Grianan of Aileach, or the "Stone Temple of the Sun" sits majestically, 800 feet above sea level on the Greenan mountain, Inishowen, County Donegal eternally drinking in the breathtaking views of Lough Swilly, Lough Foyle and the Inishowen peninsula.
The ancient ringfort was first built by the Tuatha de Danann, a race that invaded Ireland before the Celts, around 1700 BC and was the Palace of the Northern Princes, The Princes of Aileach long before Ireland saw Christianity and up until about the 14th century!
The Princes of Aileach played a very important part in the history of Ireland, many of them went on to become Ard Righ or High Kings.
According to legend, the "Giants of Inishowen" (Princes of Aileach) are sleeping, but when the sacred sword is removed the will spring to life to reclaim their ancient lands.

🇮🇹Facendosi cullare dal vento con le gocce di acqua salata sul viso pronti a visitare i luoghi più affascinanti dell'Irlanda.💚
Mi ricordo esattamente quel pomeriggio di luglio in cui siamo arrivati alla fine di questo sentiero inerpicato a picco sul mare. Stavamo scattando delle foto quando ad un tratto Kevin mi ha preso la mano, mi ha fatto volteggiare ed ha iniziato a ballare. 💃Abbiamo ballato salsa tra il vento delle scogliere irlandesi, ridendo e cantando la musica che amiamo.❤️
Sono questi momenti speciali a rendere un viaggio indimenticabile, la spontaneità ed i sorrisi. ✨ 🇬🇧Being lulled by the wind with drops of salt water on your face ready to visit the most fascinating places in Ireland.💚
I remember exactly that afternoon in July when we arrived at the end of this steep path overlooking the sea. We were taking pictures when Kevin suddenly took my hand, made me twirl and started to dance.💃 We danced salsa in the wind of the Irish cliffs, laughing and singing the music we love.♥️ These are special moments to make an unforgettable journey, spontaneity and smiles.✨
