A gorgeous, nonpareil enclave of Europe, Donegal County is one of 26 in the Republic of Ireland and a notable Emerald Isle pride and joy. The county, home to some 150,000 people, shares a land border of more than 100 km with Northern Ireland. At 4,841 km2, Donegal County is a significant enterprise to undertake as a tourist but a worthwhile one for those who can invest a week or more. The inherent ensemble of towns, mountain and coastal landscapes and heritage landmarks in Donegal County is without peer in Ireland.

From surfers to history buffs, Donegal County lures a diverse mix of tourists. The county makes a memorable road trip and indeed, for the hearty, unfurls magnificent trails for anyone with a good bicycle or comfortable pair of walking shoes. Scenery-wise, Donegal County rolls out the most rough-hewn topography in the province of Ulster, from the spectacular Slieve League sea cliffs to the Seven Sisters summits of the Derryveagh mountain range. Archaeology sites seem to dot every corner of Donegal County as well, from Neolithic dolmen portal tombs to the incomparable Iron Age Grianan of Aileach fortress. There are untold gems to explore on this inimitable parcel of Ireland and fortunately for visitors, Donegal County has over fifty towns and villages at the ready with amiable accommodations and sustenance.

Donegal County Rundown

If you truly, madly, deeply want to get away from it all, County Donegal in the north west of Ireland is the place for you. Its natural rugged beauty and sense of isolation making it feel more like a country than a county. Narrow country roads wind themselves around some stupendous cliffs – in fact Donegal has the highest sea cliffs in Europe, Slieve League, - and inland you can still find remote communities living amidst the bogs and heather. ...

Malin Head is Donegal’s most northerly peninsula and has been bracing itself against tough Atlantic stormy seas for as long as time itself. If walking here, take provisions, since you will only have a sheep or two for company. Banba’s Crown is most northerly point with Hell’s Hole to the left – a chasm in which the power of the sea can be seen crashing against the rocks.

Prepare for lots of different types of weather during a trip to Donegal, days which start fine can turn turbulent and stormy in a matter of minutes. If it does turn out nice, grab your beach bag and make a beeline for Rossnowlagh Beach, one of the most scenic and dramatic in the Northwest.

Donegal’s Top 10

10. Dunfanaghy Golf Club is a links course at the waterside. Difficult to keep your eye on the ball with scenery this good.

5. Glenveagh Castle has a stuffed stag in the entrance way, in fact in every room, in this miniature version of Balmoral.

9. An Grianan Theatre is a major arts venue in the northwest showcasing national and international productions.

4. The Glenveagh National Park Over 10000 square miles of protected land. You might even catch sight of a Golden Eagle, re-introduced in 2000.

8. Leo’s Tavern is run by Enya’s parents (wistful songstress or deathly bore - you decide).

3. Maritime and Heritage Centre At Killybegs, home to Donegal Carpets, which grace the White House and Bucks Pally.

7. The Heritage Centre in Dunfanaghy was once a workhouse and tells the moving tale of what life was like. Can get overrun with school kids.

2. Donegal Bay Waterbus Take in all the historic sites, seal coves, and ruined castles. Runs up to 5 times a day in summer.

6. Donegal County Museum has a permanent collection of over 8000 prehistoric artefacts. In Letterkenny

1. Donegal Castle Who can resist this romantic wreck of a monument in Donegal Town?
