Travellers and activities

County Donegal for adventurers

Near the Gaeltacht area of Gaoth Dobhair, The Errigal, the highest peak in County Donegal is a perfect place to start climbing. The peak dominates the landscape of north-west Donegal and has a strenuous hike to its pyramidal summit which is rewarded with incredible views. In the shadow of Errigal, the mountains of Derryveagh National Park provide a paradise of mountains, lakes, and forests to explore on foot or by bike. The park also boasts a castle that contrasts with the wild surroundings. And another must-do experience is a trip to the Slieve League cliff. This sacred mountain rises 600 metres above the waves and has unparalleled views. And located just minutes from the cliff, you can find Donegal's secret waterfall! The Largy Waterfall is located inside a cave, so you can only visit at low tide. County Donegal definitely has a lot of terrain and scenery that makes it a very pleasant getaway if you're looking to venture into new places.

County Donegal for beach lovers

With 1,134 km of sandy beaches, County Donegal is home to some of the best beaches in Ireland. The beautiful Narin-Portnoo beach is a great place to take the family and has a long stretch of white sand and Blue Flag waters. However, a swim at this beach is icy, so we don't recommend it if you're a keen swimmer. On the other hand, the remote Silver Strand beach is a great place for an inspiring walk and has pleasant water temperatures for swimming. Similarly, Ballymastocker beach is also one of the best for swimming, and has been voted the second most beautiful beach in the world by the British Observer. Another suggestion is Murder Hole Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland. Although it's not a safe place to swim, you'll enjoy stunning views and a fantastic sea cave which is accessible at low tide. Come rain or shine, County Donegal has plenty of stunning beaches that will amaze you!

County Donegal is nicknamed “Ireland's forgotten county”, thanks to its physical and political isolation in the far north-west of Ireland.

Top 7 travel tips in County Donegal

1. Admire one of the most unique natural phenomena in the world!

One of the most unique things to do in County Donegal is to see the Northern Lights. The county is Ireland's premier destination to see this breathtaking spectacle of dancing lights. To see them, look out for clear, cloudless night skies and head to the northern headlands of the county such as Dunree Head, Fanad Head, Mamore Gap and Malin Head on the Inishowen Peninsula where you're most likely to see them. Bundle up, light a fire and wait patiently to witness the wonderful phenomenon. The Northern Lights are a magical experience not to be missed on a Donegal holiday.

2. Marvel at the view from the top of Fanad Lighthouse

Known as one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world, Fanad Lighthouse is a County Donegal landmark you can't miss. Take a tour, listen to the stories about the lighthouse keepers of old and climb the 76 steps to the top of the tower for the incredible views. The lighthouse sits on the edge of the dramatic coastline between Lough Swilly and Mulroy Bay, and is one of 11 working lighthouses in the county.

3. Take a Ferry to the remote island of Tory

Tory Island is the most remote inhabited island in Ireland and is home to a number of interesting archaeological sites. Thanks to its remoteness, the island retains many ancient Irish traditions such as traditional music and dance, as well as the appointment of its own king! A visit to Tory Island is a must, and it will captivate you with its scenery, ancient legends, mysteries, and traditions that will give you your first taste of lost Gaelic customs.

4. Explore the incredible Grianán of Aileach Stone Fort

The Grianán of Aileach is one of Ireland's most prominent megalithic sites and Inishowen's best known monument. Discover the Bronze Age ramparts, climb to the top and take in the breathtaking views over the glistening waters of Lough Foyle and Lough Swilly. The structure dates back to 1700 BC and sits atop a hill 250 metres above the sea. It is said that the fort was built by Tuatha de Danann, who invaded Ireland before the Celts and that the sleeping giants of Inishowen lie beneath the land…

5. Surf Bundoran's popular waves

If you're a surf lover, the town of Bundoran has been named one of the top twenty surf resorts in the world and is the surfing capital of Ireland. The place is a paradise for wave adrenaline lovers and has surf schools for all abilities and ages. In addition to this, the town has also earned the nickname 'Fundoran', thanks to its amusement park, places to eat and fun activities, so if you have kids, we recommend a trip to Bundoran!

6. Hike with friendly alpacas!

Walk with alpacas at Malin Head and hike the hills of Donegal along the Wild Alpaca Way. You can hike with your very own fluffy alpaca and enjoy the tremendous views of Malin Head and Glashedy Rock. The walk takes about 70 minutes and is a great way for children to distract themselves and familiarize themselves with these curious and friendly animals.

7. Discover the mix of landscapes of Ards Forest Park

With a rich biodiversity offering a combination of landscapes ranging from dunes, beaches, lakes, to coniferous woodland, Ards Forest Park is an oasis of tranquillity in County Donegal with plenty to explore. The Park covers over 1200 acres and has many picnic areas and walks that allow you to discover the diverse landscapes of the area. This natural gem is one of the most beautiful and varied parks in Ireland, so a tour of the park should not be left off your bucket list.
