I spent a very enjoyable weekend at the Slieve Donard hotel with Marty’s family. The hotel was beautiful but it’s the setting that makes it special. It’s both on the coast and at the foot of the Mourne Moutains. It really is the place where, “the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea”.
After checking out we went for a drive towards Silent Valley and Spelga Dam. I wanted to see if I could find a good place to take pictures of the choppy sea. I didn’t manage that but we did find a couple of places to stop in the mountains.
