This episode shows Paddy on his painful way to Malin Beg in Donegal County. Obstacles on the road like other drivers or sheep constantly slow him down, especially at Glengesh Pass, until he is stopped by a traffic jam at Glencolmcille Folk Village. This film contains additional recordings at night and they are so bad that Paddy never recorded night scenes with his GoPro Hero2 afterwards. The last minutes of this episode show scenes from Paddy in his natural habitat. All's well that ends well.

This episode is all about County Donegal (Contae Dhún na nGall) and under the slogan "Up here it's different". County Donegal is one of Paddy's favourite places. He loves to drive around there, narrow and bendy roads without traffic. Even Paddy's most-loved stop sign is on one of Donegal's roads. Another thing about Donegal roads is that you'll never know where you end up. Take, for example, the road behind Donegal Airport, no one would expect one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Well, that's not true. Paddy, the Navigator, would know ‐ because that's what he does. And that's why there's a tribute song to the Navigator in this episode. The film concludes with an homage to old days with crappy equipment. Thank God Eris these days are over.

Paddy enjoyed a superb countryside and surprisingly nice weather on Inis Eoghain instead of driving through snow and ice. Paddy enjoyed it so much that he was eager to try out new things. Traditionally Paddy places his camera on an engine bonnet, searches precisely for the right spot and then never changes it again. But not this time. He placed his GoPro on the driver's door and pointing backwards on the car's boot. This episode shows lovely spots around Malin Head, such as the most northerly point of Ireland or a moment when Paddy talked to a local and donated some coins ‐ needless to say he did not leave his car for that. The closing scene is about King Rudi, a small dog who loves to chase after small things. Take care, Rudi! May you catch your prey one day.

This seasons intro shows the road L1472 (R254) near Chur Hill in County Donegal. This particular road is famous for its trees, which tend to grow right into that road *cough*. Anyway, Paddy disproves four lessons about travel in Ireland: First, people in continental Europe often complain/joke about bad weather in Ireland. Well... Second, some say it's just not possible to drive fast on narrow roads. Third, there is always another driver going faster than you. Paddy tried very hard and drive more than two thousand kilometers on Irish (and Northern Irish) roads to disprove those myths. And last but not least, one should not watch out for animals on the road in Ireland, especially sheep. What could possibly go wrong?

Good news everyone! Paddy Murphy has visited Ireland again ‐ obviously he survived this journey too. But did Paddy learn anything from last time? Can he maybe escape his fate ‐ either drunk under a table in a pub or in another lush meadow where the best car in automotive history, past, present and future fails him once more? Season 3 of Paddy Murphy on Tour is coming soon!
The thing about Irish roads is that you'll never know what comes next after a hill or a bend. Just close your eyes, come and rely on the luck o' the Irish.Paddy Murphy, 2012
