I chose to take a slow, scenic route to Michael Classon’s garden recently, meandering past the village of Narin and onwards past Dawros Bay.
View across the Atlantic from Narin
The road is rather narrow in places but the view is definitely worth it!
Dawros Bay was the location for a 1994 film called “The Secret of Roan Inish,” starring Susan Lynch, John Lynch, Mick Lally…
The story centres around a young girl called Fiona who goes to live with her grandparents. She listens to stories of her family’s past on the little island of Roan Inish, and learns of a female ancestor who was a selkie, a beautiful part human/ part seal.
If you enjoy gentle, mystical movies, you will love it!
The cliffs in the distance are called Sliabh A Tuatha. Sliabh means mountain and Tuatha is Irish for people, tribe or nation.
