Camping in County Donegal, Ireland

We went camping again this summer (for last years camp trip click here ((the photos of Ché Phoenix are insane!!)) this time at Rossnowlagh Beach, County Donegal, a bit closer to home as someone isn't fond of car journeys these days!

We went with my sister Pippa (or Auntie Squeak as she's more commonly known!) and Al's sister Sel and her hubby James - 3 of the coolest people in the world. So it was always gonna be great :)

Ché Phoenix LOVED the beach, I mean look at that FACE!!! I have about 200 photos of him in the sea, rock climbing, digging, and just running free :) In 99% of them he is totally naked (even cuter!) but we'll keep those ones to ourselves I think, infact he spent most of the holiday naked, wild and free, thats my boy <3

County Donegal is on the North West coast of Ireland, its rugged, wet and windy (even in summer)! Luckily we had brought our market stall gazebo to make a communal area to hang out in at the camp and we still went on loads of walks and had an amazing time.


The best thing was that we forgot our iPhone chargers and so were completely unplugged and disconnected for the whole week, a blessing in disguise. I felt so present in the moment and relaxed in a way I know I couldn't be whilst being online and contactable. Lesson learned - holidays are iPhone free times :)

That squished up annoyed face with the up turned hand, whilst saying 'nuu' and shaking his head slightly is our favourite these days. It means 'it's not there anymore, its gone, not sure I'm happy about it!

Note: I may have pulled that face as we drove home from that wonderful family break...


  1. How lovely. I love camping. My son-in-law has just taken my granddaughter on a camping holiday, much of which was in Donegal. Your wee man is growing up and I just love that smile : )

    1. Oh thats so cool, Donegal is just brilliant! And yes he is just keeping on growing! I still can't get over him, he's amazing :)

  2. Sounds like a great outing. Lovely family you have.

  3. Good idea about no Internet or phone. I should probably try that when we go on holiday. Looks like you had a great time.

    1. Oh Kev definitely do it, i think you guys'd be the type of people to really love that extra disconnection :) I think I may have to actually leave the charger at home again though because my will power isn't the greatest, if its there ill probably use it :( lol
