Rosbeg – Rossbeg, County Donegal, Ireland
We all know that Donegal is one of the very few places where you can arrive at a beach, see no other people for hours and have it all to yourself….. However! Donegal is also one of the few places where cows decide they are bored of grazing on our 40 shades of green grass and decide to hit the beach instead for a family day out!
To plan a day alone on an obscure Irish beach but on arrival be greeted with a full family of cows is just magical to witness. The father bull (ring on his nose) possibly several mum cows and all their calves simply strolling and laying down on the warm sand, just loving coastal life. If you look closely, you will see they may also have built a few sandcastles lol
Again, only in Donegal would you find sandcastles and mushroom houses built in stone at a beach on top of rocks. I guess it must be our Fairies holiday homes when they are away from their woodland dwellings. One of the strangest and most memorable trips I’ve had to the beach for sure.
