The Donegal region
Errarooey is a stunning unspoilt area of Donegal. It's hard to put in words how truly beautiful it is. The golden sandy beach has to be seen to be believed. The views of the mountains, ocean and islands will calm your soul and soothe your mind. This tranquil area is dotted with megalithic structures as man has marvelled at its beauty for thousands of years. The area has numerous rivers and lakes for anglers. The surrounding area is steeped in history from Colm Cille to Cromwell.
The places of interest are too many to mention but they include Glenveagh National Park, Ards Forest Park, Ray Church, Dunfanaghy Workhouse and Dunlewey Centre. Errarooey is in the Cloughaneely area in between the towns of Dunfanaghy and Falcarragh. Errarooey marks the start of the Gaeltacht which is the Irish speaking area of Donegal. Dunfanghy is a lively sea side town with plenty of bars and restaurants. The local farmers market takes place on a Saturday during the summer months.
Falcarragh is the main Irish speaking town in the area. There is a lively market in Falcarragh on a Friday morning. The traditional Shamrock Bar sells the best Guinness is the area (in our opinion!) Both local towns offer all visitors a 'céad míle fáilte!' A hundred thousand welcomes!
The area is full of outdoor activities including fishing, surfing, hiking, walking, horse riding and golfing.
There are many festivals including the Errigal Arts Festival (www.eaf.ie) Dunfanaghy Summer Festival and The Dunfanghy Jazz & Blues Festival (www.dunfanaghyjazzandblues.com). The local surf school www.narosalife.com is a must for both kids and adults alike.
