FTCK in Ireland
Colleen is back in Ireland, but this time she is taking a family friendly tour of the Wild Atlantic Way! Colleen flies into the gateway to the west of Ireland, Shannon Airport where she starts her trip highlighting family friendly attractions in the area. From there, Colleen joins a family on a kayaking expedition in Galway and learns about the local connection to the iconic Claddagh ring. Not far from Galway City, Colleen visits Cnoc Suain, a Gaelic cultural retreat, where she learns about the use of seaweed in the Irish culinary scene, plays the tin whistle with a leading expert and even dances to an Irish tune.
The vacation continues north in Donegal where families learn about the history of the area at Donegal Castle. Other families visited Glencolmcille Folk Village, where families can go back in time and learn about life in Ireland during past centuries. The children learn how rope was made, help spin wool, and even make traditional Bridget’s Crosses, a symbol of luck in Irish homes. Colleen enjoys a catch and cook experience in Killybegs, where she catches a monkfish that she then prepares with the chef at Kitty Kelly’s restaurant. The Wild Atlantic Way offers a unique experience for families who want to experience Ireland’s history, culture and adventure!
