My mammy and I took a trip to Kilmacrennan today to leave my brother off at a gaelic match and while we were there, we took a look at some of the gorgeous scenery. One thing you just couldn’t miss were the cutest little cottages this side of Donegal. There was actually a museum inside but we got distracted by a veggie cart and forgot to go in! I’ll have to put it on some kind of list to remember to go back.
I picked up some Donegal dulse (dried seaweed) from the cart so I’m going to fry that up with some herbs and have it with Linda McCartney sausages and beans on toast tomorrow. Delicious!
It was the sunniest of days today (which anyone living in Ireland will know is super rare) and I had Lavera suncream on my face but none on my body. I was convinced I’d be lobster red by the end of the day, but thankfully I avoided sunburn by jutting in and out of shady patches!
There was a car boot sale at the church across the road from the cottages in aid of the Northwest 10k but although we went to take a look, there wasn’t much there. Though I did have my eye on 70s style upholstered chairs that turned out not to be for sale! Sickened, but it’s probably for the best. I need to save more!
There was also the cutest little caravan next to the veggie stall selling tea and muffins and the like. I got really excited when I saw a chalkboard menu with the words ‘VEG’ in front of something, but it turned out not to be vegan unfortunately. It was a really unique little business, though, so hopefully they’ll expand their choices in the future to include at least soy milk (fingers crossed!)
We had hungry bellies so we drove back into Letterkenny to get some food at Wholegreens, an (almost) vegan cafe that serves delicious, filling food for vegetarians and vegans alike! I got a vegetable korma and picked the plate clean. I would highly recommend it if you’re in the area.
If you haven’t checked out my vegan haul video, check it out to see the vegan treats I picked up for myself in town as well!
Overall it was a gorgeous day and I so wish I’d gone to the beach as well. Next time!
