Jib Luff, Inver Port.

What to do!

The Northwest of Ireland in the province of Ulster, is a great place to have a sea based holiday whether you enjoy boating, fishing, swimming or looking at the magnificent scenery. The recent initiative by the Irish tourist board has resulted in the creation of the Wild Atlantic Way which showcases the entire regions coastline. The local hospitality is beyond comparison in the many local bars and pubs. Many have live music during the tourist season, our two favourite places to enjoy the craic are Nancy's bar in Ardara and the Smuggler's Creek, in Rossnowlagh. The area to the west of Jub Luff has the highest sea cliffs in Europe at Slieve League.

Sand dunes near Ardara. Slieve League sea cliffs. There are many Irish speaking areas in the small villages dotted along the coastline, with local crafts such as weaving and knitting. The Rosses area around Ardara, the village of Teelin near Slieve League are of particular beauty, and further afield you can enjoy the Giants Causeway, Bluestack Mountains and Bloody Foreland.
The area is very much one of natural beauty... the glorious scenery connects you to the natural charm of Ireland. Even if you do get a bit of drizzle and the tops of the local mountains are shrouded in mist, it is the rich palette of colours that continually tug at your senses. Absorb the fierce yellow gorse, pale green reeds standing to attention in the bogs and the dark brown trenches where peat has been dug over the centuries. Watch the black horns of the sheep peeping over the dry stone walls and white seagulls circling overhead. The silvery waterfalls cascade down the mountains whilst the sea provides continual white cusps of surf on the pristine sand beaches.....perpetual memories of a glorious holiday which will stay with you for the rest of your life. This is Ireland at it's best.
