Watch: Dolphins delight visitors as they swim alongside boats at Sliabh Liag

The pod of dolphins accompanied the boat for part of the trip

People enjoying a trip with Sliabh Liag Boat Tours on Sunday were treated to the beautiful sight of dolphins swimming alongside the two boats.

Among those on board was Donegal Live journalist Siobhán McNamara who captured some footage of the dolphins.

"It was amazing to see them so close up, and at such a beautiful part of our coast," she said. 

"We did the trip to celebrate my daughter's birthday and this experience made it all the more memorable.

Basking sharks were also seen from the boats several times last week.
