We left the children in Ballymena on Friday morning and drove to Co. Donegal. Check in wasn't until 4pm so we booked in to the spa at the Shandon Hotel at Marble Hill. We had the place to ourselves and sat in the outdoor hot tub over looking the beach and the sheep dotted hills.
We just relaxed. Lots of walks on the beach, pottering about in the town and hotel breakfasts, lunches out and good dinners with wine.
We certainly needed a little break.
