bangor trail
oliver
ive only ever done the bangor trail in the summer, and even at that time of year there are sections that are very soft underfoot, ive gone down up to my knees and hips before, that said i dont know what its like in the winter... the worst sections are immediately after the footbrige at lat 16 - long 868, ( sorry not very good at grid ref ) its over the tarsaghaunmore river..although in your case you'l meet this area before the bridge ( i usually go the other direction ) the track is not very well defined here its more of a wander over bog.... otherwise if you stay on the track.. especially around nephin beg and corslieve ( i tried to cut across once, its very boggy and lots of small streams make it hard work ) i would imagine youd be ok... although the area immediately after you leave the lodge will be very wet too, where it follows the river up to the valley between nephin beg and glennamong.. but should be manageable.. to get to the point i wouldnt do it at this time of year...photo of part of trail attached

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

There's a salty tidal lake on the island.

I did kayak to the island in 2014. There is a slipway facing the mainland. Lot's of ruined houses. Walking is decent as the island is flat but in places ground is uneven and overgrown, there are o...
