The Donegal region
Donegal is in the north west of Ireland and runs from Inisowen, the penninsula to the north above the city of Derry to a border with Sligo and Yeats country at the southerly end. At Carraig Gorm you find views of the sky and sea that are characteristic of the area such as the Blue Stacks, the hills which run from Barnes Mor Gap to the seacliffs of Slieve League. Climb up and you can see Errigal, the highest peak in the hills of Donegal and spot the eagles that were reinstated at Glenveagh estate. Visit the Glebe Gallery for art and take in megalithic sites on the way. There's nothing typical about Donegal except the tranquillity and the wild countryside surrounded by hills and mile after mile of coastline.The weather is a rainbow of sunshine and rain in all seasons but never too hot or too dry.
Laghey Blast Festival on May Bank holiday weekend symbolises the community spirit and hospitality of the village. There is a strong spirit of history and heritage told in local stories and people come from all over the world to get in touch with their Irish roots. Murvagh Beach in Laghey is pure strand With the exception of Donegal Golf club hidden behind the dunes, the only facilities are the sea and sand with views of the Blue Stacks and Donegal Bay. From Murvagh you can walk along the coast to Rossnowlagh which is a world surfing centre where you find hotels and restaurants. There are miles of roads winding through farms and hills to explore by bike or on foot. Laghey is near enough to Donegal Town, Ballyshannon, Bundoran and Sligo to fulfill your need for shopping or seaweed baths.
