Great pics, thanks for posting, Dubhy, although I think you should edit the caption of the pic of Glenveagh to read 'home of the midges' :lol:

You are absolutely right about the midges nessieq,they seem to live in every single corner of Glenveagh and surrounding areas.My arms did look like the Derryveagh Mountains after the holiday,the little monsters seem to get everywhere. :x

we were in gaoth dobhair and meenaleck as well in september. yesterday we returned from our ireland trip.
leo's tavern was quite empty as we were were on a friday afternoon. i'd been there when they were building the new tavern and now i saw it finished. i wished we could have stayed for the night but we had to go back to our hotel in sligo. but at least i finally had a drink in leo's tavern!

donegal is my absolute favorite county, the landscape is so rough and special. i love it!

Thanks for sharing - there's some lovely photos there!

And midgies in Glenveagh? Surely Bunbeg has the most evil midgies from the bowels of Hell of anywhere in the world!?! I NEVER, EVER, EVER get bitten by them, but one night last year I was bitten within an inch of my life - so they must be evil - either that or the Chinese take-away I was trying to scoff was too good for even midgies to resist! :lol:

maulwurfinchen,Leo's Tavern can be quiet when the tourist season is over,but still is a great place to visit.A winter's night around the open fire with stories from the locals can be great fun too ! :)
wonkey_eggs,the midges are evil,they are the special forces among the insects.Silent approach,bite and retreat

Hello I'm planning to go to Crolly, visit Leo's tavern and all surrounding areas, but I'm not plenty sure of where to stay.

Could you advice on some B&B and contact info?

Thank you :D

Hi there :)

First of all, welcome to the Moya forum! Good to see you here :)

Both times I've been to Gweedore I've stayed at the Cara na Mara Bed and Breakfast in Bun Beg. It's really well placed for the beach, but if you want to get to Leo's you'll be needing transport, if you're going to have a car you'll be fine :) I'm afriad I don't know what the public transport is like.

Here's Cara na Mara

Public transport is just horrible up there. :P Private buses kind of run around, with John McGinley connecting Crolly with Bunbeg, and some other companies too, but I`m not sure of their routes.
If you don`t have your own transport, I`d recommend taxis, which as I was told, are not that expensive. Or let me know and I`ll drop you some more bus companies. :)

And welcome here! :)
And so - this is where I should be now
