The Wild Atlantic Way is fantastic on any given day. But on this particular day, the sun decided to do it's uttermost best to heat us up on this mid September day. So the decision was quickly made, we would go for a spin through North Co.Sligo. First stop of the day was Luke's bridge, the start of the climb up Benbulben. And it was busy enough at the small car park, some German and French tourist were just leaving the car parkmaking their way over to the bog road leading towards the climb up benbulben.
Benbulben is such a visual landmark in Co.Sligo, the tabletop mountain is an easy enough climb, but you are rewarded with fantastic views over Sligo's landscape. Next destination was the Gleniff Horseshoe drive. It is a 6 mile loop surrounded by the impressive Dartry mountains. At The furthest point of the Gleniff Horseshoe drive is a spectacular area surrounded by high rock walls, one of these making place for Diarmuid & Grainne's cave which is high up the mountain ridge at a height of 1000 feet making it Ireland's highest cave.
After this spectacular drive, we headed towards Mullaghmore. And what can we say, Mullaghmore doiesn't need an explanation,the pictures below speak for itself. The views of the Wild Atlantic Way, Classiebawn castle and Benbulben in the background is just mesmerising.
