Travel Guide

BookTrail it to Ballybray, Ireland

The Ballybray in the book is actually in County Donegal but the real one is in Co. Monaghan so this is on the map. You should go to this one and pretend you’re in the fictional one!

“Ballybray…was a rural, one street village near the north-west coast of Ireland of County Donegal, the key attributes of which were a huge lake on the south side and a wild patch of forest on the top of a steep hill known as ‘Warren’s Wood’ on the north, even though no one seemed to know who was Warren is or was.”
