As you can tell, Donegal truly inspired me. I was so lucky that the weather was truly spectacular but I am known for taking a lot of photos. On Sunday morning, after a hearty Irish breakfast at my bed and breakfast- The Willows at the top of main street, and a good chat with two sisters who were travelling around the area. I headed back into Dunfanaghy to get some more photographs of the town. As it was a gorgeous day and being right on the sea, the surf shops were open early.
Never really been interested in surfing- as I know I'd never be able to balance but if you are- this is the place to be.
This great store- Muck 'n' Muffins houses a pottery studio and gift shop and then upstairs a coffee shop which offers fantastic views of the harbor and surrounding landscape. It opened in 2000 and is situated in an old grain store that was built in the 1800's. It is run by Deborah and Emma Moore.
Inside you'll find a wonderful treasure trove of goodies. Much of what is on display is the delightful range of pottery pieces which are made using traditional methods of throwing on the wheel and hand-building techniques right on the premises. Products range from tableware to sculptural pieces.
I thought these were just delightful. A perfect little something for the kids to take home to remind them of their holidays.
