The Inishowen Peninsula was our destination yesterday and what a wonderful place this is if you want to get away from it all. Ireland's most Northerly point is at the top of this peninsula at Malin Head ad below you can see the old ruined castle that marks this
Beautiful heather at the roadside in the Donegal Hills.
The famine village at Doagh is a must if you visit Inishowen. This is a genuine village and your guide actually lived in one of the old homes here up to 1983.His knowledge of the village and of the area and its history is brilliant and you will leave here with a much better understanding of life in Ireland and the hardship endured by its people .
Below i have posted some pictures of this place.
Here you can see a large picture showing visitors enjoying some refreshments at the famine village.
Old famine cottages inside the centre.
A scene depicting an eviction. The triangular wooden frame holds the battering ram which was used to knock the homes so that the evictees could not move back in.
Another wonderful view of the coastline on Inishowen from high on the mountains above.
