So, where did you go and how was it?Thanks GTV _ I know the Atlantic Drive quite well as we used to drive out in my dads old Consul from Milford many many moons ago but I'll give it a go again, I'm expecting the worst of weather and may be surprised , such is Ireland, Slieve League looks amazing so think that's worth the trip
We had a great time and the weather held up well so top down 90% of the time - the worst storm was round Dublin but just kept driving through it - as long as you dont stop its fine.So, where did you go and how was it?
Sounds like a good trip. Glad that the weather held up for you and that you enjoyed your holiday. Long time since I drove through Wales but have great memories of the place.We had a great time and the weather held up well so top down 90% of the time - the worst storm was round Dublin but just kept driving through it - as long as you dont stop its fine.
Did the port tunnel which was fun with the Dellortos in full song
A2 round the coast with a detour round the amazing Torr Head road
Donegal - Mulroy Bridge - just had to drive over the 3m folly, dropped into Milford - my home town.
Atlantic drive - Downings - stopped in the singing pub for lunch
Derry for sightseeing
Slieve League cliffs - amazing scenery and quite a drive - took all the little roads - one with some pretty sharp hairpins and climbs
Past Errigal and dropped into the national park
All round Magilligan, drove on the strand at Downhill ( and nearly got stuck, the LSD got me out of that one)
The trips through Wales were amazing too - they have such good roads
Did 1600 mls and the only problem I had was finding Super unleaded
Our cottage in Eglington was superb - probably the best I've stayed at
And many more - just enjoying the empty roads and stunning scenery - my daughter was the perfect passenger as usual
