So, In the second part of our Landmarks for foodies series we visit the Northwest.
Donegal and North Sligo have an abundance of things to offer the foodie loving Irish Landmarker.
St. Johns Point Lightkeepers’ Houses
St. Johns Point Lightkeepers’ Houses are fully equipped for a self catering break if that’s what you wish. Stock up on supplies before you go, kick back, cosy up at the fire and listen to the Wild Atlantic roar outside your door. If you fancy getting out for a bite to eat guests have recommended:
– Nancys in Ardara is a must serving delicious pub grub in an old world setting.
– Challenge your palette with organic Irish Seaveg in Kilcar, an 18km drive from the Lighthouse. Experience a day between the shore and the production unit, where the precious locally harvested marine plants are transformed in Organic Certified food ready to cook or to eat. Apparently its delicious!
