We stopped here after visiting Glenveagh National Park. This abandoned church sets down in the Poisoned Glen. We had the whole church pretty much to ourselves and got some great pictures. Well worth the stop.

Even as a roofless relic of the past, this place is beautiful. The landscape and enchantment of the place is breathtaking, regardless of the weather. It's a hidden gem among the Hills of Donegal. It is also home.
