As an international travel writer, I have had the good fortune of exploring many parts of the world yet one of the destinations that still pulls at my heart strings is the picturesque Donegal island of Gola and the enjoyable ferry trip over to it on ‘The Cricket’ with Captain ‘Sabba’ Curran. For anyone living in Ireland or visiting Ireland from another country, I encourage you greatly – take a trip there and bask in its tranquility and natural beauty.Sean Hillen, travel correspondent, JustLuxe.com  and WorldItineraries.co

Panicking yesterday with the bad weather that we wouldn’t make it back but the guys choose the perfect gap in the weather to get us all back over safe and sound. Even got a tractor and trailer down to take our bags to the house on the way over – top notch service!!” Noel Mc Cafferty
