About County Donegal

County Donegal lies in the far north-west corner of Ireland bordering the Atlantic Ocean. It is noted for the beauty of its rugged coastline (the highest sea cliffs in Europe, in fact), ancient castles, small seaside summer holiday towns, and heather-covered moors. If you're looking for Irish culture and a whole lot of attitude - come to County Donegal. It preserves the folklore and customs of traditional Ireland and has inspired poets, musicians and authors through its incredible landscape. You'll receive all types of weather here - from brutal rains and snows to beautiful sunny days to enjoy on the sweeping beaches. The interior of the county finds remote mountains and placid lakes. Easy access to other Irish hot spots like Derry, Galway, and Dublin via car or rail is a major bonus.

Things to do in County Donegal

You will never run out of things to do in the various towns in County Donegal. The sights themselves are unforgettable. Slieve League, a must-see, is three times higher than their more famous cousins, the Cliffs of Moher. Glenveagh National Park & Castle makes for an ideal day trip where the flora, fauna, and gardens could keep you busy for hours. Hikers should follow the Bluestack Way through the Blue Stack Mountains or you could always drive around Lough Eske for more views. Journey off the beaten path a bit to see Glengesh Pass, a lush grassy knoll. Step back in time at the Dunlewey Lakeside Center to see a traditional Irish homestead or head to the Wild Atlantic Way and enjoy the attractions and sights at Malin Head.
