vocals), Martin Crossin (uileann pipes) and Stephen Campbell (fiddle and vocals). We listened to live music that night at The Reel Inn in Donegal Town.

This hike followed the BLUE line:

Also, totally freaky looking over the edge of the cliff towards the water. Takes me back to Ireland to see the narrow roads with goats along side, ha.
