  3. hi there

    I am originally from belfast, but for the last five years have been living in sri lanka, running a surfers guesthouse with my partner. We are hoping to relocate back to ireland in the next few months. As my partner is a keen surfer we have decided to move to donegal. I was wondering if you could give me any tips on which would be a good town along donegal bay. Somewhere with a cool traveller/ surfer type vibe would be ideal. As I am a massage therapist I will also need somewhere that has a need for demand for type of work. I was thinking about bundoran but have to admit haven’t been there for years. Any tips or website addresses would be really appericated.

    Thanks a million, Rachelle Donaldson
