The Donegal region

Donegal is located in the north west corner of Ireland. It's a county that boasts a raw natural beauty with its jagged coastline, blanket bogs, mountains, cliffs, lakes and stunning golden beaches. It also has two inhabited offshore islands (Aranmore and Tory Island), a national park and lots of historical attractions.

County Donegal is brimming with things to see and do. It's a haven for outdoor activities so take the time to enjoy a round of golf, a spot of fishing, hiking, horseriding or surfing. Hire a car and take to the Donegal roads, as this is the best way to explore this fascinating county. There are lots of driving routes in County Donegal with the most popular probably being Inishowen, which is a scenic drive around the Inishowen peninsula taking in Malin Point - Ireland's most northerly point.

Popular attractions to look out for on your travels include Glenveagh National Park - a nature reserve with 40,873 acres of woodland, glens, gardens and a 19th century castle. The Slieve League Cliffs are an exciting experience especially if you take the 8km drive along its hairpin bends as they are said to be the highest cliff face in Europe! Or you could also visit Lough Derg - a popular place of pilgrimage, where St.Patrick is said to have stayed in a cave during his time as a missionary in Ireland.


Culdaff is small village set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, rich in history, with origins dating back to monastic times in the 8th century. A river runs past the village, which transforms into a tidal estuary rich in wildlife, before reaching the beautiful sandy Culdaff beach. Despite its small population of approx 200 people, the village has two grocery stores, a petrol station, post office and hardware store, along with several pubs, takeways and a restaurant.

A short walk from the village is the famous Culdaff beach, a long stretch of golden sand from Caratra to Bunagee which is very popular in summertime with swimmers, surfers and daytrippers. This blue flag beach also hosts a childrens playground and has good car parking facilities.

The Inishowen Peninsula has lots to offer: stunning scenery, beautiful beachs, famous golf courses and rich cultural heritage. Davenport's Cottage is ideal for visiting local attractions such as Malin Head, Ballyliffin Golf Course, Trabreaga Bay, Grianan of Aileach, Bushmills Distillery and Glenveagh National Park.
