Greetings From Creeslough

We were up bright and early this morning so we could head off to Donegal Town, then Letterkenny, and finally, Creeslough (pop 393).

We are at Wild Atlantic Camp. It seems like a nice place--they have wooden pods, which are basically a room with electricity (no bathroom or water), bell tents, and camper van sites. We're staying in one of their new 'glamping villas.'
They are small, but well-designed and self-contained, with a kitchen area and a bathroom/shower room.

When we got here, it was still early for check-in and they were still cleaning after departing guests and preparing for incoming people like us, so we sat in the Happy Camper Cafe (specializing in pancakes) and had tea with pancakes and ice cream! There were a gazillion different toppings to choose from, but I don't usually say no to ice cream! I've never had it on a pancake before, but it was yummy and the pancakes really are good.

After we checked in and put our backpacks down, we went out for a walk through the village and beyond. We both like it, although there is really hardly anything there.
pretty nice bus stop!

We've wanted to come here for a few years now, but there was no vacancy when we looked into it. This time, we got in during the 'low' season. It's nice to finally get here!

It looks like a very nice place to take a vacation, mini or otherwise. I hope you have a great time and hope you share some more photos from your time there.
